Every major altcoin is currently in the green (except for the native cryptocurrency of the Terra blockchain).

Cardano (ADA) is leading the pack with a 7.8% price spike. The cryptocurrency is now inching closer to the much-coveted $1 mark.

Polkadot (DOT), another Ethereum killer, is up almost 7% over the past 24 hours.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is up more than 8% amid reports that Sint Marteen may be working to adopt the controversial Bitcoin fork as legal tender.

Dash (DASH), which was once among the leading cryptocurrencies, is finally having its moment, surging by more than 14%. Still, the cryptocurrency is only in 69th place.

Ethereum Classic (ETC), Algorand (ALGO) and EOS (EOS) have also recorded double-digit price increases, leading the broader crypto market.

Bitcoin’s market dominance currently stands at 42.1%. Ethereum accounts for 18.7% of the total crypto market valuation.
