Crypto News- Bitcoin’s surge past the $50,000 mark sparked a widespread rally across the crypto market, driving notable gains for alternative digital assets like Ethereum (ETH), Solana (SOL), and others.

Among the top 10 digital assets, Avalanche’s AVAX spiked by 6% to $41, Cardano’s ADA rose by 3.74% to $0.5574, and both BNB Coin (BNB) and Ripple’s XRP experienced more modest gains, each climbing by less than 3%.

Market analysts attribute this bullish momentum to the excitement surrounding the various spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in the US. Vetle Lunde, a senior analyst at K33 Research, highlighted the sustained strong inflows into these ETFs more than a month after their debut. BTC’s price crossed the $50,000 threshold for the first time since late 2021, marking a 4.2% increase to $50,146 as of press time, extending its positive trend which saw a 16% gain over the past week.

The market’s upward surge, however, led to significant liquidations totaling over $184 million from more than 56,000 traders, as reported by Coinglass data.
