After the massive turbulence and the price declines that BTC experienced, the past week brought some recovery for the asset, and just last Sunday, it crashed to an 18-month low of $17,500. Monday started off well as the cryptocurrency bounced off and hit $20,000 but then failed to reclaim the level at first and did it a few days later.
BTC found itself above $21,500 which is a weekly high as the bulls tried to regain control of the market. BTC was rejected there and dropped below $20,000 after the FED Chair’s latest affirmation about the rise of the interest rates. Since then, the asset reclaimed some value and came closer to $21,500 and once again its market cap remained near $400 billion but the dominance over the altcoins is under 42.5%. The alternative coins went through a similar phase but they remain calm on a daily scale.
Ethereum dumped from over $2000 to $900 in one week but since then, ETH reclaimed about $300 of value and trades above $1200. BNB sits near $240 after a smaller daily retracement but similar price movements are evident from Solana, DOT, Tron, Avalanche, and Ripple. In contrast, Cardano and DOGE are up by 3% in one day to above $0.5 and from the mid-cap and lower cap altcoins, LTC and FTT increased by 4%. More gains came from Apecoin as well as MANA but the cumulative crypto market cap closes at $1 trillion and increased by $20 billion in one day.
