Altcoins Report Big Gains, Bitcoin Price Loses $20M in Trades

Today's jobs report powered the DXY jump, along with the plummet of risk-on assets.

After the better-than-expected payroll data, some major altcoins are recovering from the dump while BTC still posts minor losses.

CryptoNews in @COIN360com Daily Digest:

2/ BTC soared over 17,000 right ahead of the jobs report, but in response to the strong data indicating a smaller chance of the Fed's dovish move, it suffered a drop of 1.5% to 16,800 immediately.

BTC then recovered a bit to 16,900, marking a 0.15% drop in the past 24h.

3/ ETH followed TC’s price action with a plunge of 1.4% after the jobs report. The coin then bounced back slightly higher than where it was at the beginning of Friday.
