Meanwhile, the cryptocurrency market is seeing the return of some gains after a bloodbath earlier in the week.
As of press time, global cryptocurrency market capitalization touched $1.28 trillion, a gain of 2.04% over 24 hours.
Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies plunged Monday after China’s central bank instructed the country’s major financial institutions to restrict services for cryptocurrency transactions.
The People’s Bank of China action comes after an earlier crackdown on mining operations by authorities in China’s Sichuan province.
A major Chinese miner has said that it has moved its rigs to Kazakhstan after its power supply was snapped by a Sichuan utility.
