Bitcoin (BTC) has suffered the smallest setback today as the rate of the chief crypto has gone down by “only” 10%.

From the technical point of view, the dump can be considered a correction to gain more liquidity before continued growth.

In this case, the closest resistance is around $59,700, which can be attained shortly.

Bitcoin is trading at $55,400 at press time.


The rate of Ethereum (ETH) has gone down deeper, with the drop making up 12.60%.

Ethereum (ETH) can also make a retest of the former mirror level at $2,312. However, it is too early to consider the revival of the long-term bullish trend as bears are still powerful.

Ethereum is trading at $2,116 at press time.


XRP is not an exception to the rule, and its drop is 19%.

Before further movement, XRP might first test the resistance around $1.40. At the moment, volatility remains high, and neither bulls nor bears are controlling the situation on the market.

XRP is trading at $2,116 at press time.


Cardano (ADA) has also gone down, showing a price change of -14%.

Cardano (ADA) has bounced off the MA 50 on the daily chart, which means that there is a good chance that the drop was just a correction and not the start of a bearish trend. In this regard, ADA may return to the first vital level of $1.344 soon.

ADA is trading at $1.20 at press time.


The rate of Binance’s native exchange token has decreased by 13% over the past 24 hours.

BNB is trading at $455 at press time.


Polkadot (DOT) is the main loser today as the rate of the altcoin has decreased by almost 20%.

Despite a sharp decline, there are chances of seeing a correction to the area around $40. To keep the bullish trend going, DOT needs to accumulate some power trading sideways.

DOT is trading at $36.37 at press time.
