The crypto market cap rose 4.5% over 24 hours to $2.56 trillion, roughly where it was a week ago, with an active rally over the last three days.

Bitcoin is up 4.7%, and Ethereum is up 4.3% in 24 hours. Their momentum has encouraged even more robust growth in smaller coins. Dogecoin is up 15% in 24 hours and 100% in 30 days, Solana is up +9.5% and 86%, and BNB remains stronger at +6.7% and 54% respectively.


Bitcoin rose to $67.1K, a third day of strength from an area near the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the rise from the January lows to the March highs. The correction from the peak has removed overbought conditions on a daily timeframe, making room for growth and easing the psychological impact on potential buyers as many are more comfortable buying the asset after a drawdown.

The fundamental development of this pattern suggests further growth towards the previous high of $73.7K. If it is successfully breached, the next target for growth could be $95.5K.
