Bullish pattern still in play for BTC heading into the weekend

Today’s edition of OKEx Insights’ Crypto Market Daily covers Bitcoin, Ethereum, altcoins and DeFi.

For the third day in a row, the price of Bitcoin ( BTC) is trading just above 19,400 USDT on OKEx — with virtually no change in price since this time yesterday. Some altcoins have used this breather to their advantage, though there hasn’t been a particularly noteworthy surge in the market, as a whole.

The total cryptocurrency market capitalization has increased by roughly $3 billion, as per data from CoinGecko. BTC dominance, meanwhile, declined by 0.2%.

Stocks in the United States pulled back following confusion over the eventual rollout of COVID-19 vaccines. The Nasdaq Composite, however, closed at a new all-time high — something the S&P 500 also flirted with before news of supply chain problems relating to Pfizer Inc.’s coronavirus vaccine rejected the benchmark index. Threats of further lockdown restrictions in some states, such as California, are also presenting more complications to the already ravaged “real economy.”

Top altcoin gainers and losers

  • KCASH/USDT +59.27%
  • QUN/USDT +39.63%
  • OM/USDT +33.43%
  • LMCH/USDT -7.59%
  • DCR/USDT -8.46%
  • GTO/USDT -9.30%

Once again, the top performers on OKEx over the past 24 hours have experienced larger moves than the worst performers — though more significantly than yesterday. KCASH is up nearly 60% while QUN is pushing 40%.
