Crypto markets being driven by altcoins; Cardano, NEM and CRO Cranking, Bitcoin dominance diminishing.
Crypto markets are still consolidating as we round off another week. Volume has crept up a little and a slow uptrend has formed over the past couple of days as major crypto assets hit resistance levels. Total market capitalization has made it over $135 billion for the past few hours.
Bitcoin has moved very little over the past 24 hours. BTC hit an intraday high of $3,945 before instantly dumping to $3,900 then slowly building back up to $3,920 where it currently trades. Volume is back over $10 billion and key technical indicators such as MACD and hourly RSI are in the bullish zone.
Ethereum, which has been slowly sliding back all week, has made a percent on the day taking it to $135. The move has taken ETH through the weekly down trend line so further momentum could follow, especially if Bitcoin turns bullish. XRP has made a minor loss on the day dropping back to $0.311.
The top ten is pretty mixed at the time of writing but gains are no more than a percent or so for those in the green. Stellar, which recently flipped Tether for eighth spot, has dumped 4% on the day dropping market cap back to $2 billion. XLM is about to drop back down the charts as it falls to $0.105.
There is a lot more green in the top twenty during today’s Asian trading session. Larger gains have been made by Cardano as ADA climbs 5.5% to $0.049. NEM is also having a big pump with around 9% added on the day to take the token to $0.050. A possible link between NEM Malaysia and Air Asia could be driving the fomo.
During the panel discussion, #NEM Malaysia Investments and Strategy Director Jasmine Ng said while investments to explore blockchain’s implementation in businesses could be costly, she said there is a huge potential upside. Read the full story here👇https://t.co/b6TzgGsiGu

IOTA, NEO and Ethereum Classic have all made over 3% in the past 24 hours as ‘altseason’ gathers momentum.
FOMO: Crypto.com Chain Still Pumping
Crypto.com Chain has continued its epic surge adding another 50% as it nears the top twenty. Over the past week CRO has made an epic 900% pumping from $0.013 to $0.092. Today’s surge has been driving by a listing on Upbit;

Also having a good run today is Lisk and Digitex Futures, both pumping 17% on the day. Crypto.com’s other token, MCO is also up 17% at the moment. REPO is well in the red right now and is the top one hundred’s worst performing altcoin with a dump of 10%, Electroneum is not far behind losing 8% today.
Total market capitalization has remained over $135 billion adding a billion dollars since the same time yesterday. Daily volume is building and is now at $33 billion as altcoins lead markets at the moment. Bitcoin dominance has fallen to its lowest level this year as it sinks to 50.9% while the altcoins continue to strengthen.
