Bitcoin has finally calmed down after the recent price volatility and remains slightly above the $30,000 mark. Most altcoins are also unusually stable on the 24-hour scale. Tezos and FTT are among the few exceptions.
bitcoin stands above $30K
The past few days have been quite volatile for the primary cryptocurrency, starting on June 6th when it rallied from lows of $30,000 to a multi-day high of around $32,000.
However, at that point, the scenario changed drastically as BTC fell by more than $2,000 to $29,200 in hours. Nevertheless, another price increase occurred, and bitcoin found itself trading above $31,500 shortly after.
The volatility continued a bit further, causing BTC to once again reach $30,000 in the south. Since then, however, the cryptocurrency has been relatively calm around that level and is currently sitting above it. Hence, it has a market cap of $580 billion and a 46.5% dominance over altcoins.
