Today is not shaping up to be a good day for cryptocurrencies, although that is not entirely surprising. Bitcoin has shown signs of weakness for some time now, and the dip is finally happening. Interestingly enough, it seems the PIVX value is not suffering from the same pressure, as that altcoin notes some very interesting gains.PIVX Price Bucks the Trend
Under traditional circumstances, a declining Bitcoin price will force altcoins to undergo very similar momentum. That has been the case for multiple years to date, and it seems the year 2018 will not be any different either. At the same time, more and more altcoins tend to decouple themselves from Bitcoin’s momentum as the years pass, and PIVX is an interesting example.
Over the past 24 hours, the PIVX price has shown a very interesting trend. Courtesy of a 6.5% increase in the USD department, the value has now risen to $1.15 again. It is a pretty interesting price point for PIVX, even though it is a very long way removed from the all-time high set in early 2018. If this trend keeps up, combined with the 11.5% increase over Bitcoin, PIVX may very well be the market to watch for the remainder of the day.
It would also seem the marketing machine for PIVX is in full effect. A recent tweet shows how the number of places accepting PIVX transactions is on the rise, further confirming a lot of retailers see merit in this particular altcoin. At the same time, one has to keep in mind how there may not necessarily be a lot of consumers spending PIVX on goods and services as of yet.#PIVX is all about real-world-use & providing ease of use for hodlers, investors, traders, & spenders.
