Bitcoin is currently (14:25 UTC) trading at 12,157. It’s up by nearly 3% in the last 24 hours and nearly 2% in the last week. Within several minutes after reaching the new high, it had started correcting lower, maintaining position just above USD 12,140.

Just a week ago, it hit USD 12,037, following a similar daily increase.

Prior to that, on August 2, it went to USD 12,041, and then crashed by USD 800 in minutes.

Meanwhile, the second coin by market capitalization and one of the best-performing crypto assets this year, ethereum (ETH), remains largely unchanged in a day and is up by 1% in a week, trading at USD 428.

At the same time, four other coins have outperformed bitcoin today: XRP, litecoin (LTC), bitcoin cash (BCH), and bitcoin SV (BSV) have increased between 4.6% and 2.6% during the last 24 hours.

The whole market capitalization is up by 2.37%, to USD 387.16 billion, while Bitcoin dominance stands at almost 58%.

Meanwhile, as reported, Grayscale, a major crypto asset management firm owned by Digital Currency Group, launched a national crypto ad campaign in the US last week, with CEO Barry Silbert tweeting on Friday that the firm just finished its “largest fundraising week EVER.”
