Bitcoin (BTC) price has continued to consolidate in the past seven days as the spot ETF frenzy normalizes.

On the other hand, the number of Ethereum (ETH) with non-zero holdings has reached an all-time high (ATH) of around 114.95 million. 

Increased Demand for Altcoins

The interest in the altcoin market has continued to grow led by Ethereum and Binance Coin (BNB) from both retail traders and institutional investors. According to the latest data, ETH and BNB prices have gained around 2.3 percent and 5.2 percent respectively in the past 24 hours. On the other hand, Bitcoin price continued to consolidate around the horizontal range between $50,600 and $52,875.

Remarkably, the investors’ buying power through stablecoins has continued to gradually increase in the recent past. Furthermore, the number of stablecoin supply has risen significantly led by Tether USDT which has seen its non-zero addresses reach an all-time high of around 5.22 million holders.
