• BTC/USD set the new high of 2019 amid strong bullish momentum.
  • Altcoins are also growing strongly amid positive fundamentals.

Cryptocurrency market rallied strongly during late Sunday hours and extended the upside on Monday. The total capitalization of all digital assets in circulation jumped to $269 billion, while an average daily trading volume hit $90 billion by the time of writing. 

As the signs of the upcoming mass adoption pile up, the market is more inclined to buy a cryptocurrency and embrace the digital future of money.

"Easier to spend means a greater-use case and a greater level of adoption. The tipping point is likely very close now," Mati Greenspan from eToro commented, as cited by Bloomberg.
