Altcoins see a 35% bounce after Bitcoin reclaims $43,000

The sharp correction that threatened to pull Bitcoin (BTC) and altcoin prices back toward their swing lows appears to have dissipated now that Evergrande has informed investors that it intends to make an on-time payment on its debt. With global markets feeling reassured, major equities, Bitcoin and altcoins prices all saw a rebound at the market open.

After a swift drop below $40,000 on Sept. 21, Bitcoin (BTC) now trades above $43,300 and Ether (ETH) has reclaimed the $3,000 level. Altcoins have also seen a strong recovery, with many posting up to 15% gains at the time of writing.
