EOS Price Today – EOS / USD
What is the Price of Bitcoin Today?
After trading in an incredibly tight range between $4,000 and $4,100 through an extended period, Bitcoin (BTC) has managed to break downwards below its established support level. This is at the psychological level of $4,000.
Will Bitcoin recover? Analysts believe Bitcoin’s inability to establish stability above the $4,000 will eventually cause it to drop more in the near-term because dip buyers do not step in to push the crypto price up.
As of the time this content was published, Bitcoin (BTC) was trading down. It has lost 1% and is currently priced at $3,970 against the USD. The digital asset is down from its weekly high of $4,100. However, because the bulls still don’t have adequate buying pressure to force a Bitcoin bull run pushing it to trade above the low-$4,000 position, it is very likely that this price region will persist as a resistance level.
XRP is Top of the Log
As for Ripple’s native digital asset, XRP, after a slew of positive announcements, the digital currency topped the charts. Recently the network had announced global partnerships which comes as a positive for the overall space. EOS took the second spot. Surprisingly ahead of the almighty Bitcoin (BTC).

EOS Valuation Rose To $3.63 Billion Few Hours After Topping the Rankings
