Bitcoin steady, reaches over $2,600
The world’s largest cryptocurrency was showing gains this morning for the third day in a row, settling above the $2,600 mark.

Will Ethereum cross $300 again soon?
After going against the trend and registering losses in the past 24 hours, Ethereum registered some gains this morning.

Trading volumes for the currency were some of the lowest seen recently, totalling at less than $800 million.
Korea to legalise cryptocurrencies
Asia’s fourth-largest economy, South Korea, could give cryptocurrencies a boost, as it will soon announce legislation regarding the cryptocurrency market.
