“The global crypto market cap and trading volume fell over the last day. Bitcoin and Ethereum traded their highest in the past two weeks yesterday. BTC and ETH soared above US$43,000 and US$3,000 levels before falling to US$42,000 and US$2,900 early this morning. BTC’s current dominance in the market is 41%, while the support price holds at US$40,000,” Edul Patel, CEO and Co-founder, Mudrex said.

“The resistance between US$46,000 to US$50,000 could keep the buyers active in the market. BTC can reverse the four-month-long downtrend if it crosses above US$46,000. Altcoins such as Cardano, Polkadot, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum Classic, Elrond, Internet Computer, and others have gained decent amounts more than the previous day,” Patel said.
