Most altcoins trend higher as many produced gains of over 200%, including DOGE rallying from a region of $0.55 to a high of $0.15. Still, these expectations were cut short by the uncertainty surrounding the crypto market, leading to much fear about where the market could be headed. (Data from Binance)
