Ever since Bitcoin successfully surged past $5,000 a few weeks ago, it’s consistently been oscillating around that mark, going up and down as the days roll by. For example, in the last three days, it has dropped from $5,150 to $4980, rising again past $5,220.
There has also been very involved Bitcoin trading movement which is expected to push the price higher if it does continue like this. At the moment, Bitcoin still sits over $5,200.

At the moment, Bitcoin SV (BSV) is having serious issues after Binance officially delisted it from their platform. Shortly after Binance made their decision public, Erik Voorhees who is the CEO of Swiss-based Shapeshift also announced their decision to delist BSV.
Currently, Bitforex has followed suit after an online vote saw more than half of over 50,000 respondents voting to delist the asset. Other platforms who have announced a similar decision include Bitrue, Bittylicious, Bitcoinrewards and Cryptorader. Due to all the problems faced by the coin, the price has fallen considerably.
The current Market Cap reads at $177.7 billion with a 24hr Volume of $40.6 billion with Bitcoin (BTC) consistently controlling more than half of the market as its dominance is 52.1% of the over two thousand cryptocurrencies currently available in the market.
The crypto market, in general, isn’t where it used to be years back because it has obviously seen better days. However, the general mood around customers, exchanges, investors, and stakeholders isn’t too apprehensive and does seem somewhat calm. Only time will tell how long this calm will last.
