  • BTC/USD is creeping towards critical resistance of $9,000.
  • Altcoins are moving higher in sync with the first digital asset.

The cryptocurrency market has entered a range-bound phase consolidating exiting gains of the weekend.  While Bitcoin and the majority of top-20 altcoins have retreated from the intraday highs, the overall trend remains clearly bullish. The total capitalization of all digital assets in circulation increased to $271 billion from $269 billion during Asian hours, while an average daily trading volume hit $91 billion by the time of writing.

The head and the co-founder of eToro Yoni Assia believes that the crypto spring is upon us.

“The spirit is back in the market. The bulls are still there. Bears didn’t kill the bulls yet, and I think we’re seeing somewhat of a revival,” he said in the interview with Crypto Potato.

His view is shared by many other industry experts, who prefer to stay cautiously optimistic.
