BTC and altcoin market shake off volatile weekend

Today’s edition of OKEx Insights’ Crypto Market Daily covers Bitcoin, Ethereum, altcoins and DeFi.

The price of Bitcoin ( BTC) is up another 1.8% over the past 24 hours after a volatile weekend that saw the cryptocurrency market leader drop to as low at 14,350 USDT on OKEx before rebounding to as high as 15,639 USDT. As of press time, it is trading around $15,205.37.

The altcoin market saw a similarly volatile price action over the weekend, with some major coins and tokens rebounding to slight gains. The price of Ether (ETH) is up 1.9% and Chainlink (LINK) is up 2.2%.

The total cryptocurrency market capitalization is up 2.1% over the past 24 hours and now sits at $446,611,498,700 after comfortably regaining the $400 billion level last week. BTC dominance decreased by 1% over the weekend, falling from Friday’s 64.4% to this morning’s 63.4%, according to CoinGecko.

Sunday night witnessed a noticeable jump in Dow Jones, S&P 500 and Nasdaq futures. Traditional markets are rallying strongly and have seemingly shaken off concerns about an increasing number of COVID-19 cases in the United States, Europe and elsewhere following Joe Biden’s projected victory in the United States presidential election — a win that is already being challenged by current President Donald Trump and his legal team.

Strength in the traditional markets may also equate to more strength in the cryptocurrency market, especially if traders find their appetite for risk increases.

Top altcoin gainers and losers

  • CVC/USDT +41.98%
  • UTK/USDT +26.86%
  • VIB/USDT +22.05%
  • BOX/USDT -11.56%
  • HDAO/USDT -12.17%
  • QUN/USDT -12.59%

The best performers on OKEx have seen drastically higher gains than the worst performers, with Civic ( CVC) once again topping the charts following a massive gain of over 40%.
