USDC ETH SHIB Altcoin News
  • The top trending coins are USDC, SHIB, and ETH. 
  • Ethereum (ETH) price soared about 4.5% in a day.

Since heightened volatility during pre-market hours on Monday, significant bank stocks have been suspended in the wake of Silicon Valley Bank’s demise. That led equities to witness a crucial selloff. Also, the shares of First Republic Bank dropped by more than 60% due to a cascading effect from the second-largest bank in the U.S.

As a result of the stress over the US banking industry, the global cryptocurrency market is again moving in a “Bull Market” direction. At the time of writing, the global crypto market cap surged over 5.30% in the last 24 hours. 

Let’s take a glance at the top trending cryptocurrencies of the day, as per CoinMarketCap.


Crypto’s second-largest stablecoin USDC buzzed social media by rebounding its 1 dollar peg after being depegged from its standard $1 to as low as $0.87 on 11th March. This price change might have been a result of the Circle, which is behind the stablecoin announcing that it would cover any of its USDC reserves. At the time of writing, USDC traded at $0.9992, which increased around 0.64% in a day. But its market cap of $39 billion is down by 3%.
