Commenting on the consolidation, Edul Patel, CEO and Co-founder of Mudrex, a global algorithm based crypto trading platform, said, “The past 24 hours witnessed Bitcoin and Ether toying with their crucial support and resistance levels. BTC hovered around the $46,000 level, and Ether fell below $3200 before settling.”

“Following this, we saw the crypto markets facing a minor consolidation. Among the Altcoins, the star performer of the day was Solana which shot up another 14 per cent,” he added.

“As the top cryptos are losing the steam and consolidating, we might witness another season for the Altcoins after the rally earlier this year.”
