The last seven days were relatively calm when it comes to Bitcoin as it marks a slight decrease of less than 1%. However, on June 15th, the price dropped to about $9,000, but it managed to recover very quickly and has traded in a narrow range since.
Overall retail interest in the asset seems to be decreasing as Bitcoin recorded the lowest number of searches in the past three months, data from Google Trends revealed.
The asset remains mostly correlated with legacy markets, but the latter appears to be catching some speed. The NASDAQ Composite index marked an all-time high on June 10th and is currently trading slightly below that. The same is true for Nasdaq 100. The S&P 500 is also very close to its former highs before the March declines as it trades only 5% below it.
On another note, the altcoin market remains relatively unchanged since last week. In fact, Bitcoin’s dominance, which indicates BTC’s overall share relative to the entire market, hasn’t changed.
Nevertheless, the week wasn’t short of exciting developments. Ubisoft released a new Ethereum-based collectible game to support UNICEF campaigns, while one of Japan’s largest banks, Nomura, partnered with Ledger to offer Bitcoin custody to its clients.
