After one whole week of battling sellers, the crypto-pioneer and leader by market capitalization Bitcoin (BTC) made it above $4,000.00 with today’s stellar market performance.
In just around 30 minutes, the total global market capitalization jumped from $132.00 bln to $139.00 bln with Bitcoin counting 5.60% gain in the last 24-hours as a positive sentiment struck the industry and bulls are having their saying.
Without a doubt the one who is standing out strong for a couple of days now is the silver to bitcoin’s gold representation – Litecoin (LTC). In only a week the digital asset ranked 6th according to data on CoinMarketCap – climbed its way from $22.50 to $40.00 in only two weeks following Ethereum‘s recovery-run which took place upon closing-in to its Constantinople Hard Fork. Reaching important levels approximately at the same time for all coins is taking a slight turn downwards as short-term traders are using the increased value to gather profit. Per time of writing the pair LTC/USD is one of the only counting double digit gains at 11.70% – leading the BTC market at 5.65%.
Following up is Cardano (ADA) with 10.63% reaching the $0.04950 level fighting to get above $0.05000 once again.
The Cardano Foundation recently wiped the dust off its one-month dormant Twitter account to issue a notable announcement, divulging that Cardano’s hierarchy had undergone a sudden shift. As Charles Hoskinson, one of the masterminds behind the Ethereum and Cardano projects alike, put it, “The Babylonian Captivity of Cardano Has Ended.”
Per a public statement issued by the Foundation, Michael Parsons, the former chairman, has stepped down from his role willingly, with this change taking effect immediately.
