Biggest cryptocurrency gains in 2018 so far

The cryptocurrency has lost more than $200 since then and its price is now hovering around $1,050 down almost 10% from yesterday's close of $1,153.17.

It refers to the value of the entire digital currency in circulation and is worked out by multiplying the supply of the virtual coin by the price per unit.

Schultz's second wife, Leslie Lester, who also works as the company's executive director, also volunteered to step down. The actresses are seeking a total of $4.25 million in damages from Soulpepper, and $3.6 million from Schultz.

Ethereum and ripple have been jostling for the second spot, and that has changed depending on price. However, Bitcoin's entry into the mainstream has coincided with a sharp dip in its price. At roughly 04:54 GMT, the digital coin hit an all-time record of $1,266.93, but that also marked the end of its latest advance.

Last week, the USA derivatives regulator, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, said it would assess the "self-certification" regime that allowed the CBOE and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange to launch Bitcoin futures after critics said it should have consulted the market.

Ripple has slowed down its rise, following good gains previous year, while Bitcoin Cash is slightly down.
