Let’s also Take a Look at an Astar Chart for Today…
As you can see from the chart above, Astar has also had a good day so far. It appears to be continuing to follow the Bitcoin up tick.
Bitcoin $20,000 briefly reappears
Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed BTC/USD spiking to $20,085 on the day, its best performance since June 30.
The pair had spent most of the holiday weekend at around $19,000, but the absence of Wall Street trading ultimately proved no obstacle for bulls.
Thinner weekend order books likely exacerbated volatility compared to underlying volumes, but nonetheless, Bitcoin was up 3% on the day at the time of writing.

“Bitcoin has successfully created Bullish Divergence on the Daily Time Frame for the first time since breaking below $20,000,” popular analyst Matthew Hyland noted.
On-chain analytics resource Whalemap meanwhile confirmed that whales buying coins at $19,200 had once again provided support for the market.

As Cointelegraph reported, whales had expressed a keen interest in levels immediately below $20,000, conspicuously not choosing to wait until much-vaunted levels at $16,000 and below appeared.
“Flipping $19.5K is a trigger for Bitcoin,” Cointelegraph contributor Michael van de Poppe added.
Altcoins meanwhile made the most of Bitcoin’s spike, with Ether (ETH) rising almost 6% to pass $1,100.
Others in the top ten cryptocurrencies by market cap broadly saw daily gains of around 5%.
