Some of the digital currencies even recorded double-digit gains. Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and XRP (XRP) – the first, second, and third largest coins by market cap, were also in the green.
However, the gains amassed by the world’s most dominant digital currency, whose dominance is now down to 50%, was very little. Bitcoin (BTC) traded in the green over the weekend with very little gains. The gains gathered by the digital currency over the week was not more than 2 percent.

Bitcoin (BTC) Price Today – BTC / USD
Bitcoin (BTC) has been facing a major hurdle on the upside. The digital currency has been trading within a tight range. Over the past few weeks, Bitcoin (BTC) has been unable to break over the $4,150 mark. The value of the coin has been within the range of $3,800 and $4,100.
