There was a resurgence in the cryptocurrency market on October 26 as Bitcoin’s (BTC) price climbed above $20,000 for the first time in weeks, and Ethereum’s (ETH) price rose above $1,500 for the first time since the post-merge crash; meanwhile, the market as a whole looks set to surpass $1 trillion.

Specifically, the value of the cryptocurrency market increased by $66 billion in the last twenty-four hours, rising from $928 billion on October 25 to $994 billion.

Indeed, the market capitalisation is just $6 billion away from exceeding $1 trillion, which is the closest it has been to recapture the level in nearly six weeks, with the market cap having last been above the psychological $1 trillion threshold on September 14.

Bitcoin hits the highest level since mid-September

Bitcoin reached its highest levels since the middle of September as the most prominent digital currency is getting closer and closer to the critical $21,000 barrier, trading at $20,649. What started as a siege on the $20,000 level then continued throughout the day, with liquidations climbing further after having already sealed the year’s largest shorts obliteration.
