Over the weekend, the number one cryptocurrency, Bitcoin has added around $6,000 following its dip during the week. Similarly, the number one altcoin, Ethereum has reclaimed the $1,700 level as the crypto market continues a slow recovery.

Binance coin, however, leads the altcoin recovery surging 9% to $275 in the last 24 hours.

Bitcoin back above coveted $55,000

Mission one has been accomplished by the crypto after returning to the strong resistance level at $55,000 and moving above the mark.


Speculations that the record $6 billion worth of options contract which expired on Friday was going to push the price of the coin back was just another conspiracy by bears in the market. It had no effect whatsoever on Bitcoin price so far.

Rather the number one crypto, Bitcoin has been on a steady way up leading to it overcoming the resistance faced at $55,000. Bears still had their share of the market, however, as the price slumped below $54,000 again. At press time, BTC trades at $56,200 region.
