Bitcoin Stabilizes Above $7,000 As Dominance Continues To Rise: Friday Crypto Market Watch

After going through another volatility earlier this week, which pushed its value down to as low as $6450 on major exchanges, Bitcoin has made a quick recovery above $7,000 and is currently trading at $7,200, indicating a 1.12% gains on the daily chart. Meanwhile, Bitcoin’s dominance continues to increase and it stands at 68.3%. 

This week’s drop didn’t only cause panic among traders but also turned the entire market into a red zone. Bitcoin’s quick recovery, however, has given a sense of hope that the cryptocurrency will not dip further. If it continues with the current momentum, the coin could break the $7400 resistance level within the next few trading sessions.

Just as expected, a flash of green is spread across the altcoin markets with major coins recording gains of at least 0.5% over the last 24 hours. Ether, the leading altcoin, is charting gains of 1.25% with a current price of $128.68. The coin has been struggling lately. The Ethereum blockchain is expected to undergo an emergency hard fork later this month. XRP is currently trading at $0.19, a situation which many XRP fans will find unpleasant. 

Bitcoin SV (BSV) is the most significant gainer in the top 10 crypto market today with gains of up to 4.84%. BSV is also expected to undergo some network updates in February next year. The coin is currently trading at $88.10.
