Ethereum ETH/USD, the second-biggest cryptocurrency, meanwhile, surged back above the $1,600 level on Thursday.

Lido DAO LDO/USD was the top gainer over the prior 24 hours, while Pax Dollar USDP/USD recorded the biggest decline.

At the time of writing, the global cryptocurrency market capitalization increased to $1.06 trillion, notching a 24-hour surge of about 8.5%. BTC was trading higher by around 1.8% to $23,195, while ETH climbed around 2.8% to $1,646.00 on Thursday.
