The cryptocurrency market is living its greatest moment since late 2017. BTC is creating the buzz and dominance is increasing. However, altcoins are rising soundly as well, with total marketcap excl. BTC sitting at levels basically not seen since summer ’18. All seems set for an altseason once BTC slows down a little bit.
The past week was very good for the cryptocurrency market. BTC price kept climbing without stopping and was able to cross and hold the 15’000 USD level. Altcoins generally lagged the movement but still were overwhelmingly in the green for the period.
The rally was fueled by the news that PayPal is going to integrate BTC and crypto payoments on its platform. The news is both a great one in terms of recognition from a huge payments business player like PayPal and in terms of effective crypto usefulness given how wide PayPal network is. BTC was trading in a lateral phase and this was exactly the kind of news needed in order to take a clear direction.
