Bitcoin’s market capitalisation as of yesterday was $212,114,842,612, down from $212,799,723,685 the day before. To put that into context, Jeff Bezos’s net worth is $196,000,000,000, which means he could only buy 92.40% of all Bitcoin. You can’t have everything, Jeff!


Fear and Greed Index

We’re down 3 points from 78 to 75, moving down from Extreme Greed to the general Greed zone. Extreme fear can be a sign that investors are too worried, which could be a buying opportunity. When Investors are getting too greedy, that means the market may be due for a correction.

Bitcoin's market dominance stands at 60.73. Its lowest recorded dominance was 37.09 on 8 January, 2018.


Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The daily RSI is currently 52.62. Values of 70 or above indicate that an asset is becoming overbought and may be primed for a trend reversal or experience correction in price – an RSI reading of 30 or below indicates an oversold or undervalued condition.
