As Bitcoin (BTC) price crossed over the $50k mark in the past 24 hours for the first time since the onset of the 2022/2023 bear market, the altcoin industry joined in the dance. According to the latest market data, the total crypto market cap gained around 4 percent to hover about $2 trillion on Tuesday during the early Asian session.
