Bitcoin holds steady above $56K as markets begin to calm

Bitcoin holds steady above $56K as markets begin to calm

After plummeting by more than 8% in a matter of hours on Friday to the $54,000 mark, Bitcoin (BTC) is back trading above $56,000 on November 30.

Indeed, despite the flash collapse on Friday, which knocked away about 9% of the global cryptocurrency market in a matter of hours, Bitcoin is now changing hands at $56,810, down 1.10% in the last 24 hours and down up 0.90% in the previous week, according to CoinMarketCap data.

The flagship digital asset is now trading at $1.07 trillion. Meanwhile, the market’s uneven performance has left it in a situation of confusion, with experts split on whether it has lost its momentum after setting an all-time high earlier in November.

Several feel the market has entered a bear phase following a 20% drop from its all-time high, while others anticipate the recent downturn will precede new record highs by the end of 2021.

Whatsmore, the Ethereum (ETH) price appears to be breaking out of its bullish pennant, and it is now aiming for a new all-time high at $5,000, following Friday’s dip when global markets sent crypto assets down. 

In particular, ETH looks to be ignoring Friday’s dip, with a speedy return to the uptrend, trading at $4,440.82, up 3.36% on the day and 7.78% in the previous seven days.

Elsewhere, Shiba Inu’s (SHIB)price jump was followed by a significant increase in market interest, which occurred due to the presence of considerable purchasing power on whale-tier wallets. 

Notably, SHIB is trading $0.00004884, up 23.37% in the last 24 hours and 15.03% over the previous week, with a market cap of $26.8 billion.

It’s also worth mentioning that the decentralized token has now finally been listed on the Kraken exchange, which could have also helped increase the trade volume. For virtually the entire month of November, the Shiba Inu has been in a downtrend pattern. 

After reaching its lowest point of the month on Friday, with global markets in a state of panic, investors were able to identify purchase opportunities as fears over the new Covid variant began to subside. 

Interestingly, now out of the top 100 crypto assets ranked by market cap, SHIB has seen the most significant increase in daily gains, whether the increase in buying activity will continue and that this will mark the beginning of a new longer-term rally remains to be seen.
