Thursday saw a decline in cryptocurrency prices as ethereum and bitcoin pared gains from previous rallies.

In other news, the price of Dogecoin increased by about 36% on Monday, reaching a high of 10.46 cents per token when Elon Musk’s Twitter changed the bird icon on its homepage to a Shiba Inu, the dogecoin cryptocurrency’s mascot. Musk has frequently praised Dogecoin and shared memes that are in favour of the cryptocurrency. His widespread popularity led to a $258 billion racketeering lawsuit against him last June for allegedly operating a pyramid scheme to artificially inflate the price of the meme coin.

Late on Wednesday, DOGE currency fell back towards 9.35; it had been trading at about 7.7 cents before the new design.

From $28,300 on Wednesday, bitcoin dropped to $28,000 by late on Thursday.

BTC surged to its highest level since June 10 on March 30 when it reached a high of $29,173. The biggest cryptocurrency in the globe has increased by 69% so far in 2018.

Thursday afternoon saw a decline in the price of Ethereum from its peak on Wednesday of $1,941, which was its highest point since mid-August and the first time it has above $1,900 in nine months. The Shanghai upgrade, which is due for April 12 and will complete ETH’s switch from a proof-of-work network to a proof-of-stake network, is gaining momentum.

Investments in digital assets are very erratic. Investors should keep in mind the same primary goals despite potential differences between cryptocurrency’s fundamentals and technical indicators. First, keep yourself safe by understanding when to sell, trim losses, or take profits. Second, get ready to make money if the price of bitcoin starts to increase.
