Our latest article, Cryptocurrency News April 2018, is about the recovery of cryptocurrencies after a long-running low price trend and a recent news about Google’s decision on banning the crypto mining extensions. Led by Bitcoin, values of most cryptocurrencies raised with the beginning of the month.
Nearly all cryptocurrencies have gained value with the beginning of April. When we look at last week’s trends in prices, we see that only Bytom and Tether lost a small amount of value. All the other coins were in an increasing trend, according to CoinMarketCap. After hitting the lowest prices in 2018, some coins such as Ripple and Ethereum is in a recovery trend. For example, Ripple rose to $0.54 after hitting an all-time low of $0.49. On the other hand, the value of a few coins has dropped a little. Bytom, for instance, has lost around 2 percent over the last week. However, the overall comeback by the majority of coins has been welcomed by the miners.
Moreover, in a recent news, Google has banned all extensions related to crypto mining from Chrome Web Store. This is done because most of the crypto mining extensions in the store did not comply with Google’s rules. Google has set up some rules about crypto mining programs working on the Chrome, including informing the user about crypto mining activity. Also, the extensions on the store had to show that the script’s only purpose is mining. Since most of the crypto mining scripts on the store did not comply with the regulations, Google decided to ban all the crypto mining extensions until a further notice. Now, some users are turning to other browsers until Chrome Web Store gets the extensions back.
April started with a positive view of prices of most of the coins. We are looking forward to seeing a more confident future for the crypto mining.
