Moreover, Bitcoin’s recent price behaviour has adversely affected almost all altcoins adversely. As literally all the mainstream tokens are red, during the day. Altcoin in the top 10 list, ETH, BNB, ADA, XRP, SOL and DOGE are currently down 3.68%, 2.55%, 5.93%, 3.98%, 4.06%, and 4.49%, respectively.
