New Delhi: Crypto markets remained under pressure as investors watched the growing tension between Russia and Ukraine.

Barring the dollar pegged stablecoins and Terra, all of the top digital tokens were trading lower on Monday. Avalanche tumbled 6 per cent, followed by a 4 per cent fall in Dogecoin, Shiba Inu and XRP each.
