How Are Altcoins Performing In Crypto Rally
In recent times, Bitcoin performed relatively stable and fluctuated in the $18k-$19K range. However, some of the altcoins continued to perform poorly and showed extreme volatility. Crypto investors will rejoice at the fact that the altcoins are driving today’s rally.
BNB Coin exploded by 5% in the last 24 hours and is trading at $289.67. Cardano (ADA) continues to show extreme strength in today’s rally. ADA is up by 14% in the last 24 hours and is trading at $0.4125.

Is The Bottom In
The crypto market was performing poorly due to unfavorable macroeconomic conditions. The Federal Reserve was combating the high inflation level through quantitative tightening and interest rate hikes. The dollar’s continued strength was also plummeting the crypto market.
However, as the dollar index fell today, the crypto market saw a strong rally.
Experts however are warning that the crypto bottom may not be in. The Federal Reserve still maintains an extremely hawkish stance and is likely to increase interest rates with another 75 bps hike.
The threat of further inflation due to the Russia-Ukraine war can also crash the crypto market.
