Cryptocurrencies saw a mixed day on January 25. Bitcoin and ethereum had risen about 2% and 5.5%, respectively, in the previous 24 hours as of 7:00 AM EST to $11,403 and $1,073.50, respectively. Ripple and litecoin had fallen 4% and 0.24%, respectively, in the previous 24 hours. They were at $1.33 and $181.5, respectively.

The overall market cap for all the cryptocurrencies was at $555 billion, and a $50 billion surge in the overall market cap on Wednesday resulted from the upward correction in most cryptocurrency prices. January 24 saw a double-digit percentage rise in the price of ripple, cardano, stellar, and NEO. The cryptocurrency market cap (SPX-INDEX) dropped to almost $415 billion during the last week due to the rout in most digital coins.
