Bitcoin Eyes $11,000 As Altcoins Continue To Bleed Against It: Crypto Market Watch

Bitcoin price has taken an interesting turn today, as the cryptocurrency, for the first time in almost two weeks, broke the resistance levels of $10,200 and $10,500 and is heading for $11,000. At the time of writing, BTC is exchanging hands at $10,779. 

What makes the new bullish run even more interesting is that BTC Dominance, the index which measures its relative share in the overall market cap, has surged to about 66.4%. This has left altcoins hanging in the dry once again as most of them suffer against Bitcoin.

Only ETH and BCH followed Bitcoin in its positive price spike against the USD today while other major coins in the top ten rankings suffered losses between 1% and 2% on the daily chart.
