This is the 2nd consecutive day that Bitcoin has moved down, and the coin’s trend over the past two weeks is down.

Alternatively, for those interested in trading ranges that Bitcoin bounces between, its current two-week trading range in US dollars is between $8,667.47 and $9,643.51. In terms of its overall importance in the cryptocurrency market, Bitcoin’s current market capitalization is $155.5 billion US dollars, which is about 65.71% of the market capitalization of all cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin’s dominance has been trending down slightly, averaging a fall of -0.21% each day over the past two weeks. A fall in dominance may suggest a growing opportunity for investing in other coins, and thus multiple cryptocurrencies may end up succeeding.
