Bitcoin has added 2% in the past 24 hours to $21,400. Ethereum added 4.6% to $1640, while top altcoins added between 0.9% (Dogecoin) and 4.4% (Polkadot).
Total cryptocurrency market capitalization, according to CoinMarketCap, rose 2.2% to $1.03 trillion overnight. The Cryptocurrency Fear and Greed Index fell 3 points to 25 by Wednesday and went from "fear" to "extreme fear".
Unlike stock indices, Bitcoin has not fallen but has appeared as if it is disconnected from the market, having reached an equilibrium between the sell-off lows of late July at $20.5K and $22.5K.

CoinShares strategy director Meltem Demirors believes that because of the holiday season, we should not expect significant changes in the cryptocurrency market until the end of September.

Developers of the Dogecoin Foundation have reported that a DOGE-ETH bridge will be launched by the end of the year to move DOGE from the Dogecoin blockchain to the Ethereum network and back again.
