Dogecoin Jumps 8%
Dogecoin pumped almost immediately after Elon Musk’s most recent announcement regarding Twitter. This resulted in an 8% surge for the cryptocurrency and put it at the top of today’s performance list among altcoins.
Bitcoin Slips Below $23K
After failing to break past the $24,000 mark yesterday, bitcoin took a dive and dropped by over $1,500 at one point. This sent BTC below its previous high of mid-August 2022 and brought its value down to around $23,000. Despite this dip in price however, January 2023 is still en route to becoming bitcoin’s best performing month in over a year as it rose from about $17,000 at the start of the year.
Altcoins In The Red
Most altcoins have followed bitcoin’s lead today and have ended up in the red too – just like they were yesterday before Dogecoin started surging upwards.
January A Success For Bitcoin
Despite today’s drop in price for bitcoin, January 2023 is still set to become its best performing month since August 2022 as BTC has risen by 40% since the start of 2021.
Dogecoin Emerges As Top Performer
Following news on the Twitter front, Dogecoin emerged as today’s top performer amongst all altcoins by jumping 8%.
