Crypto Markets Acquiring Weekly Gains
There has been a little action on the crypto markets lately, with most digital currencies either up or down by small percentages over the past 24 hours. In fact, it is a little under $1 billion in terms of market capitalization. For starters, Bitcoin is hovering at about $6.635 as of press time. Although it seems to experience an up and down scale, the leading digital asset still managed to keep up with this week’s gains.
Bitcoin’s weekly gains, amidst the little action, are up by 4 percent. Ethereum, on the other hand, is standing its ground at $467. It is under 1 percent in the past 24 hours and around 5.5 percent over the last seven days. As for the total market cap of all cryptocurrencies, it is reportedly around $266 billion.

Arbitrage Released By Crypto Trading Platform For Beginners
Arbitao was launched in November 2017. Since then, the London-based startup has introduced a platform specifically designed for arbitrage trading. The latter is a term that comes from professional trading, but it simply refers to the act of buying and selling the same asset. And from there, it makes profits at differing prices.
According to the company’s representatives, the platform is totally working and is even ready for launching. It is worth noting that initial coin offering or ICO projects do not necessarily have a working product – and probably will not have in the future. With Arbitao, however, it is totally different. The company is poised to deliver a product that is both working and tested before releasing it on the market.
