The crypto market stalled as Bitcoin held a major support level.
Bitcoin helped most cryptocurrencies hold their ground as it traded above US$21,000.
The overall crypto market saw prices change by 1.67% in the last 24 hours, which is a move higher compared to the past few days.
Trading volume over the last 24 hours was 1.75% lower than the recent 7-day average, meaning there were no liquidations at these price levels.
The two biggest coins: Bitcoin and Ethereum
Bitcoin is the biggest coin by market cap and its price changed by 1.20% over the last 24 hours.
Bitcoin holds its major support level of US$21,000 as market participants wait for the next catalyst. The next move is likely to come on Friday when Fed’s Jerome Powell speaks at the annual Jackson Hole gathering of central bankers, economists, academics and other policymakers in Wyoming.
The second most valuable crypto, Ethereum, saw its price change by 3.60%. Ethereum’s market cap is 36.49% of Bitcoin’s total value.
Ether trades above US$1,600. Its next important price levels are US$1,750 and US$1,500. Depending on which price breaks first, we could see the move continue in the same direction.
