The market conditions have, yet again, become choppy. On one hand, the FTX-Binance saga has not been showing any signs of cooling down. On the other, bears have already started gaining control, thanks to the rampant sell-spree.

The global cryptocurrency market cap had dropped by 3.73% to $984.79 billion on Tuesday. Top assets like Bitcoin and Ethereum—on their part—went on to create new November lows. Liquidations spiked up and long traders, resultantly, had to bear the brunt.

ETH’S dominance in the crypto market

Leaving aside macro-rankings, ETH has been losing its foot in the crypto market as well. From mid-September’s 20%, Ethereum’s market cap dominance has already shrunk down to 18.4%.

At press time, ETH’s price was down by 6% on the daily. Owing to the dip, the second largest crypto asset was seen exchanging hands at $1486.
