For the second day in a row crypto markets have surged hitting a new 2019 high and a level not seen for ten months. Bitcoin has remained buoyed up and the altcoins are now revving up to boost total market capitalization up another $10 billion to $245 billion.

Bitcoin took a dive back to $7,700 a few hours ago but traders in Asia have lifted the king of crypto back over $8,000 again. BTC is currently trading level on the day at $8,030 and holding steady for now. Further gains are looking unlikely, but we said that when it crossed $6,000!

Ethereum is heating up today as Bitcoin starts to show signs of possible cooling. Rock bottom priced ETH surged 11 percent from an intraday low of just over $200 to just below $230 where it currently trades. This is the highest level Ethereum has seen for seven months as its market cap pushes past $24 billion.
