Amidst the hard-fork rumors and scare tactics of various efforts, bitcoin dropped as low as just under $900 before quickly recovering. It has since been hanging around $1000, however in the last 24 hours bitcoin has risen above $1100 once again.
This coming after a slew of Altcoin offerings experienced an increase in volume and market value. These included Ether, Dash, Monero, Litecoin, and others.
A few of these have dropped in value since, Dash being the most notably deflated since last Friday, while other are holding value such as Litecoin.
Litecoin is implementing SegWit on it's blockchain which would be a factor involved in that stability.
SegWit is one side of the block-size debate that caused the initial drop in bitcoin last week. Bitcoin Unlimited had gained substantial support, but bugs discovered recently seems to have weakened a portion of it's support.
Get on it!
