Crypto market is not yet recovered from Christmas hangover with red domination

The crypto market is not yet recovering from the Christmas hangover with red dominates the top 100 coins. 


Crypto market hasn’t shown any positive moves from its previously reported negative state. Red, sadly, still dominates the top 100 coins, with hints of green from few coins such as, Tether (USDT), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Dogecoin (DOGE), and Eternal Token (XET).

Total market cap according to Coinmarketcap is $128,055,639,366.

Top 10

The largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin (BTC) is valued at $3,804 after experiencing -1.83% in the last 24 hours. Sadly, there are other coins on the top 10 that are performing even worse than that, such as Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Stellar (XLM), and Litecoin (LTC) that are losing by 5.94%, 5.25% and 4.86% respectively.

The only good news comes from USDT that’s gaining by 0.16% at $1.02 price point.

The top 3 biggest losses are experienced by DEX, Polymath (POLY) and Stratis (STRAT) that are losing by 18.8%, 13.03% and almost 12% respectively.

Tether's still in top 10. Suck it, you stupid fuckwits who were predicting the opposite.
Once again, you can only rely on your own knowledge and intuition.
