Cryptocurrencies rise as mining picks up speed

Major cryptocurrencies traded with gains on Saturday, with Bitcoin adding 2.5%. Digital currency mining has been on the rise lately and has now compensated for the significant drop in miners after China's crackdown, according to a report by CNBC. China moved to shut down its network of miners in May as it sought to limit energy use. However, reports allege a number of miners have continued to work illegally, while other countries, including the United States, have increased cryptocurrency mining.

Bitcoin grew by 2.49% at 00:58 am ET, selling for $48,350, while Ether jumped 3.37% at the same time and went for $4,031
