Price Analysis 10/27: BTC, ETH, BNB, XRP, ADA.

BTC as well as other cryptocurrencies saw notable increases over the last two days. During this period, most major crypto assets recorded significant gains, which reflected in the global cryptocurrency market cap.

For the first time in more than 30 days, the value of the sector under consideration exceeded $1 trillion. Since dipping below it on September 15, there was no push to reclaim the lost level until yesterday.

We observed that sentiment across the market was bullish and most assets recorded notable gains. However, the industry’s value at the writing time is below $1T. This is due to the massive decline in buying pressure across it.

As a result, the prices of most cryptocurrencies are down by a few percent. The top losers over the last 24 hours are TON and CSPR, with losses exceeding 13% and 8% respectively. The global cryptocurrency market is also at $983 billion at this time.

Many speculate on the reason for the initial increases. One of the positive fundamentals that made rounds since the week started was that of crypto-friendly Rishi Sunak, resuming office as the new UK prime minister.

Another crypto proponent, Elon Musk, sealed the Twitter deal and now owns the platform. All these events hint that some cryptocurrencies will see more increases than others. Let’s examine how some top assets performed over the last seven days.
