Ethereum (ETH) Spikes 5% to 3-Month Highs: Bitcoin Consolidation Continues (Market Watch)
Following the latest dump below $47,000, bitcoin has actually regrouped and added more than $1,000 in value. Nevertheless, some alternative coins continue to outperform BTC, including SOL, with its latest record, and ETH, which pumped by 5% in a day.
Another Day Another SOL Record; ETH Jumps 5%
While most altcoins have been stalling lately, Solana has taken the spotlight all for itself. SOL’s performance in the past few weeks has been nothing short of spectacular.
Consecutive all-time highs and breaking above certain milestones is something the cryptocurrency community has grown accustomed to. The 24 hours didn’t disappoint. After conquering $100 yesterday, it only kept climbing and tapped $120 for the latest record.
Ethereum has also performed well since yesterday as it added more than 6% of value and came close to $3,400.
Polkadot (11%) and Uniswap (6.5%) are also well in the green, while Cardano, Binance Coin, Dogecoin, and Bitcoin Cash have marked minor losses.
Celo is the most significant gainer yet again, with a 70% surge to $7. This comes after a recent announcement about a $100 million adoption initiative spearheaded by the project.
More gains are evident from Arweave (35%), Harmony (45%), Cosmos (25%), Fantom (21%), Kusama (11%), Elrond (11%), and Amp (10%).
Consequently, the cumulative market cap has added around $50 billion in a day and is just shy of $2.1 trillion.
Bitcoin Nears $48K Again
While some of the alternative coins are charting fresh records, the primary cryptocurrency has struggled lately. It failed to remain above $49,000 during the weekend, and the bears took advantage to push it south again.
This resulted in breaking below $48,000 and $47,000 hours ago. In fact, BTC went as low as $46,730 (on Bitstamp) earlier today.
Since then, though, the situation changed to a large extent, and bitcoin spiked by more than $1,000. As a result, it came close to $48,000, but so far has failed to overcome it.
Its market capitalization is still stuck at $900 billion, but the dominance over the altcoins keeps decreasing and is below 43% as of writing these lines.Source
