The entire crypto market capitalization has swelled by 4.6% over the past 24 hours, escalating to a remarkable $1.44 trillion – a zenith last attained in May 2022. This surge has notably reversed most losses from a recent $300 million liquidation event, bringing Bitcoin (BTC) and a host of alternative cryptocurrencies (altcoins) back to the levels seen just a week prior.
Cardano (ADA) and Dogecoin (DOGE) have taken center stage, leading the rally among top tokens by market capitalization. The two altcoins surged by as much as 6%, outpacing their counterparts in a day of substantial gains across the board. Notably, these increases have occurred in the absence of direct catalysts, indicating a market movement primarily propelled by spot buying rather than futures trading.
Cardano, the blockchain platform known for its smart contract functionality, saw its ADA token rise by 6.14% to 41 cents. This increase comes despite recent predictions suggesting a potential dip in ADA’s value. Some analysts had earlier anticipated that ADA might reach a price of $0.348 by November 20, 2023, marking a growth of about 6.25% from current levels.
Furthermore, Cardano’s recent breakout from an 85-day resistance at $0.41 indicates a potential return to its yearly high, adding another layer of complexity to the market dynamics.
Meanwhile, the meme-originated cryptocurrency, Dogecoin, also demonstrated robust performance. According to forecasts from Changelly, DOGE‘s value is expected to increase by 6.00% and reach $0.074862.
These bullish trends align with Bitcoin’s recent leap past $37,000, triggering strong gains across various cryptocurrency markets. The surge has been particularly beneficial for ADA and DOGE, which have capitalized on the positive market sentiment to drive significant price increases.
Market analysts have drawn parallels between the recent trends in the cryptocurrency and traditional asset markets, particularly stocks. Alex Kuptsikevich, a markets analyst at FxPro, pointed out a short-term divergence in the dynamics of these markets. While both asset classes have shown steady growth since October, recent fluctuations hint at an early decoupling stage. Kuptsikevich further observed that Bitcoin bulls remain steadfast, with the cryptocurrency testing the $38,000 threshold, potentially paving the way towards the $46,000 mark.
