New Delhi: Major cryptocurrencies continued to fall on Monday thanks to inflationary worries, triggered by the Russia-Ukraine war. The pain in altcoins was even more severe.

The decline began as bad news throughout last week quashed even the faintest hopes of a resolution. Russian forces pounded other major Ukrainian cities with artillery and rocket fire.

All of the top digital tokens were bleeding, with Terra down more than 10 per cent, followed by an 8 per cent fall in Solana 
and Avalanche each. Cardano, XRP and Ethereum shed up to 6 per cent. 

The global cryptocurrency market cap today declined to $1.71 trillion, dropping more than 4 per cent in the last 24 hours. Total cryptocurrency trading volume jumped more than 25 per cent to $67.11 billion.
