Comments from finder.com co-founder, Fred Schebesta:
“Not only are we now seeing a continuing increase in cryptocurrency prices, but the total volume traded has increased week-on-week for the first time since our May 28 analysis. This gives me hope that the bearish trend may be over and the cryptocurrency market is recovering. I’m not confident in it seeing the same heights as the market reached last year, but we could see a run at the end of the year.
“DigiByte has seen the greatest increase out of the top 100 coins, shooting up 58%. It’s been a week of good news for this coin. Most recently, crypto-payment platform UTRUST announced a partnership with DigiByte. The coin also announced that Coinome, an Indian crypto exchange, would be listing it as an XRP trading pair.”
