Amidst Bitcoin’s lackluster price performance and a retracement in the broader altcoin market, Akash Network’s AKT Token has surged by 12% in a single day to become a new representative among the top 100 altcoins.

Dominance of Bitcoin over the altcoin market has increased to over 48% in the past 24 hours due to the retracement of several other altcoins.

Bitcoin’s Stagnation and Dominance

Bitcoin’s price has remained relatively stagnant, hovering around $26,000. While its market cap has stayed close to $510 billion, its dominance over the altcoin market has risen by almost half a percentage point within a day. This increase in dominance is attributed to the retracement observed among various altcoins.

BTC’s Recent Volatility

Reports of Elon Musk’s SpaceX selling off its remaining Bitcoin holdings prompted a significant drop in Bitcoin’s price from over $28,500 to $25,300, resulting in a two-month low, highlighting recent market volatility.

Bitcoin initially recovered some ground but settled around $26,000 by the weekend, where it has remained relatively stagnant.

Bitcoin price Volatility and AKT Token Surge

Many altcoins also witnessed a sharp decline during the market sell-off, struggled to recover during the weekend, and continue to experience retracements. Further, Altcoins like Binance, Cardano, Polkadot, Polygon, Shiba, Avalanche, and LEO have seen declines ranging from 2%- 3% within a day.

Notably, MATIC has faced the steepest drop of over 4%.

However, while most altcoins are in the red, a few have managed minor gains. Litecoin is among the few alts with slight gains over the past 24 hours. Ocean Protocol (OP) is a larger-cap altcoin that has notably gained around 4% within the same timeframe.
