Crypto stocks rebound after $6.1 billion swoon as bitcoin churns

The turnaround for companies that have ridden Bitcoin’s coattails came as more retail investors gravitated toward even greater speculative plays like Dogecoin
Bitcoin rose 3% to $50,800, while a Bloomberg gauge of cryptocurrencies rallied 9.5% after the worst two-day slide since late February

Cryptocurrency-exposed stocks are recovering from a bloody four-day slide that had wiped out roughly $6.1 billion in value from a basket of companies tied to the fortunes of the volatile digital-asset world.

Marathon Digital Holdings Inc.’s 16% jump led the way on Friday, with the shares on pace to halt a nine day losing streak. The gains comes as Bitcoin climbs back from a slide of more than 15% on Thursday. Tesla Inc. Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk triggered the volatility late Wednesday by souring on the token’s energy demands. Microstrategy Inc. rose 4.5% on Friday, while as Mike Novogratz’s Galaxy Digital Holdings jumped 8.4% at 10:50 a.m. in New York.

The turnaround for companies that have ridden Bitcoin’s coattails came as more retail investors gravitated toward even greater speculative plays like Dogecoin. Bitcoin rose 3% to $50,800, while a Bloomberg gauge of cryptocurrencies rallied 9.5% after the worst two-day slide since late February.

Riot Blockchain Inc. jumped 20% for its largest gain in more than two months while Argo Blockchain Plc and On-Line Blockchain Plc stormed back in European trading. Coinbase Global Inc. was an out-lier. The largest U.S. crypto exchange fluctuated as strong quarterly income failed to excite traders.

Elon Musk’s stunning tweet late Wednesday triggered the free-fall for Bitcoin as the billionaire brought concerns surrounding the energy usage of the mining required for the currency to light and forced Wall Street to grapple with an uncertain outlook. Worries deepened after a Thursday Bloomberg News report that Binance Holdings Ltd. is under investigation by the Justice Department and Internal Revenue Service.
