The past week has been a fair one for most cryptos. Most recorded new amazing highs and some recorded new jaw-dropping lows. The crypto grandaddy, on the other hand, bitcoin (BTC) has been retesting the $50,000 waters. Coupled with the passing of the new $1.9 trillion stimulus bill in the US on 7th March, reports from analysts have already begun to pour in predicting an imminent bull run on its end.
The top five cryptocurrencies by market cap starting the week are bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Tether (USDT), Cardano (ADA), and Binance Coin (BNB). Out of these five, only the first two maintained green charts. With BTC recording a mere 0.67% increase and ETH recording a little of 10%.
