An overview of the developments in the cryptocurrency market going into Tuesday, April 20th. Bitcoin, Ethereum and the altcoins all post gains.

The cryptocurrency market is making a healthy recovery, surging to a total market size of $365 billion with Bitcoin dominance falling below 40% for the first time in months. Across the board, the top 10 cryptos are flashing green, but the best performer is Ripple - up around 20% on news of a new app with Santander bank.


Bitcoin dominance is declining (currently 38% of the market) as it struggles to keep up with the massive altcoin rally. The asset has started to gain ground after its surprise breakout on April 12 and stays steady at the $8,400 level. The bear market is officially over.
