Bitcoin’s fight to remain above $19,000 didn’t go all that well yesterday, as the asset fell to a 9-day low of $18,600 before bouncing off.
The altcoins also went through similar price movements, but most are slightly in the green on a daily scale, including APE’s notable surge.
Bitcoin’s New Local Low
Ever since the end of the previous working week, bitcoin had calmed after the storm and stood at around $19,000. It spent most of the weekend there, and Monday was no exception.
Only as Tuesday was approaching the asset went on the offensive and spiked to $19,600. It was stopped there at first, but it initiated another leg up a day later. However, to no avail again as the bears pushed it south.
As such, BTC returned to a familiar ground of around $19,000 and started fighting for it. Yesterday, though, the cryptocurrency took a sharp dive below that level and dipped to $18,600, which became its lowest price tag since the massive volatility on October 13.
However, the asset reacted well to this drop, bounced off, and now stands inches above $19,000 once more. Its market cap is at $365 billion, while its dominance over the altcoins sits tight at 40%.
ApeCoin Stands Out
Most altcoins experienced a similar ending to the working week but have reclaimed some ground as Saturday arrived.
Ethereum is close to $1,300 after a minor 24-hour price increase. Binance Coin, Cardano, Dogecoin, MATIC, Shiba Inu, and Uniswap have seen similar price pumps in a day.
Ripple and Avalanche have added slightly more value – up to 4% daily. As a result, XRP trades at $0.46, while AVAX sits above $15.
ApeCoin stands out as the most impressive gainer from the mid-cap alts. APE is up by 6.5% daily, which has pushed it to almost $4.5.
The overall crypto market cap has recovered a few billion in a day and sits at $920 billion, according to data from CoinMarketCap.
