In an exciting development, Bitcoin’s (BTC) price has reached and crossed the crucial $53,000 mark on February 26 according to new data. As a result, the global crypto market cap has now exceeded 2 trillion sitting at $2.05 trillion, representing a 3.54% increase in the last 24 hours.

With this new feat, Bitcoin has reached a new high since November 2021 after the last surge that pushed the price of the coin to its all-time high of $68k.

Meanwhile, Ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap has crossed the $3,000 mark trading at $3,153 according to Coinstats data. Ethereum has been on a steady upward trend for over 10 days, reaching the $3k price zone for the first time since March 2022.

Ether is the most likely next candidate to get a spot ETF approval given its dominant position in the cryptocurrency market. Even before the Bitcoin ETF approval by the United States SEC, there were rumors about it circulating the internet, and now there is more opportunity for ETH.

Other cryptocurrencies in the top 10 list including BNB, Solana (SOL), and Cardano (ADA) are also exhibiting impressive price growths. According to fresh data, BNB, SOL, and ADA have grown by 3.5%, 4.7%, and 4.5% respectively in the last 24 hours.

Meanwhile, a Swissblock crypto analyst pointed out that Bitcoin has finally broken out from the range it has been in since Feb. 15, adding that “all sails are set” and that “the momentum is moving up strongly.”

According to Coinstats data, Bitcoin is currently trading at $53,241 representing a 3.51% increase in the last 24 hours. Consequently, the market cap of the token has surged to $1,045,574,137,259 ($1.04 trillion) taking up more than 50% of the global crypto market cap.
