Bitcoin price moves dramatically as market follows Musk’s cues
ETH goes parabolic against BTC ahead of EIP-1559
Sellers are in short supply for ETH, which is currently driving the cryptocurrency market.
The cryptocurrency market has shaken off a flash crash overnight and is back to near break-even, with its total market capitalization currently sitting just under $2.4 trillion. The market continues to be driven by ETH, which is up nearly 9% over the past 24 hours — in spite of a 3.4% decline for BTC.
On the altcoin front, DOGE is once again pumping. The meme-friendly coin is up more than 25% over the past 24 hours. Additionally, LTC has also broken to the upside — surging 13.4% over the same period.
DeFi market hits new top above $75 billion
The total value locked in decentralized finance has hit a temporary top above $75 billion after surging higher alongside the price of ETH. Polygon, previously known as Matic Network, is leading the charge after its TVL surged over recent weeks.
On the decentralized-exchange front, top-ranked Uniswap is having the best day after gaining 12.28% in total value locked — significantly more than Curve Finance's and SushiSwap's respective 1.97% and 0.69% gains.

BTC technical analysis: Not much to write home about
There was a time when the price of BTC was exciting and that of ETH was boring, but the roles have reversed. The market-leading cryptocurrency has chopped down through the ribbon of exponential moving averages on the four-hour time frame and continues to trade in horizontal confines.
