The crypto market is definitely busy today but not everything is going as traders would like. Part of the problem has to do with fake rumors pushing one crypto in particular higher before sending it back down today.

Let’s take a look at what’s happening with a few of the top cryptos today.

Cryptos Down Today

  • Bitcoin (CCC:BTC-USD) prices are slipping 3.8% over a 24-hour period on Monday afternoon. This comes with a trading volume of $39.1 billion over the last 24 hours and 68% buy trading activity.
  • Litecoin (CCC:LTC-USD) is falling 2.5% over a 24-hour period as of this writing. That comes with a trading volume of $7.4 billion over the last 24 hours and 59% buy trading activity. In the case of LTC, rumors of a deal with Walmart (NYSE:WMT) turned out to be fake and caused it to fall after a rally earlier today.
