Market loses $6 billion during Easter Sunday, Litecoin and BNB down 7%

The last few hours have seen the largest losses in the last 6 days, when cryptocurrency prices had been rising and global market cap had taken a grip over the $170 billion price area.

At writing time, the same number has went down to about $167 billion, with all but a handful of projects in the top 100 cryptos in the red, according to data extracted from Tradingview, just like the rest of the numbers in this piece.

Bitcoin is showing quite some resilience in the middle of the current downtrend, having raised its market dominance to 55.5% from lows close to 52% on early April. Currently, it trades for around $5,280, down about 1% only in the last 24 hours posing itself once again as the best performing asset despite the rainy day on the top 10, and one of the least affected on the first 100 cryptos by market cap.

One of the few tokens in the green today is Basic Attention Token, up about 5%. Another project doing well is MonaCoin, with an increase in price of about 8%. On the other side, Enjin, Ravencoin and Siacoin are all packing losses nearing 10% of their price 24 hours ago. 

Litecoin (LTC) and Binance Coin (BNB) are the worst performing tokens in the top 10 by market cap, both of them with losses exceeding 7% at the time of publishing.
