During Q1 of 2019, the market dominance of Bitcoin was close to 50%. The investment in altcoins was possibly in anticipation of an altcoin bull run similar to 2017. However, the developments in Q2 with stablecoins and institutional investors have driven the altcoins into the shadows. While slight gains have been recorded on altcoins w.r, t US dollar, they continue to lose value to Bitcoin.

Binance [BNB] Coin Hold Above $36

Binance [BNB] Coin has been one of the top gainers of the cryptocurrency market this year. The exchange backed token has seen an unprecedented rise this year with the increase of Binance Exchange and other associated product.

The price of Binance at 5: 00 hours UTC on 25th June 2019 is $36.9. It is trading at par on a daily scale.

Tron [TRX] and Monero [XMR] have also gained considerably, along with Bitcoin over the past few weeks. The price of TRX and XMR at 5: 00 Hours UTC on 25th May 2019 is $0.038 and $116. They are trading 1.5% higher on a daily scale.

The total market capitalization of altcoins has increased by about $15 billion since the beginning of the month. Many altcoins have gained slightly w.r.t. US Dollar. While the stability is somewhat reassuring, the rise is Bitcoin dominance is also creating FUD among altcoin holders. MoonOver Lord, anonymous crypto-analyst tweeted,

“The altcoin sentiment feels eerily similar to mid to late 2017 Bitcoin just went up and up and $ALTS got smoked Then all of the sudden WHAM, a few alts lead the way and they started going 50, 100X out of nowhere I suspect this time will be no different, you won’t get a warning.”

On the other hand, many analysts also see this as an end to the altcoin market and the cryptocurrency bubble. Tone Vays, a Derivatives Trader and hedge fund manager, noted earlier that Bitcoin’s dominance could increase to about 90% in the future.

Crypto markets up across the board (but not by much)



In the wild, wild world of crypto, any week that goes by with nothing crashing leads investors to breathe a sigh of relief.

When markets go nowhere, they count their blessings.

And when sectors rise across the board, as they did this week, it’s even better. (Even if the increase is minor.)

Our broadest measure of the crypto marketplace, our Weiss 50 Crypto Index (W50), rose 4.82% on the week. More importantly, it did this by bouncing off key support earlier in the week.

Bitcoin outperformed and was responsible for about half of that rally. We know because our Weiss 50 Crypto ex-BTC Index (W50X), which excludes Bitcoin, was up only half as much — 2.38% on the week:

But again, the good news this week was

that ALL sectors improved (albeit slightly):

The Weiss Large-Cap Crypto Index (WLC) was up 5.17%, outperforming the Weiss 50 by a hair …

The Weiss Small-Cap Crypto Index (WSC) was up 4.06%, underperforming by a hair, and …

The Weiss Mid-Cap Crypto Index (WMC) was only up only 2.10%.

The broad consistency across all sectors is somewhat encouraging. Also encouraging is the fact that the entire sector is consolidating just above key support levels. (On Bitcoin, those levels roughly correspond to the $7,200 level.) 

We’re watching those levels very, very carefully on all of the Weiss Crypto Price Indexes.

If they break below, it would signal more downside.

But if they can continue to hold and manage a nice rally, it would augur for a relatively strong start in the new year.

Top Crypto Markets Rebound Despite Binance Maintenance



Today is another day on which Binance will go down for scheduled maintenance. Normally, this isn’t a problem, but the current market turmoil may yield a different result. 

Binance is still the world’s largest cryptocurrency trading platform on the market today.


Whenever this platform goes down for several hours, the markets may undergo significant changes.

Particularly for alternative currencies, this could spell trouble today, after what can only be described as a brutal weekend. 

This latest maintenance period was well-communicated by the company ahead of time.

Even so, a lot of enthusiasts often remain unaware of what is effectively going on behind the scenes.

Binance has recently gotten caught up in some fake news regarding the Chinese government.


such, this latest maintenance may spark even more fear among cryptocurrency traders.

As part of the upgrade, it seems nothing major will change.

Binance will keep optimizing the performance of its matching engine, but that is a standard practice. 

It will be very interesting to see how this downtime affects Bitcoin and the top altcoins.

More often than not, a maintenance by Biancne triggers some odd trading behavior across other exchanges.

Given how all markets have noted big losses recently, one can only hope the momentum reverses again.

It seems some of that momentum reversal is already becoming apparent across the top markets.

Only time will tell if any of it can be sustained for more than a few hours on end.
