Following many days of precipitous declines, the price of bitcoin had a roughly two-fold boost following the Federal Reserve's decision not to raise interest rates, but it promptly declined again.

Today, the cryptocurrencies are in much better form because to several noteworthy gains made by projects like PEPE, Ripple, Polkadot, ICP, and Solana.

The Volatility of Bitcoin Remains

The main cryptocurrency was trading steadily above $60,000 and was even set to test the $65,000 mark just a few days ago. That occurred on April 30 during the early hours of Asian trading.

Nevertheless, it was unable to surpass that threshold and began to steadily lose value as a result of significant withdrawals from US ETFs and the underwhelming introduction of those based in Hong Kong. With bitcoin plunging further lower to a two-month low of $56,500 on Wednesday and more than $500 million in liquidations, the situation got worse.

At that time, everyone was waiting to see what the US Federal Reserve would decide about interest rates. Bitcoin's price increased by two thousand and approached $60,000 after the US central bank announced that there would be no more hikes.

But it was unable to continue its upward trajectory and returned to its initial position. The current value of Bitcoin is around $58,000, and its market capitalization is $1.140 trillion. However, its 50% advantage over the alternatives has suffered a serious blow.

Solace for Altcoins

In the last few days, altcoins have lost exactly as much as bitcoin, if not more, but most have recovered better, showing more notable increases currently.

On a daily basis, Solana is among the best performers. SOL is trading at $130, up 11.5%. PEPE has increased by sixteen percent, and SHIB, DOT, ADA, XRP, AVAX, MATIC, and ICP have all increased by six to twelve percent.

The entire value of the cryptocurrency market has recovered from its low point yesterday by over $50 billion. As a result, the CG metric is getting close to $2.3 trillion.
