Weekly crypto price analysis 18th Dec: BTC, ETH, XRP, BNB, ADA, DOGE

Cardano price analysis

TL;DR Breakdown

  • Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies have given back their gains despite cooling inflation.
  • Our weekly crypto price analysis shows the overall market is in a state of equilibrium.
  • The total market capitalization has decreased by 6.11 percent to $797.45 billion, while most of the altcoins shed their gains.

According to our weekly crypto price analysis, the cryptocurrency market is taking a much-needed breather, as the bulls have retreated. According to our weekly crypto price analysis for 26th November, the crypto market seems to be trading in a consolidation phase. Bitcoin is holding above $16,000, but still, it has not shown any sign of a breakout.

After jumping to one-month highs, BTC price action, as well as that of major altcoins, has reversed downwards. Amid the current market sentiment, Hong Kong’s first bitcoin and ether futures exchange-traded funds (ETFs) ended their first trading day higher on Friday, reflecting investors’ interest despite the broader crypto market meltdown.

This time around, however, there is plenty for crypto investors to worry about — beyond macro, the FTX saga rolls on, with concerns around Binance also lingering. The DeFi sector has also been hit hard by the market downturn, and many projects have seen their tokens lose value.
