Today’s crypto movers: Bitcoin (↑2.51%), Ethereum (↑7.71%), Decred (↓1.35%), Quant (↑27.27%)
The crypto market continues to rally, with Bitcoin and Ethereum bouncing back from losses earlier this week.
Bitcoin is rising back toward the $21,000 level and both BTC and Ethereum have erased most of the losses posted early this week as cryptocurrencies continue in rally mode.
The overall crypto market saw prices change by 6.55% in the last 24 hours, adding to the gains that started rolling up Thursday.
Trading volume over the last 24 hours was 23% higher than the recent 7-day average, suggesting the rally may have some investor conviction behind it.
The two biggest coins: Bitcoin and Ethereum
The price of Bitcoin (BTC) rose 2.51% over the last 24 hours. At the time of writing, Bitcoin was trading at $20,888.40, after falling near $19,000 midweek.
The price of Ethereum (ETH) rose 7.71% over the last 24 hours, up $87.90 to $1,228.12. It traded near $1,000 earlier this week.
Both are near key resistance levels and the test will be whether they can break out of recent trading ranges.
