Total market capitalization slipped from $270 billion at the beginning of the day to $263 billion at press time. Daily trade volume also tumbled from $52 billion to $49 billion.

Privacy-focused altcoin Monero (XMR) is seeing the biggest losses among top-20 coins by market cap, down nearly 5% over the past 24 hours.

Yesterday, the Governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney said that a digital currency like Facebook’s not-yet-launched cryptocurrency Libra could replace the United States dollar as the world’s reserve currency. Anthony Pompliano, founder of crypto investment firm Morgan Creek Digital Assets, pointed out that the supportive stance to Libra from the British regulator and central bank indicates the rapid adoption of crypto. He wrote on Twitter:

“It only took 10 years for central bankers to go from unaware of digital currencies to calling for one as the global reserve currency. This is moving much faster than almost anyone expected.”

Commenting on Carney’s recent call for a global monetary system to replace the U.S. dollar, crypto and blockchain expert Joseph Young noted that it is a “very interesting time for bitcoin and gold” as the currency war is intensifying alongside rising geopolitical risks. Young added that while Bitcoin’s price short term trend seems to be a minor downtrend, there is a chance that more investors will take a better look at alternative stores of value amid the foreign exchange wars.
