After a few days of trading sideways, Bitcoin’s price appears to be headed north. It was trading at around $7,100, and it surged to over $7,650 on Bitstamp before retracing slightly to the current level of approximately $7,500.
Bitcoin marks a 4.6% increase at the moment. The interesting thing is that BTC’s dominance is also on the move. Currently standing at 68.9%, it’s obvious that Bitcoin claims a larger part of the market share as altcoins struggle to note any serious gains.
Ethereum has broken the $130 level, currently at $132, which is an increase of 2.7% against the dollar. However, when we compare it to BTC, it loses 2.24% of value to 0.0176 SAT. Ripple is up with 1% against USD but XRP/BTC is 3.35% down.
Binance Coin is trading at $13.77 and at 0.0018 SAT, meaning а 2.34% USD increase and а 2.59% BTC decrease.
Tezos has been one of the best performers in the last several weeks, but it’s currently down against both USD and BTC – 0.71% and 5.22%, respectively.
