The last 24 hours were filled with excitement as Bitcoin’s price surged above the $8300 and $8690 levels for the first time in a long time, which might be an indication that the crypto winter is finally over. Although Bitcoin is currently marking an insignificant loss of 0.19% at press time, the cryptocurrency posted a new 2019 high price at $8,952 during the early hours of today. While BTC price is currently trading at $8,720, we could see the cryptocurrency break the $9,000 mark before the weekend.
As expected, the rest of the crypto market responded positively to the recent Bitcoin rally. Ethereum is still pushing towards the $300 levels, with its current price at $269. XRP, BCH, EOS, LTC, BNB, Stellar, and ADA are trading at $0.42, $432, $7.8, $113, $33, $0.13, and $0.088 respectively.
