BTC is slowly growing to become a hedging tool even against a host of other virtual currencies. This leading virtual coin was able to profit as much as 6% just a day ago. With that, it closed the day at a price that was more than $8,700.
As all that was going on, other top rated cryptos also recorded some price changes in the market. Some of the cons that have negatively trended included EOS, Litecoin, as well as Ethereum. The huge contrast that exists between BTC and the rest of the coins shows a great capital flight.
Binance US Is Now Closed
On Friday, Binance announced that it was stopping all its customers based in the US from accessing its services.

With that announcement, the exchange was poised to lose close to 15% of the net monthly traffic. The directive will affect more than 40 billion customers.
The abrupt shutting down of the firm forced its customers from the United States to withdraw a huge number of altcoins. One of the coins that were largely withdrawn included BNB, which is Binance’s own native coin. The price of BNB also dropped by as high as 17% against the leading virtual coin, Bitcoin on Friday.
BTC Against The Liquidity Crisis Of Other Altcoins
