The price of Bitcoin ( BTC) has continued its upward push over the past 24 hours and is now trading above 12,100 USDT on OKEx.

As was the case yesterday, many major altcoins are failing to keep pace with the market leader. The price of Ether (ETH) is up less than 1% and Chainlink (LINK) is down nearly 3%. Polkadot (DOT) and Cardano (ADA), meanwhile, are both pushing losses upward of 2%.

The sustained BTC price increase has helped push the total cryptocurrency market capitalization up another 2.4% to $376,946,333,289, according to CoinGecko. BTC dominance is also rising quickly. After adding another 1% over the past 24 hours, the metric now sits at 59.9%.

Despite some traditional-market participants holding on to hopes of a stimulus deal coming to fruition before the United States presidential election, European stocks slid lower this morning, though U.S. stock futures rose overnight.
