The most prominent cryptocurrency worldwide is Bitcoin (BTC) which has a market capitalisation of over $821 billion; Ethereum (ETH) at $353 billion and Tether (USDT) at $68 billion. Bitcoin hit $61,795.40 for the first time in six months on Friday, as hopes grew that US regulators would allow a futures-based Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF), a move likely to open the path to wider investment in digital assets.

The world’s biggest cryptocurrency rose 4.5 per cent to its highest level since April 17 and was last at $59,290. It has risen by more than half since September 20 and closing in on its record high of $64,895 hit in April 2021.
