The 24-hour Bitcoin (BTC) price has remained relatively stable trading above $4,000 level for a few consecutive days, but it has failed to hit the key resistance level at $4,200. At press time BTC/USD is trading at $3,962, with a market cap of $69.787 billion and the dominance of 50.9%.
Some other tokens, including Tezos (XTZ), Ravencoin (RVN), BitShares (BTS), Maximine Coin (MXM) registered massive gains ranging between 5% – 30% before another decrease. At press time XTZ is trading at $0.663 (-7.21% 24h), RVN is at $0.049342 (-15.37%), BTS is changing hands at $0.057145 (-6.98%) and MXM is trading at $ $0.096781 (-1.36), according to the data by coinmarketcap.
If the BTC price continues surging in the future above the key $4,000 level, some crypto traders see tokens showing considerable gains.
Last months, many digital currencies including Cardano (ADA), Litecoin (LTC) and Binance Coin (BNB), together with other small coins, have surpassed Bitcoin by a very big margin. The big upside price shift of LTC is purported to have happened because of the successful integration of different privacy features into the LTC blockchain network by its developer.
Fungibility is the only property of sound money that is missing from Bitcoin & Litecoin. Now that the scaling debate is behind us, the next battleground will be on fungibility and privacy.
I am now focused on making Litecoin more fungible by adding Confidential Transactions.

Also, ADA, which recently released its 1.5 mainnet, soared from $.0401 to $0.063 which is over 55%. The surge in the price of ADA may be due to the recent open-source integration of Stellar Lumens (XLM).
In addition, after the announcement of the Binance team on the BNB Launchpad coin sale format, the price of BNB surged close to 13%.
