Bitcoin, the predominant virtual currency, is now up more than 13% on the $5,900 price it commanded last Friday, before things started to look up again. At the time of writing on Thursday morning, it was at $6,750, up 3% on the day. There is no obvious reason for the rally, other than the fact that it has recently been a relatively cheap buy.
For most of the other leading cryptocurrencies, values are also looking better. Ethereum is up 3.1% at $482, XRP is up 1.1% at $0.49, and EOS is up 1.9% at $9.10. In the top five cryptocurrencies, only Bitcoin Cash is in the red, down 0.25% at $765.98.
