The cryptocurrency markets made some modest gains on Friday morning as most currencies showed a small increase or remained static. The only outlier, and by a spectacular margin, was Binance Coin (BNB) which rose by a staggering 11% to just over the $11 mark—a new high for 2019. Bitcoin Core (BTC) settled comfortably at the $3,800 level, although the increase here was minimal after a relatively quiet Thursday.
Post-Constantinople fork Ethereum (ETH) remained at the $136 mark or an increase of 0.5%, whilst Ripple (XRP) was well supported at the $0.32 level although this currency has been extremely staid for a very long time now and there does not seem to be any movement in either direction after a 90% decrease from its all-time high. Litecoin (LTC) was also up by around 2% to the $46 mark and could be primed for another push towards the $50 mark, which is psychologically significant although movements have been rather sparse of late.
Bitcoin SV (BSV) dropped below the $67 level on the back of another 1.5% decline, although the drop was not so pronounced here. Other currencies with relatively smaller market caps saw static movement, with Stellar Lumens (XLM) and Cardano (ADA) retaining the $0.084 and $0.043 price level respectively. Ethereum Classic (ETC) was down by a relatively insignificant 1% to the $4.22 level, whilst Bitcoin Cash (BCHABC) also dropped by 1% to the sub $130 mark. NEO was also down by 1% to the $8.81 mark as the China-based currency continued to lose ground.
Other coins remained at their same levels barring ICX, which also increased by a substantial 11% to the $0.31 mark, whilst TRON and BTT saw a decline, the former by just over 1% whilst the latter was down by 5%. VET, HOT and ONG where down by around 2% each, whilst WAVES and IOTA saw relatively modest increases of 2.4 and 2% respectively.

Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) is today the only Bitcoin project that follows the original Satoshi Nakamoto whitepaper, and that follows the original Satoshi protocol and design. BSV is the only public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin and will massively scale to become the world’s new money and enterprise blockchain.
