Weekly Crypto Report, Ethereum surges while altseason continues

GENERAL OVERVIEW

The past week was a good one for the cryptocurrency market, which saw some very good performances among top projects overall . The dynamic was slightly different with respect to the recent weeks, with Bitcoin providing a nice impulse to the market and a good chunk of altcoins overperforming it, overcoming a kind of juxtapposition trend which we were starting to be used to.

We also observed an underperformance from the projects which were strongest recently, with the market catching up at higher levels in a clear step forward.

It is worth to say that this week crypto market looked a lot healtier than traditional financial markets as well.

Overall, BTC dominance keeps falling and the total crypto market capitalization growing, with the latter adding circa 17 billion USD in the week.

Bitcoin had a positive week, turning up at the half to finish the period with a price of 9’537 USD and a +4.37% performance w/w. The 9’500 USD level was gained back, which was not be seen since basically a month ago.

Overall, the general index performed better than BTC as it is reflected in our indexes.

TOP PROJECTS

Thirteen of the top coins reported a positive result, with two of them reporting a double-digit gain. The median return was 4.20%.

Ethereum (ETH) and Iota (IOTA) were able to separate themselves from the peers, crossing the 10% mark in terms of returns.

On a wider period, LINK is still holding the top spot in terms of returns followed by Cardano (ADA).

TECHNICALS

Looking at the last seven days’ prices, we see how Binance Coin (BNB) and ETH are the coins nearest to the top of their trading range.

On a weekly basis, basicall all the coins are looking healthy according to moving averages’ differences and MACD looks like inverting the recent negative signal, while the situation of the latter looks even better in a wider period.

On a monthly basis, top names in terms of price proximity to the range top are the same ETH and BNB we observed during the past week.

We proceed to have a look at the frequency distributions of the coins’ price in terms of satoshis to have a look at the relative performances. ETH in particular is exploring a new fair price level with respect to BTC according to what we described in the previous section. The same can be seen in a wider period. Dash (DASH) is showing weakness overall.
