On the other hand, if you are a rangebound trader seeking a range for Bitcoin to bounce between, you might find a lower boundary at $9,501.76 USD and an upper boundary at $12,058.67 USD. In terms of its overall importance in the cryptocurrency market, Bitcoin’s current market capitalization is $189.74 billion US dollars, which is about 67.16% of the market capitalization of all cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin’s dominance has been trending up slightly, averaging a gain of 0.4% each day over the past two weeks. A gain in dominance may suggest the case for altcoins is getting weaker, and that Bitcoin’s chances for long-term survival are thus enhanced.
