Bitcoin (BTC) Flirts with $27,000 Mark, XRP and Dogecoin (DOGE) Join the Party




The cryptocurrency market witnessed a remarkable recovery on Wednesday, with Bitcoin leading the way. The world’s largest cryptocurrency surged over 4% to trade at almost $27,000, despite the ongoing legal challenges faced by some of the major crypto exchanges. Bitcoin’s rally was accompanied by other popular cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum, XRP, and Dogecoin, which also posted significant gains.

Bitcoin’s impressive performance can be attributed to several factors, including its resilience in the face of regulatory uncertainty, its dominance in the crypto space, and its appeal as a hedge against inflation and currency devaluation. 

Post-Lawsuit Market Have Been Showing Promising Numbers 

According to Shubham Hudda, the Senior Manager at CoinSwitch Markets Desk, the crypto fear and greed index has also regained its position in the neutral territory, rising 9 points since June 6. He added that the crypto markets have shown strength by trading higher in the past 24 hours.

One of the major challenges that the crypto industry is facing is the crackdown by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on some of the leading crypto exchanges. The SEC’s actions have raised concerns about the future of crypto innovation and adoption in the US market.

However, some analysts believe that Bitcoin has benefited from the SEC’s actions, as it has prompted some crypto traders to return to dealing with Bitcoin, which is widely considered a non-security.


Moreover, some of the tokens that are under scrutiny by the SEC, such as Cardano, Polygon, and Solana, are seen as competitors to Bitcoin in terms of scalability and functionality. Therefore, Bitcoin may have gained an edge over these tokens as a result of the regulatory pressure.

Apart from Bitcoin, other cryptocurrencies also enjoyed a positive momentum on Wednesday. Ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, rose over 3.6% to $1,878.35. Ethereum is also the backbone of many decentralized applications and platforms that are driving innovation in the crypto space.

XRP, the native token of Ripple, also increased by 4.3% to $0.06959. XRP has been recovering from its slump caused by the SEC’s lawsuit against Ripple, which alleges that XRP is an unregistered security.

Dogecoin, the meme-inspired cryptocurrency that has gained popularity among retail investors and celebrities, also rose by 4.3% to $0.06959. Dogecoin has been boosted by its loyal fan base and its endorsement by influential figures.
