- The recent downside bias remains intact across the crypto market.
- Top 3 widely traded coins to shed about 15% each on the week.
The world’s no. 1 digital coin, Bitcoin, is seen resuming its recent bearish momentum, as we head towards the weekly closing. However, the second most traded cryptocurrency, Ethereum, remains the less hated amongst the top three most favorite digital asset, as it loses nearly 1.5% so far this Sunday. Meanwhile, the first coin now eyes the half-yearly lows once again, enjoying a market capitalization of $ 131.30 billion.
