World’s largest cryptocurrency bitcoin was trading marginally higher today. On Coinmarketcap, the price of bitcoin rose 0.83% to $46,633. Market cap of the cryptocurrency reached $876.982 billion. Currently, the global crypto market cap stands at $2.12 trillion.

Other cryptocurrencies were also trading on a mixed note today. Ethereum fell 1.68% to $3,445 and Dogecoin was trading 0.50% lower at $0.2552.

In late July, Elon Musk said Tesla was “most likely” to start accepting bitcoin as payment again. The comment helped the cryptocurrency race past the $30,000 level. The electric carmaker said in May that it would no longer accept the cryptocurrency for purchases.
