Cryptos Rise Modestly on Thanksgiving as the Industry Recovers

The major cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin and Ethereum, registered modest gains on Thanksgiving Day as the industry appeared to recover from the fallout linked to the collapse of Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX and its associated firms. The bearish pressure of this collapse was threatening to topple the fragile crypto sector that was already reeling from the “crypto winter” experienced earlier this year. Bitcoin gained approximately 1.5% on Thanksgiving to trade at a little more than $16,600. However, the weekly stats indicate that BTC is still down from the highs it had registered in prior weeks.

Blockchain Technology Is Expanding Possibilities of Fractional Investing

At the simplest level, fractional investing allows investors to buy and own a fraction of a company’s share. When you buy shares on stock exchanges, you are buying a small part of a company whose shares are listed. With fractional investing, you get ownership of less than one share of that company. New technologies such as blockchain technology are widening the possibilities presented by fractional investing. For example, the Singapore-based ADDX platform makes it possible for investors to buy a stake in a diverse range of assets for as little as $5,000 as the minimum one can have to join…
