Yesterday was a fairly normal day for all of these cryptocurrencies, in the sense that they fluctuated within the normal daily range we have come to suspect them to move within. Technical traders may also wish to note the following developments in price action:

Insights From Transaction Data

Ripple recorded 880,642 transactions on its blockchain over the past 24 hours; that’s the best of the bunch, and about 28% over Ethereum, which had the second-most transactions recorded on its chain. Ripple has a transaction fee less than the transaction fee of Ethereum, which may indicate that transaction fees might be a key reason why users are preferring Ripple. Bitcoin was once again the coin with the largest transaction across all blockchains yesterday; the largest transaction on its chain was valued at $46,438,576 US dollars. Bitcoin continues to dominate the crypto market, with the total circulating value of its currency equal to approximately $211.39 billion US dollars. That’s about 69.3% of the value of all circulating cryptocurrencies. Note that Bitcoin’s dominance level has been in an uptrend, climbing from 64.12% to 69.3% over the past two weeks.
