Bitcoin prices have continued their slip despite hints of recovery on Thursday morning. Bitcoin is currently trading at $60,879 (roughly Rs. 45.2 lakh) on Indian exchange CoinSwitch Kuber while global exchanges like CoinMarketCap value the most popular cryptocurrency at $55,950 (roughly Rs. 41.5 lakh). Talking percentages, the past 24 hours have seen Bitcoin slide 7.55 percent, dipping well below the $60,000 (roughly Rs. 44.7 lakh) mark that it's been hovering around for the past few days. This also marks the cryptocurrency's lowest valuation in over a month, a stark contrast from the $68,990 (roughly Rs. 51.18 lakh) all-time high achieved last week.

Bitcoin's struggles appear to have percolated to every other crypto asset too, as the global crypto market capitalisation saw a 5 percent dip overall. Ether dropped 6.84 percent over the past 24 hours to be valued at $4,406 (roughly Rs. 3.27 lakh) on CoinSwitch Kuber while values on global exchanges see an average dip of 5.28 percent to $4,042 (roughly Rs. 3 lakh). Gadgets 360's cryptocurrency price tracker shows that the Ethereum-based cryptocurrency has seen a correction of more than 15 percent since its November 10 all-time high of $4,870 (roughly Rs. 3.61 lakh).

“The crypto market witnessed a volatile 24 hours as BTC dropped towards the $57,000 [roughly Rs. 42.3 lakh]. The largest altcoin, Ether, moved closer to the $4000 [roughly Rs. 2.96 lakh] mark. All of the top 30 cryptos, barring the stablecoins, ended in red. With the weekend approaching, the coming 24 hours would likely remain volatile,” states Edul Patel, CEO and co-founder of AI-driven crypto investment platform, Mudrex.

The crypto market tracker certainly isn't a pleasant sight today as red dominates the 24-hour change tab. Cardano, Polygon, Ripple, Polkadot, and Tether saw big slips.

Meme coins Dogecoin and Shiba Inu did show minor signs of recovery mid-week but saw big dips through Thursday. While DOGE is currently trading at $0.23 (roughly Rs. 17.80) down by 9.21 percent in the past 24 hours, Shiba Inu is valued at $0.000042 (roughly Rs. 0.003149), down a whopping 11.95 percent.

On Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said all democratic nations must work together to ensure cryptocurrency “does not end up in wrong hands, which can spoil our youth” during a keynote address. PM Modi's first public comments on the topic of cryptocurrencies happened after he convened a high-level meeting with market players last week, held to discuss issues related to crypto regulation and to hear concerns over the current state of affairs in the unregulated crypto market in India.

The government aims to introduce and pass a cryptocurrency law in the parliamentary session that begins this month.

Closer home, the Chinese government isn't letting up any pressure on its internal crackdown on crypto as popular cryptocurrency news outlets now appear to have begun suspending operations. Crypto outlets ChainNews and Odaily have both become inaccessible over the past few days and neither of the outlets have stated a reason. Instead, both outlets have continued their activity on Twitter and Telegram, apps that are banned in China.

Redmi Note 11T 5G Specifications Teased Ahead of India Launch

Redmi Note 11T 5G India launch is a few days away. But ahead of its formal announcement, Redmi parent Xiaomi has teased the Redmi Note 11T 5G specifications. Xiaomi India Managing Director and Global Vice President Manu Kumar Jain on Monday tweeted to highlight that Redmi Note 11T 5G will be the first Redmi phone to come with a 6nm chipset. Although the exact details are yet to be announced, the chip could be the MediaTek Dimensity 810 — if we believe some recent rumours. Redmi India also announced that it conducted 5G trials for the Redmi Note 11T 5G by tying up with Reliance Jio.

Jain tweeted to emphasise on the presence of a MediaTek Dimensity SoC on the Redmi Note 11T 5G. He also claimed that the new model will be Redmi's fastest 5G phone.

The Redmi Note 11T 5G is speculated to be an Indian variant of the regular Redmi Note 11 that was launched in China last month. It is, therefore, likely that the new phone will have the MediaTek Dimensity 810 SoC that is also powering the Redmi Note 11.

Alongside Xiaomi, Amazon has started teasing the Redmi Note 11T 5G launch in India through a dedicated microsite. This indicates the availability of new Redmi phone through the online marketplace — in addition to Mi.com.

Redmi additionally announced its partnership with Jio for testing 5G connectivity on the Redmi Note 11T 5G.

“To verify the capability and performance of their upcoming device, the two companies conducted a 5G standalone lab trial, and tested the device through various scenarios, thereby ensuring enhanced 5G end-user experiences,” the company said.

The Redmi Note 11T 5G is confirmed to have seven bands including SA: n1/ n3/ n5/n8/ n28/ n40/ n78 and NSA: n1/n3/n40/n78. However, exact performance results of the phone are yet to be revealed.

Xiaomi is launching the Redmi Note 11T 5G in India on November 30.
