BTC/USD exploded to $10,007 before quickly dropping to $9,800. Another attempt by the bulls to finally climb above the crucial $10,000 resistance point. Unfortunately, it seems that we are going to have to wait a little longer. 

ETH/USD also had a significant price surge to $250 but failed and it’s now trading around $245. 

XRP/USD is the weakest of all the top cryptocurrencies and only had a small bull break to $0.0238 and it’s now trading at $0.202.

For the most part, the crypto market has been flat today as well until the recently failed breakout. Kyber Network is again the number one gainer today with a 36% price surge followed by Aave with a 16% price increase. Zilliqa is also in our list again with a 16% price surge trading at $0.027.
