After recovering from the jolt of China's move of banning all cryptocurrency transactions, the cryptocurrency market witnessed a sell-off as almost all the cryptocurrencies declined in the last 24 hours.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin was down by about five per cent, Ether declined by 6.6 per cent and the market was trading in the red. The decline in prices of cryptocurrencies could be due to Virgil Griffith, who has pleaded guilty to helping North Korea avoid US sanctions by using blockchain technology.
Here is why RAD is up between Virgil Griffith guilty pleas
Mr Griffith, the researcher of Ethereum Foundation was arrested in 2019 for attending the Pyongyong blockchain conference. The US authorities have alleged that the researcher has helped North Korea to deploy blockchain technology and sidestep the sanctions.
The prosecutors have claimed that his trip to North Korea was not approved by America and his presentation at Pyongyong was equivalent to giving services to the isolated country. Mr Griffith's trial was set to begin on September 27, however, he pleaded guilty to aiding North Korea.
Amid the falling prices, one cryptocurrency has stood out and it is gaining the attention of crypto traders.
