Bitcoin and the other top 10 non-stablecoin cryptocurrencies opened the working week with gains in Monday morning trading in Asia, as investors seek to diversify portfolios amid banking turmoil and the Federal Reserve’s latest rate hike. Litecoin led the winners. U.S. equity futures rose this morning as authorities sought to reassure investors the financial system is sound following bank failures and sharp declines in some lender’s stocks. The total crypto market capitalization rose 1.34% in the past 24 hours to US$1.17 trillion. Over the last 24 hours, total trading volume dipped 4.67% to US$31.46 billion. (forkast)
