Cryptos Bounce Back As Backers Try To Prove A Point   

By Dhirendra Tripathi

Investing.com – The world of cryptocurrencies and blockchain is staging a recovery after Wednesday left it badly bruised.

Bitcoin ( BitfinexUSD ), the crypto with the largest market cap, was back above $42,000, bouncing back from the $30,000 depth it sank to a day earlier.

Ethereum ETH/USD and Dogecoin DOGE/USD , both of which lost more than a fourth of their value in the carnage, were also attempting to erase their losses, with the latter managing to recoup all of it.

Coinbase (NASDAQ: COIN ) was up 3%, still some way off from a full recovery after a near 6% erosion Wednesday. MicroStrategy (NASDAQ: MSTR ), a Bitcoin investor, was up 5%.

Shares of companies linked to blockchain technology, the basis of cryptos, were also up. Riot Blockchain (NASDAQ: RIOT ) and Marathon Digital (NASDAQ: MARA ) were each up 7% to 8%.

A 30% to 40% erosion in crypto values is not unusual but coming as it did amid a swirling debate around their stability, use as a store of value and use by criminals left many questioning their continued viability.

There had been much unease in the last few days over Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA ) CEO Elon Musk’s sudden shifting of allegiance to Dogecoin from Bitcoin, the latter also being the most popular crypto.

With China announcing a clampdown on crypto transactions Wednesday, all hell broke loose and crypto prices plunged, causing much amusement among their skeptics who question their value as a hedge against inflation and their viability against sovereign currencies.

That a CEO’s tweets can cause wild swings in their value has also not helped the cause of the crypto backers.

But Thursday’s comeback will give a huge sigh of relief to its supporters as they seek greater acceptance for the cryptos.
