With coin movements growing more significant by the day, more and more traders are now getting into the cryptoverse.

It is evident from the graph above that Bitcoin has been on a roller coaster ride lately. BTC recorded a 24-hour dip of 5.11% and was priced at $10,178.31, at press time, with a market cap of $182.07 billion.

The global adoption of digital assets has pushed the interest of investors towards the king coin. Even with the volatile nature of the digital gold, heavy returns are attracting more investors. Also, this heavy inflow of capital into the market has raised the market cap too, as investors have started to understand the monetary value of Bitcoin. One crypto enthusiast, @Woonomic, commented on Twitter,

“As BTC grows in market cap [attracting more mainstream or macro investors looking for exposure, instead of early adopters], we can see its correlation with GLD is increasing [grey] and its correlation to USD strength is decreasing [blue].”
