Top Five Cryptocurrencies To Watch This Week: BTC, ETH, LUNA, ETC, KSM.

Last week, the cryptocurrency market opened at $1.72 trillion but retraced to $1.70 trillion as it failed to pick momentum. The sector peaked at $1.9 trillion as most assets hiked by a few percent. Unfortunately, the pump could not be sustained as the global cryptocurrency market cap dipped closed at $1.84 trillion.

The distance between the opening price and closing suggests that the industry has seen a more than 9% increase. The sector is off a two-week long trend that saw it open and close an intraweek session at the same valuation.

Bored Ape Yacht Club Launched ApeCoin a few days back and HSBC announcing a partnership with The Sandbox to engage with virtual communities in the metaverse were some of the stories that made waves last week.

Many were also thrilled when the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) announced that it has recovered and returned 12.164699 BTC, worth around $483,595 to an elderly man who resides in Asheville, North Carolina.

The image below further depicts what transpired in the market over the last seven day. Apecoin was the top gainer as it gained more than 1000%. Meanwhile, the top loser is Anchor Protocol, as it is down by 11%.

Many will expect a continuation of last week’s sentiment. Unfortunately, it is almost completely absent. However, there are several bullish news and a petition by the Malaysian Ministry of Communication and Multimedia deputy, Datuk Zahidi Zainul, for crypto assets such as bitcoin should be adopted as a legal tender in the country is one of these stories.

With a brief overview of the industry, let’s examine how some assets will perform over the next six days.

BTC/USD

Last week, Bitcoin opened trading at $37,763, and saw a lot of bullish actions on the first day of the week. Following an almost perfect start to the seven-day period, the rallies subsided on the second day.

The apex coin failed to continue the uptrend as it retraced after an attempt at $40k that stopped at $38,896 on Tuesday. However, the asset rallied on Wednesday as it gained almost 5% and closed above $41k.

Many critical levels were gained during that time. One such is the $40,000 resistance that became support after a test on the third intraday session. The top coin hit a high of $42, 405 and the opening price served as the intraweek low.

Amidst bullish readings from various indicators, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is taking a dip after a more than four-day hike as a result of a decrease in demand concentration. Additionally, the top coin closed above its pivot point despite the drop on Sunday.

Kumasa is one of the many projects previous week in gains. The coin no doubt saw a lot of volatility, like most digital assets, last week as it thrived closed with notable profits.
