XCurrency Price Up 20% This Week

From November 28-30, the XCurrency price rose 14% to 34,648 satoshis. The price continued to incline the next two days, albeit at a lower pace. At press time, the XCurrency price was 36,093 satoshis.

However, investors should note that while the XCurrency price has risen, liquidity has remained extremely low. In the past 24 hours, less than 1 BTC worth of XC have traded on exchanges.

Is Recovery in Sight?

The XCurrency price has been in decline for the past several months, so this price increase is a welcome change for investors. But will it last? XCurrency stacks up well against the other major privacy-centric altcoins (which include Darkcoin, ShadowCash, and Anoncoin, among others) due to its many proposed innovations, which include the XChat Tor Stick (which XCurrency will begin distributing soon) the Blocknet, and the Xmixer. Investors will have to judge for themselves whether XCurrency is a sound investment. If so, now could be a good time to pick up XC at a relative discount.
