Cryptocurrency Price: Bitcoin Tops $40,500; Elon Musk ready to buy Twitter, Dogecoin up 30%

The crypto coin reversed yesterday’s losses and was in the green. The recent volatility is due to factors such as inflation, the Ukraine crisis and the tightening of monetary policies. Barring dollar-based Tether, all major crypto tokens were trading higher during the early hours of Tuesday. Dogecoin jumped 29.56 percent. Terra is up 8 per cent, while Ethereum is up 5 per cent.

The global cryptocurrency market cap was trading at $1.86 trillion, up over 3% over the past 24 hours. However, total cryptocurrency trading volume increased by nearly 43 percent to $97.88 billion.

Sumit Khare, co-founder of BitsAir exchange, said: “Despite the pessimism in the market amid rising inflation and flamboyant remarks from the Federal Reserve, crypto tokens have gotten back some mojo following Musk’s $44 billion cash deal on Twitter. Tokens associated with Musk are rallying higher including Bitcoin and Ethereum, but Dogecoin was a standout performer. One should be wary of enthusiasm and avoid leveraged positions. This is neither the first time Musk has pushed the crypto markets up Nor will it last. Investors should be selective and avoid FOMO.”
