Bitcoin, the world’s largest cryptocurrency, is trading slightly lower today. Bitcoin price is down 1.71% to $49,799 on Coinmarketcap. The market capitalization of the cryptocurrency has fallen to $43.35 billion.

Currently, the global cryptocurrency market capitalization is $2.37 trillion, with an increase of 0.24%. Other cryptocurrencies were trading on a mixed note today.

Ethereum rose 0.41% to $4,381 and Dogecoin was trading 1.08% lower at $0.1,774. Digital token Stellar fell 0.66% to $0.2944, and Litecoin fell 0.14% to $161.42.

XRP rose 4.03% to $0.857 and Uniswap increased 0.04% to $17.70.

Recently, cryptocurrency prices have skyrocketed on the back of comments by billionaires Elon Musk and Kathy Wood from Ark Investment Management LLC.

In late July, Elon Musk said that Tesla would “probably” start accepting Bitcoin as payment again. The comment helped the cryptocurrency to cross the $30,000 mark.

The electric car maker said in May that it would no longer accept cryptocurrency for purchase. It’s been a wild ride for bitcoin for the past three years.

The digital currency made its debut on Wall Street in December 2017, when major futures exchanges rolled out Bitcoin futures. Interest has pushed Bitcoin to nearly $19,300, an almost unheard of price for the coin.
