General Market Outlook

After yesterday’s $1,000 spike Bitcoin (BTC) has continued an up trend. This has had massive effect on Altcoins. Crypto social media is flooded with “Alts are back!” Indeed, Altcoins are in the green across the board on most exchanges. One major example is Golem, their beta platform was released earlier this week, and has been received well – price of GNT is up over 65% in the past 24 hours.

The overall cryptocurrency market cap value is in a strong up trend, corresponding to the movement of Bitcoin (BTC) and Altcoins. This is indicative of new money entering the market, rather than movement of BTC holders to Altcoins.
