Over the past week, the cryptocurrency market has witnessed an impressive rise, highlighted by the robust performance of Bitcoin (BTC) and the price momentum of several large-cap altcoins. Following the trend, Bitcoin showed its resilience, remaining above US$69,000 after a series of intense fluctuations in the market.

Bitcoin, which had already struggled to stay above $66,000 the previous Sunday, saw its price fluctuate before a notable recovery. Driven by positive expectations related to the approval of Ethereum ETFs in the United States, BTC almost touched the $72,000 mark for the first time in six weeks. Despite this peak, it faced subsequent pullbacks, falling to US$66,400, but recovered, closing the week close to US$69,000.

Meanwhile, Ethereum (ETH) showed significant gains, jumping from $3,100 to over $3,900, its highest value since the beginning of April. Volatility continued, however, the second largest cryptocurrency ended the week close to US$3,820, after an increase of 22%.

In addition to Ethereum, other cryptocurrencies such as DOGE, LINK and APT also had outstanding performances, however, Uniswap (UNI) and PEPE were the ones that attracted the most attention. UNI, in particular, saw a 44% jump in its price, while PEPE recorded multiple record highs during the week.

In contrast to these gains, SOL, TRX, TON and ADA faced setbacks, closing the week in negative territory. Despite this, the total value of the cryptocurrency market exceeded US$2.7 trillion, with an increase of more than US$200 billion in the week.

Over the weekend, the environment was relatively calm, but Bitcoin managed to maintain the level of US$69,000, with its dominance in the cryptocurrency market reaching 50.3%.
