Total market capitalization


Bitcoin price

After a sharp downside correction, bitcoin price found support near USD 53,200. BTC started a steady recovery and it climbed above the USD 55,000 level. The price is now consolidating and is facing hurdles on its road to USD 56,500. The first key resistance is near the USD 57,200.

The key breakout resistance is near USD 58,000, where the bears might appear. If there is a fresh decline, the bulls might take a stand near the USD 54,000 level.

Ethereum price

Ethereum price recovered sharply from USD 1,710 and it broke the USD 1,780 resistance. ETH even spiked above USD 1,800, but it faced sellers near USD 1,820. The price is retreating, but it might find bids near USD 1,740 and USD 1,725.

On the upside, a daily close above USD 1,800 could possibly start a fresh increase. The next key resistance sits near USD 1,850, above which it might grind higher towards the USD 1,920 level.

BNB, ADA, litecoin, and XRP price

Binance Coin (BNB) is back above the USD 250 level, but it is struggling to gain bullish momentum. BNB seems to be facing resistance near USD 262 and USD 265. A clear break above USD 265 might push the price towards USD 288. Conversely, the price could resume its decline towards USD 225 and USD 220.

Cardano (ADA) is consolidating above the USD 1.000 support zone. If ADA settles above USD 1.050, there could be a move towards the USD 1.110 level. The key level for a sustained upward move is near USD 1.120. On the downside, the USD 1.000 level holds the key in the near term.

Litecoin (LTC) is attempting to recover above USD 200 and USD 205. A convincing follow up move above USD 205 might clear the path for a test of USD 220. If not, the price might decline towards the USD 180 and USD 172 levels in the coming sessions.

XRP price outperformed bitcoin and ethereum, with a strong spike above USD 0.465 and USD 0.480. However, a close above the USD 0.500 is a must for a sustained upward move. The next key resistance is near USD 0.550.

Other altcoins market today

A few altcoins climbed over 10%, including ORBS, SC, RVN, LUNA, ONT, RSR, NEXO, ICX, VGX, XEM, and DGB. Conversely, HOT, CHZ, HBAR, MATIC, and CAKE are down over 5%.

To sum up, bitcoin price is trying to recover losses by moving above USD 55,000. However, BTC is likely to face a strong selling interest near the USD 57,200 and USD 58,000 levels.

Kimchi Premium Vanishes, then Returns as Bank Issues Appear to Have Hit Upbit

Source: iStock/TwilightShow Widespread reports of a return of the kimchi premium appear to have been shrouded in confusion after bitcoin (BTC) prices plummeted briefly on a number of domestic exchanges before rising back above the USD 62,000 mark – while the market-leading Upbit platform suspended fiat withdrawals, possibly due to a banking issue. The platform announced that it was conducting an “urgent inspection of KRW deposits and withdrawals,” but did not specify what the issue was in an official notice. However, the Upbit operator Dumanu told the media outlet TechM that the issue was with a “fiat deposit and withdrawals service provider,” and “not with Upbit’s servers.” The problem, however, may lie with the exchange’s banking partner. As previously reported, Upbit has partnered with the neobank K-Bank, with whom the crypto exchange’s ...
