Solana's Stablecoin Highs, GameStop's NFT Exit, and China's Secret Crypto Trade

As the business week commenced in Asia, Bitcoin (BTC) saw a significant shift in its value, descending to a low of $41,226. At the time of this writing, it is trading at $41,386, marking a slight decline of 0.64% in the last 24 hours. Across the broader cryptocurrency landscape, stability was the norm, with most of the top ten digital currencies registering changes within a 1% margin. Dogecoin (DOGE), however, stood out with its notable price volatility. This surge in DOGE’s price came on the heels of the launch of an ‘XPayments’ official account on the X platform, an event that sparked considerable discussion and speculation in the cryptocurrency community.
