Explore NowThe cryptocurrency markets were trading in the red on Thursday amid concerns over US debt ceiling talks as a critical deadline nears without an agreement. Bitcoin (BTC) fell 1.88% to $26,241, whereas Ethereum (ETH) was below the $1,800 level. BTC volume in the last 24 hours stood at approximately $16.19 billion, rising 30.23% in the last 24 hours.

Other top crypto tokens were also trading lower on Thursday. Litecoin declined nearly 4%. Cardano, BNB, Polkadot and Shiba Inu were also trading lower.
