Crypto Market Cap Surges to $2 Trillion, Bitcoin Taps $52K as ETH Trades at $2.8K: This Week’s Recap

Summary:
The past seven days in the cryptocurrency market have been absolutely blasting. The total capitalization soared above trillion for the first time in a long while, as the entirety of the market charts considerable gains. Bitcoin seems to be ahead of the pack for the most part, charting an increase of more than 10% in the last week. At the time of this writing, the price hovers right around K, but it went above it on numerous occasions in the past 24 hours. The massive rally seems to be driven by consistently high inflows in spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds. It appears that the investment product is attracting massive interest, with over billion already being poured across a number of these products. BlackRock’s BTC ETF, somewhat expected, is leading the race.

The past seven days in the cryptocurrency market have been absolutely blasting. The total capitalization soared above $2 trillion for the first time in a long while, as the entirety of the market charts considerable gains.

Bitcoin seems to be ahead of the pack for the most part, charting an increase of more than 10% in the last week. At the time of this writing, the price hovers right around $52K, but it went above it on numerous occasions in the past 24 hours.

The massive rally seems to be driven by consistently high inflows in spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds. It appears that the investment product is attracting massive interest, with over $4 billion already being poured across a number of these products. BlackRock’s BTC ETF, somewhat expected, is leading the race. What is even more interesting is that gold ETFs are seeing outflows. Many people speculate that investors are turning to BTC instead.

The rest of the market is also well in the green.

Ethereum is trading at almost $2800, up 11% at the time of this writing. The cryptocurrency went above that price earlier this week, but today it seems that the market is in a slight correction.

BNB is up 10%, SOL is up 3.5%, XRP is up 7.1%, ADA is up 9%, and so forth. The entirety of the top 10 by means of total capitalization is trading well in the green.

This is happening more or less three months before the Bitcoin halving takes place in April. This is an event that has historically proven to be incredibly bullish. Coupled with increased inflows on behalf of ETF investors, many analysts and industry experts believe that it will have a positive impact on the market this time around as well.

If one thing is clear, it’s that the weeks ahead are likely to be packed with excitement.
