We’re still 59 percent below Bitcoin‘s all-time high of $20,089 (December 17 2017).

Bitcoin’s market cap ended the day at $146,645,162,431. It now commands 69 percent of the total crypto market.

Yesterday’s volume of $31,672,559,265 was the highest in twenty days, 87 percent above the year’s average, and 29 percent below the year’s high. That means that yesterday, the Bitcoin network shifted the equivalent of 637 tons of gold.
