Binance Weekly Report: Blockchain Week Coming Soon
2021-1-15

In this weekly report (January 9 to 16, 2021): We introduced the Binance Blockchain Week, informed our users about Binance Luquid Swap and highlighted how our Binance Brokers enhanced their businesses with our help.


Crypto Market Overview: Correction Week

After Bitcoin’s $41,950 all-time high late last week, the world’s top cryptocurrency underwent significant fluctuations this week. BTC went as low as $32,900 on Monday, before rebounding to $39,700 on Thursday and ending the week at around $36,700.

Altcoins also closely followed Bitcoin’s price action this week. After setting a multi-year high of $1,345 on Sunday, Ethereum fell as low as $960 on Tuesday before settling at $1,140 to close the week. BNB set an all-time high of $45.12 on Sunday, before sinking to $36.53 on Tuesday, before ending the week at $40.50.

In addition, the rankings among the top cryptocurrencies have changed significantly this week. Tether (USDT) has toppled XRP (XRP) for the No. 3 spot, while Polkadot (DOT) and Cardano (ADA) have overtaken Litecoin (LTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) as the No. 5 and No. 6 spots, respectively.

The global crypto market cap reached a new high of $1.117 trillion on Sunday, but fell as low as $831 billion on Tuesday before regaining its trillion-dollar status on Thursday.
