Bitcoin Reclaims $43K as Binance Coin Spikes 8% (Market Watch)

Bitcoin has reacted well to the latest price drop below $41,000 and quickly spiked above $43,000. Most alternative coins continue with indecisive moves, with Binance Coin being today’s exception. BNB has increased by more than 8% to above $370.

Bitcoin Reclaims $43K

The enhanced volatility that bitcoin faced in the past several days continued yesterday as well. CryptoPotato reported when the cryptocurrency fell below $41,000 for the second time in just a few days, but the bulls drove it upwards by a few thousand dollars almost immediately.

However, the pain wasn’t over yet as another price drop transpired, which pushed it down to a new low of $40,800 (on Bitstamp). The situation changed somewhat rapidly again, and this time BTC went higher.

In just a matter of hours, bitcoin added roughly $3,000 of value and tapped an intraday high of $43,800. As of now, though, it has retraced by several hundred dollars and stands around $43,000.

As a result, bitcoin’s market capitalization has risen above $800 billion, while the dominance over the alternative coins has increased to just under 43%.

BNB Sees an 8% Increase

Most alternative coins have failed to produce any significant gains in the past few days. Ethereum has been one of the biggest losers as it had dropped from above $3,100 to $2,900, where it stood for a while. In the past 24 hours, ETH went on a run and surged above $3,000, but as of now has retraced below that level once more.

Cardano continues to decline in value with another 2% dip. As a result, ADA stands beneath $2.1. Ripple, Solana, Polkadot, Dogecoin, Avalanche, and Terra have remained relatively calm since yesterday.

Binance Coin has outperformed all larger-cap alts with an 8% increase. Consequently, BNB has reached a multi-day high above $370. This comes just hours after the leading crypto exchange announced the latest project to go live on its Binance Launchpad.

OMG Network is the only double-digit gainer in the past 24 hours with a 13% increase, followed by LEO with a 9% surge.

Nevertheless, the crypto market cap has added around $40 billion and currently stands above $1.9 trillion.
