Meanwhile, the US markets have closed again. We look at the live Bitcoin price and the prices of the top 25 crypto. Then we look at how the Dutch Public Prosecutor’s Office is striking a blow against ransomware. Furthermore, we see how the Polygon MATIC price can create a win-win situation. Finally, we look at the Dogecoin (DOGE) price forecast.
We begin, of course, with the live Bitcoin price and the prices of the top 25 crypto.
Live Bitcoin price rises, prices most top 25 crypto fall
Meanwhile, the live Bitcoin price is quoting EUR 19,481 ($20,300.01). This is 1.82% higher than yesterday around this time and also above $20,000 again after our Bitcoin lunch, in which we discussed key BTC prices.
For most crypto in the top 25, sentiment is less positive. There are some crypto that are posting gains, though. Polygon (MATIC) shows the best result with 5.87%. The biggest loss is currently with -3,66% for Polkadot (DOT). On the site of Tradeincrypto.com you can analyze all live crypto prices 24 hours a day.
Dutch Public Prosecutor’s Office strikes blow against crypto criminals, ransomware recovered
In 2019, Maastricht University was hit by a ransomware attack. At the time, the university decided to pay the requested EUR 200,000 in BTC to regain access to its administration. It then cooperated with the Public Prosecutor’s Office, which launched an international investigation. The trail led to the Ukraine. The search of the house and interviews with those ‘involved’ there led to the prosecution seizing a wallet that probably contained part of the loot.
The intention is now that the Justice Department will return this money to the university. Pleasant incidental circumstance is that the value of the found crypto has now risen to EUR 500,000. Although this is not enough to compensate the costs, the university wants to use the entire amount for a fund for students in need. You can read the entire press release here.
Crypto investors have faith in Polygon (MATIC), win-win situation
As we saw, Polygon (MATIC) is currently posting the best result of the top 25 crypto. The live Polygon (MATIC) price is $0.52.
The price was already rising sharply in recent days, leading to positive investor sentiment. Several fundamental factors can be identified for this rise:
The partnership with phone manufacturer HTC to bring the Desire 22 Pro to market. This metaverse focused smartphone will support Polygon (MATIC) and Ethereum (ETH).
In the process, the Polygon blockchain is becoming increasingly popular due to its low transaction costs. This in turn leads to an increase in the number of users, as many creators of popular apps choose the Polygon blockchain.
This gets investors excited and we can see this in the rising volume on the network. This amounted to 57% in the past 24 hours alone
Analysts therefore expect the Polygon (MATIC) stock price to continue to rise in the coming days.
Opportunities for investors in Dogecoin (DOGE)
Dogecoin (DOGE) is another crypto currency that investors are looking at with a lot of positive interest.
This, in addition to Elon Musk’s enthusiasm, this time has mainly to do with the news that cab service UBER has accepted this crypto as its official means of payment.
The live Dogecoin (DOGE) price is $0.0678. Although this is a loss of 1.81% from yesterday the market continues to see opportunities. The DOGE price analysis below shows where those opportunities lie.
Incidentally, there is no reason to rejoice fully yet. In order to break the structurally bearish pattern, this crypto will first have to break through the $0.078 level.
We are curious to see how soon this will happen. Will you?
