Ethereum (ETH-USD), the second-largest digital asset, was trading up 3.3% to $2,079, after reaching a day’s high of $2,124, the highest intraday price since May 17.

Ethereum has outperformed Bitcoin over the past seven days, adding more than 12%, compared with an 8% gain for the most popular cryptocurrency.

BNB (BNB-USD), the fourth-largest digital asset, increased by 1%, and XRP (XRP-USD), the sixth-largest, advanced by 1.7%. Cardano (ADA-USD), Dogecoin (DOGE-USD), and Polygon (MATIC-USD) rose 2.2%, 1.3%, and 2.2%, respectively.

The cryptocurrency industry’s global market capitalization increased by 0.7% to $1.27 trillion. Twitter is partnering with the trading platform eToro to make it easier for its users to trade cryptocurrencies and stocks.

The “$cashtags” feature will display real-time price data. Users will be able to click on a “view on eToro” button to buy or sell cryptocurrencies or stocks.

This collaboration reflects, in part, Twitter users’ interest in the financial markets and cryptocurrencies – a development that has been noted to be part of the transformation of Twitter initiated by Elon Musk.

Dogecoin, which is considered the Twitter CEO’s favourite cryptocurrency, rose more than 5% in the minutes following the announcement. #Bitcoin Tests $31K as Top Cryptocurrencies Rally
