Cryptocurrency prices edged higher on Friday, but many remained sharply lower over the week after a bruising seven days.

Cryptocurrencies rise, but are lower over the last seven trading sessions

While the news this week has been generally positive, with both India and South Korea looking a little more relaxed on their, hitherto, strict cryptocurrency policy, crypto prices have taken a beating.

On Friday, however, most of the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market capitalisation were a little higher. Eos, which has lost the most this week, was up the most on the day.
