The cryptocurrency market was particularly volatile in the last few weeks. Bitcoin SV stands tall today with a serious increase of over 20% in the past 24 hours alone. At the time of this writing, BSV trades at around $307.
BSV has been on a rollercoaster throughout the past seven days. On January 15th, it reached a new all-time high of $413. At that time, news broke that Wright doesn’t have access to the private keys needed to access 1.1 million bitcoins, part of the popular Tulip Trusts. Almost immediately after that, BSV lost about 15% of its value, dropping down to as low as $256.
Despite that, it appears that Bitcoin SV’s positive trend continues. It has been one of the most impressive performers since the start of the year. BSV entered 2020 at $97 and, in less than three weeks, has skyrocketed with 216%.
The entire market has been on the move in the past couple of days. Bitcoin lost $700 yesterday, but since then, it has stabilized at around $8,650-$8,700, which serves as a significant support level. Bitcoin’s dominance also took a hit and was reduced to 66.1%. This suggests that altcoins managed to break new grounds. In general, almost all of the top 20 cryptocurrencies are marking slight increases, as the entire market sees green as the predominant color.
Ethereum is at $166, with almost no movements in the last 24 hours. The same could be said about XRP, currently trading at $0.231.
Bitcoin Cash ($340) and Litecoin ($58) show around 2% gains. Stellar (XLM) and Cardano (ADA) note 3% increases, which positions them at 10th and 11th place by means of total market capitalization.
Total Market Cap: $238 B | Bitcoin Market Cap: $157 B | Bitcoin Dominance: 66.1%
