After breaking the resistance at $11,000 in the early hours of today, Bitcoin reached as high as $11,040. However, it quickly retraced to $10,500 where it was trading for the majority of the last few days. At the time of this writing, BTC is trading at $10,583, marking a slight increase of about 0.1% in the past 24 hours.
It’s worth noting that Bitcoin’s dominance is still holding relatively strong as it currently sits at around 65.2%. This showcases that altcoins haven’t been able to capitalize on its most recent dump and continue to struggle.
Ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap is down about 0.6% on the day while Ripple (XRP) is down 0.3%.
