Bitcoin has continued to gradually increase in value and even came close to challenging $11,000 earlier today. Adding some impressive gains from altcoins and the total market cap has increased by $10 billion since yesterday’s dip.
Bitcoin Closing Down On $11K?
As reported yesterday, the primary cryptocurrency hovered mostly between $10,650 and $10,750. Shortly after, however, BTC dipped and marked an intraday low of below $10,600.
The price decrease was shortlived, and BTC started increasing. Firstly, the asset returned to its familiar ground of about $10,750 before exploding to its daily high of $10,950. Since then, Bitcoin has retraced slightly to where it trades as of writing these lines.
Moving on, $11,000 remains as the most critical resistance in BTC’s way up. If conquered successfully, the cryptocurrency could head towards $11,200, $11,360, and $11,530 as possible next resistance levels.
Bitcoin’s increase could be related once again to the events with the US stock futures. The futures contracts on the S&P 500, the Nasdaq Composite, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average show about 0.3% gains in overnight futures trading.
Chainlink And Cardano On The Move
Ethereum and Ripple have remained relatively stagnant on a 24-hour scale, as both of them are slightly in the red. ETH trades at about $357, while XRP is at $0.243.
By increasing its value with 3.3%, Bitcoin Cash has widened the gap with Binance Coin (-0.3%) for settling in the 5th spot.
The most impressive gains from the top 10 come from Chainlink and Cardano. LINK has increased by 4.5% to nearly $11. ADA has surged by 7% to above $0,10. As a result, Cardano has overtaken Crypto.com Coin (0.7%) for the 9th position.
Double-digit price jumps are evident from a few lower-cap altcoins. Arweave leads with a 33% surge, Swipe SXP (27%), CyberVein (15%), and OMG Network (10%) follow.
In contrast, ABBC Coin has lost the most value (-18%). The Midas Touch Gold (-10%), Yearn.Finance (-9%), and DFI.Money (-9%) are next.
Nevertheless, the cryptocurrency market cap has increased to almost $350 billion after bottoming at $340 billion yesterday.
