BeInCrypto presents our daily morning roundup of crypto news and market changes that you might have missed while you were asleep.
Bitcoin is currently trading for $35,220 and is up 11.5% from the $31,500 support. At the moment BTC is directly under a descending resistance line that has been in place since the price of BTC plummeted from the $59,000 level on May 10.
If BTC is unable to move and close above $37,000 in the next few days, it could drop even further to test lower support levels near $26,500.
The RSI has continued trending up and is just below the 50-value threshold. In order to confirm a short-term bullish trend, the RSI would likely need to break above 50 and maintain that level. The next resistance is found at the range highs near $40,500.
The total cryptocurrency market cap has grown another 3% on the day and is just shy of the $1.5 trillion mark. Since falling from an all-time high of $2.55 trillion on May 12, the total market cap has mostly moved in a range between $1.83 trillion and $1.32 trillion.
Nearly every cryptocurrency in the top-100 by market cap has grown in value over the past 24 hours. Compound (COMP) is the biggest gainer of the day so far, up 22.4% in the past 24 hours and 45% in the past week. Elrond (EGLD), Ethereum Classic (ETC), and Bitcoin SV (BSV) are all nipping on its heels, however. Each of these honorable mentions are also up by more than 20% on the day.
Quant (QNT) is today’s biggest altcoin loser. QNT is currently trading for $76.64, down 7.5% on the day. Despite this, QNT is still up by over 32% in the past week.
