Bitcoin has climbed back above $8,400 as several altcoin markets see green again. Here are your latest cryptocurrency news and prices.

After several days of downward price consolidation, Bitcoins price has climbed back above a key support at $8,400 as several altcoin markets also enjoy a day in the green. Here are your latest cryptocurrency news and prices.

By the end of the day on Monday 30 September Bitcoins price had managed a stellar 8% rally from its low to around $8,325, which was near a 3.5% gain for the day.

Bitcoin closed last week on a bearish note, breaking and closing below its 20-week moving average (WMA) for the first time since an earlier break this year in March. However, this close was notable as it is something that had not happened back in 2016/2017 and thus is commonly seen as a bearish indicator on the weekly chart.

Litecoin is widely considered the little brother to Bitcoin, and is one of the internets favourite cryptocurrencies, with one of the highest market capitalisations of any coin. This well-established coin is supported by dozens of Litecoin casino websites and Litecoin sportsbooks, supporting everything from traditional table games like roulette and slots, to sports betting.

Tether the controversial stablecoin company linked to Bitfinex has just minted an additional 20 million USDT. Many industry commentators believe that the company is responsible for artificially inflating the price of Bitcoin.

The news comes just one week after a similar mint. Last Tuesday, the firm reportedly added an additional 15 million USDT immediately following Bitcoins sudden crash to below $10,000. BeInCrypto reported on the mint at the time.

The company behind EOS, Block.One has to pay $24 million in penalties for allegedly conducting an unregistered sale of a security as per an announcement from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

The SEC, in a press release published yesterday, stated that Block.Oneraised the equivalent of several billion dollarsover the period of a year via an unregistered initial coin offering (ICO). Notably, a grand total of $4.1 billion was raised. Block.One subsequently agreed to settle the charges as per a statement from the SEC.

Binance Coin (BNB) was previously thought by many to be the ultimate investment token, since Binance seemed to be relentlessly pumping out new products that would improve the utility of the token over time.

However, despite starting the year extremely strong, Binance Coin has struggled to maintain momentum in recent months as investor faith waned.

Bitcoin SV has been trading near the eighty-five ($85) dollars mark for quite some time now and while the price kept its consolidation routine, both the bulls and the bears decided that theyll be making moves when a new trend starts to form. If the traders somehow manage to rag the price back to ninety ($90) dollars, then they wont have to worry about the psychological barrier at one hundred dollars ($100) that would have otherwise thwarted their plans towards a successful bull run. A rebound will initiate with the price reaching the ninety ($90) dollars mark.

Contrary to what most people may think, Stellar is a digital asset which effectively has an inflation mechanism. As it is not a traditional cryptocurrency like Bitcoin or Ethereum, having such a mechanism does make a fair bit of sense. It is a project dedicated to streamlining and disrupting traditional finance, an industry where inflation is almost a must to survive in the long term. However, there have been people who genuinely oppose this mechanism in Stellar, and they have been quite vocal about it.
