Crypto Market Cap Recovers $200B as Bitcoin Tops $57,000 (Market Watch)

Bitcoin has bounced off from yesterday’s massive nosedive and has recovered about $6,000 of value. Most alternative coins have followed along with ETH above $2,200 and BNB north of $530, and the crypto market cap has added roughly $200 billion since yesterday’s low.

Bitcoin Adds $6K Since the Dip

It seemed that everything was going in bitcoin’s way last week after the asset finally reconquered $60,000 and went even further to a new all-time high of $65,000. However, the cryptocurrency started to retrace slightly on Friday and the situation intensified on Saturday.

As CryptoPotato reported, BTC headed south vigorously and lost approximately $9,000 of its dollar value in a matter of hours. While the community still debates the possible reasons, the fact is that bitcoin slumped to a 3-week low and its market capitalization plummeted beneath $1 trillion.

After dumping to $51,500 (on Bitstamp), though, the primary cryptocurrency bounced off. In the following day or so, BTC has regained nearly $6,000 and currently sits above $57,000.

It’s worth noting that BTC investors have taken the adverse price developments somewhat positively. Santiment data shows a significant number of comments saying “buy the dip” during the crash and “bought the dip” upon market recovery the following day.

Altcoins’ Recovery; $200B Added in the Market Cap

Somewhat expectedly, most alternative coins had it even worse during the market dump. Ethereum lost more than $400 in hours but has bounced off rather well and currently stands above $2,250.

Binance Coin also plummeted to a low of $440. However, BNB is more than $90 up since then to a price line of over $530. Ripple (11%), Cardano (6.5%), Polkadot (3.6%), Uniswap (3.5%), Litecoin (4.5%), Chainlink (15%), and Dogecoin (16%) are also well in the green.

Ultimately, the cumulative market capitalization has regained roughly $200 billion since yesterday’s low and is close to $2.1 trillion now.
