Crypto currency prices today were mixed with Bitcoin above $45,000 mark. The digital token was trading almost flat at $45,931.
The world's largest and most popular crypto currency is down about 0.6% in 2022 (year-to-date or YTD) so far. It is about 30% far away from its record high of near $69,000 it had hit in November last year.
On the daily timeframe, the BTC trend can be seen retesting the previous breakout level. The next resistance is expected at $48,600 and next support is expected at $34,200 level, said Siddharth Menon, COO of WazirX.
On the other hand, Ether, the coin linked to the ethereum blockchain and the second-largest crypto currency in terms of market capitalization, surged more than a per cent to $3,490. Meanwhile, Dogecoin price gained by nearly 4% to $0.14 whereas Shiba Inu was also trading over 2% higher at $0.000027.
With Ethereum transitioning to the Proof-of-stake (PoS) mechanism, the use cases for ETH will go up considerably and we could see its dominance against Bitcoin grow even stronger, Menon added.
