The flag ship crypto after a long consolidation and many fakeouts finally broke above $45K and rallied just shy of $50K. Following suit are most of altcoins, as they print new gains too. The crypto market is merry and trading in green after 2 gloomy months.
In a single day, the total market capitalization increased by $100 billion, bringing it to little under $1.8 trillion. This is the highest level for the metric since late May.
For the most part, bitcoin’s price has been on a rise since the middle of the week. It quickly recovered thousands of dollars, reaching $40,000 on Thursday.
Even a though a retracement followed right after bringing BTC back to $37K, the token picked up pace and started an uptrend again.
Bitcoin regained $40,000, and continued to rise this time. The rally resulted in a price of $44,000 the highest level in nearly three months – since the mid-May meltdown.
The token has now retraced a few hundred dollars, but it is still trading above $43,000. As a result, for the first time in months, its market value has surpassed $800 billion.
Ethereum’s rise has been even more remarkable this week. The price of ETH has increased by more than 20% since last weekend, possibly due to the buzz around the London Hard Fork, which took place earlier this week.
The leader of alts rallied to as high as $3000 for the first time since mid may. It even hit $3163 overnight. However it has now retraced back to $3110 steering clear of the support at $3K.
As the flagship crypto surged, the altcoins too have followed a similar trajectory.
Binance Coin, Cardano, Ripple, Chainlink, Bitcoin Cash, and Litecoin have all seen comparable increases of roughly 4%. In addition, Dogecoin (up 6%), Uniswap (up 7%), and Polkadot (up 9%) have all seen significant increases
With a 35% increase to $55, ICP is the most notable gainer from the top 100. More members of the double-digit price growth club include Qtum (28%), Ravencoin (22%), Holo (22%), Klaytn (15%), Filecoin (13%), and VeChain (12%).
