Bitcoin Hits $20K, Ethereum Rises 12% as Crypto Market Cap Tops $1 Trillion

MARKET_WATCH Crypto

Ethereum reaches levels unseen since soon after the merge as the wider crypto market takes a break from the doldrums.


In brief : 

  •  
  • Bitcoin is back above $20,000 today, while ETH hit $1,500 for the first time since shortly after September’s merge.
  •  
  • Overall, the market is up 6% today and is back above $1 trillion again.
  •  

The cryptocurrency market is rebounding today as the price of Bitcoin topped $20,000 for the first time in weeks, Ethereum rose above $1,500 for the first time since the post-merge fallout, and the overall market topped $1 trillion after three weeks under that mark.

 

 

Bitcoin is currently up 5% on the day to a price of $20,322, per data from CoinGecko. Today marks the first time that the leading cryptocurrency’s price has topped $20,000 since October 7, according to the site, following weeks of relatively modest movement under that mark.

 

However, Ethereum is popping much higher today, up 12% over the past 24 hours to a current price of $1,500. It rose slightly higher to $1,507 before dipping, and marks the first time that Ethereum has reached the $1,500 milestone since September 15, when the price of ETH fell significantly following the network’s successful merge upgrade.

 

Other notable altcoins are up big today, as well, including Solana up 12% to nearly $32, Cardano rising 14% to $0.41, and Polkadot climbing almost 11% to $6.50 per token.

All told, the entire cryptocurrency market now has a total market cap of $1.03 trillion, per CoinGecko, up over 6% today. It’s the first time that the market has hit the $1 trillion mark since October 4.
