Latest news about Bitcoin and all cryptocurrencies. Your daily crypto news habit.
Shortly after dipping below $41,000, bitcoin went on the offensive once again and briefly exceeded $43,000. The altcoins are also in the green today, with ADA nearing $1 and Ethereum touching $3,000.
Bitcoin’s 20-Day High
CryptoPotato reported yesterday bitcoin’s brief retracement that drove the asset from $42,500 to under $41,000. This came after several relatively positive trading days in which the cryptocurrency reclaimed $40,000 following a week, standing below that coveted level.
However, this price dip was somewhat short-lived. The BTC bulls regained control over the market and pushed it north again. This time, the primary digital asset added more than $2,000 in hours and spiked to over $43,000.
As such, BTC painted its highest price tag since March 3rd. As of now, bitcoin has lost some ground and stands around $42,500.
Nevertheless, its market capitalization has reclaimed the coveted $800 billion mark, and its dominance over the alternative coins has gone to 42%.

Alts in Green: ETH at $3K
The alternative coins have largely mimicked BTC’s performance as of late, and most have turned green today.
Ethereum is among the prime examples. The second-largest crypto tried its hand at $3,000 a few times in the past few days but to no avail. Yesterday’s market correction pushed ETH south to just over $2,800. Since then, though, the situation changed, and the asset jumped to $3,000, where it’s situated now as well.
Binance Coin has increased by over 3% in a day and trades above $400. Ripple, Solana, Polkadot, Dogecoin, and Shiba Inu have all charted similar gains.
Ethereum Classic is once again among the best performers, with a notable 14% surge to $44. Bitcoin Cash, Algorand, and EGLD are also well in the green.
The cumulative market cap of all crypto assets is up by $60 billion in a day and has reclaimed the $1.9 trillion level.
