Crypto Price Today:Bitcoin, Ether See Gains, Most Altcoins Follow to Trade in Profits

Bitcoin on Monday, November 20 reflected a small profit of 1.60 percent. At the time of writing, the value of Bitcoin stood at $37,241 (roughly Rs. 30.9 lakh). Over the weekend, the price point of Bitcoin has risen notably by $900 (roughly Rs. 74,910). During the weekend, Bitcoin underwent some market fluctuations. As per industry experts, this prompted a reflective examination and invited comparisons to its historic 2021 performance when it last achieved its all-time high (ATH) of over $68,000 (roughly Rs. 56 lakh).

Ether saw even bigger gains than Bitcoin on Monday. With a profit of 2.25 percent, the value of ETH presently stands at $1,997 (roughly Rs. 1.66 lakh). This shows that over the course of the weekend, the value of ETH rose by $18 (roughly Rs. 1,498).

“Over the weekend, both BTC and ETH showed strength, each gaining more than 2.5%. This unexpected resilience during the usually quiet weekends might be because of the positive news about Javier Milei, a supporter of Bitcoin, winning the presidential election in Argentina. He sees Bitcoin as a way to return money to the private sector,” the CoinDCX research team told Tecraze, commenting on the markets situation.

Following the rallies of BTC and ETH, majority cryptocurrencies are trading in the greens.

Binance Coin, Ripple, Solana, Cardano, Dogecoin, Tron, and Chainlink — all recorded gains on Monday.

Other cryptocurrencies to have recorded price hikes today include Avalanche, Polygon, Polkadot, Litecoin, Shiba Inu, and Bitcoin Cash.

The valuation of the crypto market spiked by 2.04 percent in the last 24 hours. The total market cap of the sector, at the time of writing, stood at $1.41 trillion (roughly Rs. 1,17,40,788 crore) as per CoinMarketCap.

“Fidelity has become the latest financial firm that is seeking to create an ETH ETF. Joining its rival BlackRock and 5 other companies, the entry of such financial giants in embracing crypto provides positive signals for the sector. On a similar note, the SEC has delayed its decision on Franklin Templeton’s and Global X’s spot bitcoin ETF applications. The deadline has now been shifted to early 2024, without any significant impact on BTC’s price,” Parth Chaturvedi, Investments Lead, CoinSwitch Ventures told Tecraze.

Meanwhile, a small number of cryptocurrencies did record losses today. These include Tether, USD Coin, Wrapped Bitcoin, Leo, as well as Cronos.

“The market is expected to ride the ETF wave in the coming weeks owing to the favourable macroeconomic conditions,” Shivam Thakral, CEO of BuyUcoin told Tecraze.
