The past several days have been somewhat turbulent in the cryptocurrency space. Bitcoin, for instance, plunged to $9,400 on Monday, traded around $9,600 yesterday, and gained about $700 in the past 24 hours alone, before settling at $10,150 where it currently stands.
On its way down, the significant support level of $9,400 stopped BTC. If Bitcoin is to fall again, $9,770 should be the first considerable obstacle now.
Alternatively, the $10,400-$10,500 resistance level continues to be a major thorn for bulls. The largest cryptocurrency attempted to break it on several occasions in the last few weeks but to no avail.
Most alternative coins are in the green against the dollar as well. Among the top 10 by market capitalization, Tezos is the most impressive gainer. XTZ’s positive movement is with over 11% to $3.65.
Ethereum and Litecoin are next; the former rises with 5% to $279, and the latter is up with 3.27% to $76.5. EOS and Binance Coin are increasing its value with approximately 2.3% to $4,56 and $24, respectively.
Contrary, BitcoinSV stands as the only currency in red among the top 15 by market capitalization. BSV drops with over 4% against the dollar to $302.
