Weekend gains as Banque de France boss says crypto threatens euro dominance – .


There have been weekend gains for major cryptocurrency coins, despite a slight drop in the past 24 hours.

At the time of writing (7 a.m.) Bitcoin (BTC), which broke $ 35,000 on the weekend, is above £ 34,300. It was below $ 33,000 on Friday morning, but has fallen 2% in the past 24 hours. Its price over seven days is more or less the same.

Ethereum (ETH) is around $ 2,275 despite declining slightly in the past 24 hours, after dropping to $ 2,000 on Friday morning. It is up 15% from its price last Monday.

Ripple’s XRP coin is at 68 cents after falling 1% in 24 hours, but remains 5% above its position a week ago.

Cardano (ADA), at $ 1.42, is up 8% in one week and is trading 12c higher than Friday morning after losing just a single percentage point in the past 24 hours.

Meme Dogecoin (DOGE) coin is around 24 cents, where it was on Friday, after falling 3% in 24 hours. Its seven-day price is down 5%.

Binance Coin (BNB) fell 1% to just under $ 300 and rose 4% in one week.

Over the weekend, France’s central bank governor François Villeroy de Galhau said the euro’s monetary dominance was threatened by cryptocurrency.

De Galhau called for the rapid introduction of regulations to preserve the strength of the currency on a European scale.

“Whether it is digital currencies or payments, we in Europe must be ready to act as quickly as necessary, or take the risk of an erosion of our monetary sovereignty,” he said.

“I must stress here the urgency: we don’t have much time left, one or two years.

The aggregate market cap of the roughly 10,700 coins is $ 1.43 trillion after falling 0.75% in 24 hours.
