CoinMarketCap, a popular data site, therefore removed the exchange prices from South Korea in its calculation, resulting in an apparent drop in prices of currencies.

The answer depends on how one views the Bitcoin price rollercoaster.

Following the introduction of Bitcoin derivatives in the CME and CBOE exchange, JP Morgan's analysts have made a detailed study of the crypto currency and credited it with the status of emerging asset class, comparable to gold.

Many currencies in sub-Saharan Africa have lost value due to high inflation and supply mismanagement.

As per stats provided by CoinSchedule, which tracks ICOs, there were in total 235 coin offerings in 2017 which raised over United States dollars 3.7 billion for their promoters.

At the time of writing, Litecoin was down 6.6% to $232.4, with this morning's decline far less material than its peers, with most of the cryptos seeing double digit declines in the early part of the day.
