The bulls keep sight on 9746 following a symmetrical triangle breakout on a 15-minutes chart.  The most dominant cryptocurrency was last seen trading around 9670, with a market capitalization of $178.23 billion. The rebound in Bitcoin is boding well for the underlying sentiment across the crypto space.

The buyers remain hopeful amid a broad crypto market recovery, as the weekend love seems to seep in. The spot is back on the 240 handle and outperforms Bitcoin and Ripple, looking to settle the week with 4.50% gains.
  • Ripple (XRP/USD) appears to lack a bullish follow-through and consolidates in familiar ranges just above the 20 handle.
