The global crypto trading volume spiked by 43.99 per cent to $102.63 billion as traders tried to take advantage of the low prices of almost all major cryptocurrencies. Despite a massive buying activity, the global crypto market cap is however down by 0.59 per cent at $1.96 trillion.

In another development, privacy focussed global chat messaging service company Signal is partnering with MobileCoin to enable its 40 million users (as of January 2021) to send and receive payments in MobileCoin crypto, reported Wired. The crypto exchanges that allow trading of this crypto are BitFinex and FTX.

Meanwhile, investors of the world’s oldest crypto Bitcoin (BTC) almost panicked when the prices dropped to $40,000 for a brief moment. As of 8.55 am Coinmarketcap data showed Bitcoin trading with gains of 0.38 per cent at $42,115.77.

“Bitcoin briefly fell below $40,000 after the U.S. stock market losses deepened as investors gear up for action from the (US) Federal Reserve tightening (interest rates). With BTC’s two-month-long downtrend, the upside momentum has weakened, which suggests that sellers
could remain active around resistance levels,” says Gaurav Dahake, CEO, Bitbns.
