The bull market appears to have recovered and the charts are indicating a green straddle. The crypto market, which has been suffocating for a while, has finally registered a hasty soar in prices as 2018 comes to an end. On Thursday, December 21, several altcoins saw weighty price clusters, some almost registered double-digit surges.
The four biggest crypto gainers include Bitcoin cash - BCH, Bitcoin SV - BSV, Ethereum - ETH and Stratis - Strat. BCH, BSV and ETH fall in the top 10 cryptos and Strat is in 40th position according to coinmarketcap.
At press time, BCH is waxing by 51.5% over 24-hours with a market cap of $3.622 billion, and trading at around $206.
BSV is increasing by 32.88% (24h) with a market cap of $2.079 billion and is trading at $118.71.
ETH is shooting up by 11.02 percent over 24-hours, with a market cap of $11.812 billion and changing hands at $113.67.
Unfortunately, at press time, Strat has plunged by 4.19% and is trading at $1.31 with a market cap of $130 million. But on December 20, Strat was in the 36th rank and hit $1.30. Remember it last hit $1 on Monday, November 19, 2018. Because of the support from Binance traders, STRAT/BTC hit $24.85 million market cap and even traded at around $1.43.
The Wednesday, December 19 best performer, MonaCoin (MONA) is still showing positive signs. With the help of Bitbank traders, MONA reached around 84% on Wednesday and the trading pair of MONA/Yen saw its all-time-high of around $0.8745.
The giant charge taken by the digital assets led Bitcoin (BTC) to successfully break the $4,000 wall, tempting several crypto maniacs to predict the start of a fresh bull run. BTC is now trading at $4,032.
