Investing.com – While the wave of losses, or correction as some like to call it, widened during Sunday’s trading in the cryptocurrency market, one coin, although not as large as the largest, managed to rise alone among the billion coins.
Digital currencies extended their losses amid weak trading today, Sunday, to reach more than 50 billion dollars, bringing the market value down from 2.152 trillion to less than 2.1 trillion dollars.
Algorand the best
The Algorand coin managed to register the only rise among the top 20 cryptocurrencies with the deviation of the performance of the currencies pegged to the dollar such as Binance USD BUSD, USD Coin USDC, Tether USDT.
Algorand increased during those moments by about 3% to exceed the levels of $2, while rising by more than 85% in thirty days and by more than 405% since the beginning of the year.
Algorand is trading near its all-time high, which was seen during the September 12 session at $2.37.
The market capitalization of Algorand, which comes in the 18th place among cryptocurrencies by market capitalization, is about $10.8 billion.
SkyBridge Capital has announced that it has secured $100 million for its Algorand Fund.
A few days ago, Anthony Scaramucci’s SkyBridge Capital announced at the annual SALT conference that it had applied for a crypto-linked exchange-traded fund (ETF) to expand its offering.
The SkyBridge Capital announcement also included a plan to start the Algorand Fund up to a maximum of $250 million.
Algorand is a decentralized, blockchain-based network that is self-sustaining and supports a wide range of applications.
The company’s founder, Anthony Scaramucci, who is also a former Whitehouse communications director, revealed in an interview with CNBC that he had raised $100 million for the recently announced Algorand Fund.
Anthony Scaramucci added: “His investment in his company is in excess of $700 million, and it will continue to be more than that.”
SkyBridge Capital became the latest company to introduce a crypto-focused exchange-traded fund (ETF).
The said ETF, First Trust SkyBridge Crypto Industry and Digital Economy ETF will not be directly exposed to cryptocurrencies, as they will invest about 80% of their portfolio in companies that interact with cryptocurrencies directly.
