It was noted that the overall market capitalization of all 8,500+ coins in existence is around $1.59 trillion on Saturday morning.

According to, the live Bitcoin price today is $54,246.99 USD with a 24-hour trading volume of $46,679,256,760 USD.

This week the cryptocurrency community was pleased to hear that Elon Musk revealed that the electric car company Tesla will now accept BTC for purchases.

The CEO of Zumo, a digital wallet and payments platform, Nick Jones believes more brands will join Tesla’s lead.

“We’re delighted to see that Tesla is now accepting Bitcoin as a form of payment for their products,” Jones explained.

“The increased institutional investment and market support of cryptocurrency from such brands is a key indicator of not only its long-term value but its contemporary relevance.

Knowing that over half of UK crypto owners have purchased this currency in the last six months, I’d imagine that more brands will follow suit,” the Zumo CEO added.

Analysts said the absence of action brought a measure of relief, with prices ticking up to about $53,800, allowing the 12-year-old digital asset to reclaim its losses from the past couple days.

With March coming to an end, one analyst said Bitcoin should get “a nice tailwind” as hedge funds rebalance for quarterly reports or to manage risks.

Ether (ETH) was up on Friday, trading around $1,665.85 and climbing 3.68% in 24 hours as of 20:00 UTC (4:00 p.m. ET).
