BeInCrypto presents our daily morning roundup of crypto news and market changes that you might have missed while you were asleep.
Bitcoin (BTC) Update
Bitcoin has recovered slightly today after dropping to $50,300 on March 25. BTC is currently trading for $52,680 — a 4.5% gain for anyone that was able to perfectly time yesterday’s dip.
However, BTC isn’t out of the woods yet. It’s broken down below a channel that has been ongoing since Dec. 12, 2020.
In cases like this, it’s normal to see the price retest the support line as resistance. This appears to be what’s happening now. Whether or not BTC can move back into the channel will likely determine the direction of the trend.
The top-ten ranked cryptocurrencies have seen a bit of rearranging this week. After initially breaking into the top-ten on March 23, Theta Network (THETA) has continued seeing success. It has usurped Litecoin (LTC) to become the ninth-biggest cryptocurrency by market cap.
MVL (MVL) currently ranked #99 is the worst performer in the top-100 this morning. It’s down 9.3% and trading at $0.049, although it’s still up by more than 34% in the past week.
