While Bitcoin network activity is on the hunt for records, the overall crypto market is evidence of rising capital inflows, pushing the crypto reserve currency back to $ 40,000.
The respite that the cops took after the exertion of strength of the last few weeks only lasted for a short time. With a 24-hour plus of over 9 percent, the Crypto Bank rate seamlessly picks up where it left off at the beginning of the week. At press time, the digital currency is trading at $ 38,379, putting itself back in position for an attack on the $ 40,000 mark.
Bitcoin price in the weekly chart
While the Bitcoin price is trying to bottom out above the symbolic key brand, almost the entire crypto market starts the trading day with good omens. During the day, the top 10 coins increase in value significantly, of which the DeFi coins Polkadot (DOT) and Chainlink (LINK) stand out at the top with price increases in the two-digit range.
With a strong dominance of 69 percent over Altcoins, the crypto draft horse Bitcoin is gradually leading the overall market back towards the all-time high. Overnight, in the wake of Bitcoin, total market capitalization once again passed the USD 1 trillion mark and is therefore only USD 10 billion below the preliminary high.
Bitcoin network activity
But also at network level, the indicators show a sustained growth trend. While the total market capitalization is only a few meters away from the all-time high, on-chain activity with around 1,343,000 actively used BTC addresses already set a new record high on January 6th. With over 1,100,000 addresses sending or receiving transactions, the value is still at the top level and underlines the extremely brisk trading activity on the Bitcoin blockchain.
