The cryptocurrency market at the moment represents that of mixed trading. Bitcoin plunged to lows of $55,543 on Sunday. Bitcoin’s decline caused the majority of Altcoins to take a downturn. The declines in the crypto market extended into the earlier hours of Monday before a rebound occurred.
Three major reasons alluded to Bitcoin’s recent dip, first is the rise in treasury yields, then the bearish movements on Bitfinex and the struggle of the risk-on market contributed in a way to the lead asset’s declining momentum.
Amid the mixed trading reaction, selected Altcoins are posting impressive performances. XRP is up 12.85% in the last 24 hours as members of the XRP Army referring to supporters of the token have started an online movement to pressure crypto exchanges to relist the digital asset amid Ripple’s ongoing lawsuit with SEC.

Theta now ranks 11th largest cryptocurrency by market valuation and the biggest NFT token by market capitalization.
Another top Altcoin performer is Dent (DENT). DENT Coin, launched by DENT Wireless Limited is a cryptocurrency that promises to disrupt the mobile data industry in the world. Its sole aim is to tokenize the Mobile Data Industry and create a world-wide marketplace on Ethereum to sell and buy Mobile Data. The dent coin is a universal currency for data markets.
Denis Vinokourov, head of research at Trade the Chain noted that this decreasing trend suggests that markets are expecting sideways price action.
Bitcoin is lingering in a narrowing price range, with indecisiveness dominating with both bulls and the bears. Data also indicates that while there has been short-term selling pressure, these moves are not large enough to suggest that the market is anticipating a prolonged correction.
Bitcoin is trading down by 2.45% at $55,990.
