- Bitcoin falls backs to $57,000, keeping people glued to their seats.
- Altcoins like ETH, BNB, USDT, Sol, etc., drop back after gains.
- Today’s top gainers include Elrond (EGLD) and Voyager Token (VGX).
The cryptocurrency market is vast, with a great many tokens available as investment options. Bitcoin and Ethereum are the top big shots, but no one even knew their names once upon a time. These cryptocurrencies and more like them, started from the bottom, scaling higher paths, thanks to the sheer vastness of investors all over the crypto world.
Now, they’re a sensation on the market, highly sought by many. While our top 10 tokens may be worthy, they can zoom to the top of the crypto world before you know it. It’s crucial to analyze their values and forecast their value prices. A big mistake among investors is not setting their sights outside of the box, shut in by BTC and ETH.
Bitcoin’s chances to upturn $60k slim?
Most people uninvolved with cryptocurrency might have heard of Bitcoin despite their lack of knowledge about them. The influence of BTC is spread vastly throughout the world, making it difficult to ignore.
Bitcoin seen as leading the market is a good thing, but the high expectations for Bitcoin are nerve-wracking. When there’s a price drop, people with higher expectations may find themselves losing faith in its absoluteness bit by bit. Bitcoin has to work extra hard to maintain its social standing.
For now, Bitcoin has fixed itself upon the $57,200 mark, neither going up nor down. Its 24-hour volume sits at $30.9 billion, and its market cap is at $1.08 trillion. Bitcoin needs to regain its strength bit by bit, as the crypto world rides on its shoulders with the passing of days.
Ethereum hovers on $4.1k; altcoins indecisive
Although Ethereum is the second leading token in the crypto world, we find that even it struggles to keep itself afloat. The good thing is that Ethereum won’t dare to drip below $4000 value, but it’s not striving to move past $4.5k either, which is a concerning sign for our leading altcoin.
Altcoins such as Binance Coin (BNB), Solana (SOL), Cardano (ADA), etc., are still striding up and down without setting a clear pattern, as if dependent on ETH as their leader. While ETH has its trading value at $4.2k, its trading volume is $16.7 billion, while its market cap rests at $495.09 billion. Other leading altcoins in the top ten have neither lost nor gained a lot, still sitting at their respective posts without leading encouragement from the crypto world as of yet.
EGLD and VGX are among today’s top gainers
Elrond (EGLD) seems to make its way up and up, recording a whopping 20.76% upsurge in value from $406 to $485 value. EGLD makes it clear that even if you don’t stand at the top, it does not mean you have only loss ahead of you. Things in the crypto world are very uncertain; nothing ever stays the same for entirely too long.
Aside from Elrond, we have Voyager Token (VGX) taking the second lead, gaining 17.94% within the last twenty-four hours, to about $4.63 market value.
Invest on vigilance, education, to guard freedom
Remain vigilant while dabbling in cryptocurrency, as your hard-earned money may be at stake should you make the wrong move. It’s good to explore your options, make sure you have grasped the concept of cryptocurrency well in your hands, and set your sights for something worth your while.
The last thing anyone wants is to lose money; often, people may even diddle with cryptocurrency to quench their gambling habit. It would help if you always kept your sights clear and your ears open for new news; what was in yesterday may be old-fashioned tomorrow, the token you scoffed at last week may be gaining hundreds of dollars’ value this week. Exercising constant vigilance is the key to success in the crypto world. Plus, being a conduit for neutral education is essential to avoid many innocent people getting hacked or scammed.
Solana set to be the ‘Bitcoin Killer’?
A blockchain with the ability to perform thousands of transactions per second must be the next Bitcoin. Sam Bankman-Fried believes SOL has the potential to become the next Bitcoin since the Solana blockchain can execute 50,000 transactions per second.
Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF), in a recent interview with Kitco, praised Solana for its potential to expand to millions of transactions per second. According to the FTX CEO, this makes Solana a critical component of cryptocurrency acceptance and the next Bitcoin.
The scalability of Solana could aid its evolution into a new Ethereum or Bitcoin.
“I am optimistic about Solana. She has every chance of doing this, which is very interesting, I think.’
Analyst bullish on SOL
Influential investors are positive on Solana, which is helping altcoin gain traction.
With a growth in institutional acceptance, venturefounder, a cryptocurrency analyst, feels that Solana could end up competing with Ethereum.
I was early for #BTC #ETH #DeFi, but I missed #NFT #metaverse #memecoins
After reflection, I realize my fear for unknown prevented me from learning new innovations

“More Crypto Online” cryptocurrency analysts are positive on Solana. As the cryptocurrency price trend reverses, analysts forecast a price rise to a new all-time high of $305.
During the crypto massacre on Black Friday, the price of Solana fell below $200. The price of the altcoin has recovered and is now trading near $200 at the time of writing. Over the last two months, there has been a surge in institutional intake and capital rotation into Solana.
At the time of writing, SOL is trading at $196.63, up 0.6% in the last 24 hours.the resistance on the upside is at $199.94. However in case of a decline, the support on the downside is at $190.68.
El Salvador’s President Has A few Words For Bank Of England’s Chief
El Salvador’s President has a few words for Bank of England’s chief who recently expressed worries about the country’s Bitcoin adoption.
Check out his relevant tweet below.
Bank of England is “worried” about El Salvador’s adoption of #Bitcoin?
I guess Bank of England’s interest in the well-being of our people is genuine.
I mean, they have always cared about our people. Always.
Gotta love Bank of England 😍https://t.co/qsQNdw8h7L— Nayib Bukele 🇸🇻 (@nayibbukele) November 27, 2021
A commenter said: “Before bitcoin nobody around the world cared about El Salvador now there are competing interests either supporting or attacking El Salvador. El Salvador is now relevant.”
Someone else posted this: “Exactly what i been saying! My family is from el salvador, and my whole life not a single soul i ever met here in the U.S even knew about the country, and if they did, they only heard of it because of gang affiliation… nothing else. Bukele is making waves!!!”
On the other hand, a follower said: “The Bank of England’s Point of Concern: “….It concerns me that a country would choose it as its national currency. What would worry me most of all is, do the citizens of El Salvador understand the nature and volatility of the currency they have.” Seems a legitimate worry.”
Bitcoin adoption concerning?
CryptoSlate notes the fact that Bailey said the move to adopt Bitcoin within a dual currency system was concerning, while also adding that volatility would impact most detrimentally.
This isn’t the first time that Bailey warned of the “dangers” of crypto.
Back in May, Bailey said cryptos have no intrinsic value and that investors should be prepared to lose all their money.
At the moment of writing this article, BTC is trading in the red and the king coin is priced at $54,667.
Bitcoin skeptic Saule Omarova to be rejected as Biden’s nominee for OCC in win for crypto
- Saule Omarova was nominated to head OCC and it looked bleak for the future of cryptocurrencies as she is an outspoken critic of Bitcoin.
- New reports reveal that some Democratic senators in U.S Congress will reject her, and with all Republicans united against her, she will most likely not assume office.
Saule Omarova, a Bitcoin critic who was nominated for one of the most important financial regulatory jobs in the U.S, is looking unlikely to go through Senate confirmation. According to new reports, some Democratic Senators have rejected the Biden pick, particularly opposing her hardline stance against big banks. With Republican Senators all against her, she looks unlikely to be the next Comptroller of the Currency.
Omarova was nominated by the White House in September to take over from the Acting OCC, Michael Hsu. As CNF reported at the time, the cryptocurrency community joined the banking fraternity to ask questions of what would be of her reign. Omarova is an outspoken critic of the big banks, having consistently criticized government bailouts. She has also suggested that the Federal Reserve should be allowed to serve Americans, effectively wiping out the commercial banks.
For cryptocurrencies, the future looked just as bleak. She has previously stated that she believes they “benefit mainly the dysfunctional financial system we already have.”
In her Senate grilling two weeks ago, she held on to her anti-Bitcoin views. Responding to crypto-friendly Senator Cynthia Lummis‘ question on whether Bitcoin threatens national security, she stated:
I’m not an expert on Bitcoin but I’d worry if all our financial transactions were up to some blockchain system where various actors who might actually be located in other countries, not particularly friendly to us, control the functioning of the system.
Omarova to be rejected
According to reports in Washington, Omarova is set to be rejected in Senate. Already, virtually all Republican senators have said they will reject her. Many of them have even attacked her on personal terms, as well as her ‘socialist-leaning’ beliefs.
Axios reports that five Democratic Senators have joined the anti-Omarova bandwagon as well. The five told Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown, who heads the Senate Banking Committee of their dissent. If they vote against her, the Kazakhstan-born academic will stand virtually no chance as the house is almost divided in half between Republicans and Democrats.
However, despite the opposition, the White House continues to back her publicly. A White House official told Axios:
The White House continues to strongly support her historic nomination. Saule Omarova is eminently qualified for this position. She has been treated unfairly since her nomination with unacceptable red-baiting from Republicans like it’s the McCarthy era.
