Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC): The apex cryptocurrency is seeing the highest interest on the microblogging platform. Bitcoin traded 2.04% higher at $45,783.25 over the past 24 hours. BTC is down 30.2% from its all-time high.
MicroStrategy Inc. (MSTR), the Michael Saylor-led business intelligence firm and the largest corporate holder of Bitcoin, said in a regulatory filing on Monday that it has acquired another 5,050 more BTC for about $242.9 million.
Litecoin (CRYPTO: LTC): Litecoin, a fork of BTC, is the second-most discussed cryptocurrency on Twitter. The altcoin traded almost 2.8% higher at $179.19 over 24 hours at press time but is down 56.6% from its all-time high.
Litecoin surged on Monday after a fake press release circulated that retail giant Walmart Inc. (NYSE:WMT) has formed a partnership with the cryptocurrency. The fake news was also reported by mainstream news outlets.
Walmart later denied the news, while the Litecoin Foundation acknowledged that one of its employees retweeted the fake announcement.
