Bitcoin and Ethereum price gave up previous gains; Axie Infinity jumps 30%

Major cryptocurrency Bitcoin gave up most of its gains on Dec. 6, after shedding nearly 2% to trade at the €16 level. Most selling trends in the crypto market could be associated with a stronger US dollar. Interest rate speculation increased on Monday after a US services index indicated the economy was holding steady.

Following news of an unexpected rise in the Institute for Supply Management's services gauge in November, the Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index rose 0,8%, ending a four-day losing streak.

Ethereum, the second most valuable cryptocurrency, lost ground and slid below the €1,300 psychological trading levels.
