BITCOIN BTC DOMINANCE DOWN 11%

Bitcoin has started to consolidate just above the $10k mark but altcoins are still climbing which has pushed BTC dominance to an eight-month low.

Has the alt season finally arrived? Since the beginning of this year, the BTC market share has declined by almost 11%.

By the end of last year it had topped 70% but today it has dropped to 62.5% according to Tradingview.

This is the lowest it has been since early July 2019. The Bitcoin price itself has made around 44% this year in a climb from just under $7,200 to top out at $10,500 a couple of days ago.

These gains are impressive when compared to any other asset such as gold which has only managed just over 4% in the same period.

However, in the world of cryptocurrencies, these gains have been eclipsed by some of the altcoins, several of which have surged by three figures since the beginning of the year.

Total market capitalization itself is up over 60% since New Year’s Day as the rest of the cryptocurrencies out-perform their big brother.

Total crypto market cap topped $300 billion this week which is the highest it has been since early August last year.

XRP Price Hits 7-Month High as BitMEX Users Reel From 60% Flash Crash BitMEX continues to field major criticism and even anger from traders who lost huge amounts of money in a flash crash involving altcoin Ripple XRP.

The crash, which occurred at 14.00 UTC on Feb. 13, saw XRP/USD fall 60% from $0.33 to just $0.13 – for two seconds.

In that time, traders complain, measures designed to prevent liquidations of positions failed to activate, and BitMEX automatically erased their entire balances.

BitMEX is well known for offering trades with significant leverage. In the case of XRP, traders are able to leverage by up to 50 times.
