The primary cryptocurrency continues its recovery by reaching $37,000. Bitcoin’s dominance over the market has also increased by a few percentages in days, even though the altcoins have also charted decent gains.
Bitcoin’s Dominance Rises to 43%
After failing to break above $37,000 a few days ago, BTC started to retrace heavily. In a matter of hours, it lost over $6,000 of value and bottomed at $31,000 – this became the lowest price tag in three weeks.
However, the bulls stepped up at that point and recovered a few thousand dollars, as reported yesterday. The situation has further improved in the past 24 hours, as bitcoin is up by another 8% to just shy of $37,000. Just a few hours ago, BTC reached a new five-day high of $37,600 but retraced slightly.
By increasing to this level, BTC’s market capitalization has neared $700 billion once again. Furthermore, the asset’s market dominance is up by 1% in a day and 2% in two days to 43%.
These positive developments may be a surprise to some extent as China took additional actions against the crypto industry yesterday. Nevertheless, El Salvador became the first country to rule in favor of making BTC a legal tender within its borders, which may have caused the price boost.
Alts Recover; ETH Above $2,500
The alternative coins also suffered severely two days ago during the latest crash. However, similarly to their leader, they have recovered most losses.
Ethereum bottomed at $2,300 but has jumped by more than $200 since then and currently stands well above $2,500 now. Binance Coin dumped to $320 on Tuesday. Nevertheless, BNB increased to $380 but has calmed slightly above $360.
On a 24-hour scale, ADA, DOGE, XRP, UNI, and BCH have also marked minor gains. Polkadot has outperformed all larger-cap altcoins with an 11% surge to just shy of $24.
Further gains are evident from Kusama (16%), Qtum (11%), Monero (11%), Zcash (10%), and NEAR Protocol (10%).
The cumulative market cap has recovered another sizeable chunk of value and is currently above $1.6 trillion.
