The crypto market turned green today with massive price increases from Ethereum, Solana, Terra, and others. Bitcoin tapped a ten-day high.
After dipping below $37,000 yesterday, bitcoin went on the offensive and added more than $2,000 in hours to tap a new 10-day high. The alternative coins are also well in the green, with notable gains registered from Ethereum, Solana, Terra, and others.
The past several days have been highly volatile for the primary cryptocurrency. Just on Thursday, it dipped to $35,500 on two separate occasions before it started to regain some value and touched $38,000 during the weekend.
It even spiked to $38,600 as reported on Sunday, but the bears stepped in and didn’t allow any further gains. Just the opposite, they pushed the asset south, and BTC dumped below $38,000 hours later.
The situation worsened yesterday as bitcoin dropped by another $1,000. However, this is where the bulls came to play. In the following hours, BTC started to regain value rapidly and exceeded $38,000.
Moreover, it initiated another leg up that resulted in briefly touching $39,000, which became the highest price tag in about ten days. As of now, bitcoin has retraced slightly, but its market capitalization has shot up to well above $700 billion.
