After a few days of weakness, the crypto market zoomed past the $1.1 trillion mark between 10-11 August, 2022 – thanks to extremely positive CPI inflation data from the United States. For the first time in several months, consumer price index (CPI) data from the US has seen a decline over a month on month period, instead of a rise, bringing the CPI down to 8.5% for the month of July. This bodes extremely well for risky assets which include cryptos and even equities – which is why even US indices saw rapid recoveries in yesterday’s trading session. The tech focused Nasdaq managed to close up about 2.8%, with S&P500 touching 2.3% while Dow Jones closed up about 1.6%. It looks like US Federal Reserve’s actions to increase interest rates to clamp down on scorching inflation might be working well!
On the crypto front, global crypto market cap also rallied nearly 7% in the past 24 hours, bringing the total up to about $1.16 trillion. According to CoinMarketCap, The total crypto market volume over the last 24 hours is $89.67 billion, which makes a 30.23% increase.
The total volume in DeFi is currently $8.78 billion, 9.80% of the total crypto market 24-hour volume. The volume of all stable coins is now $83.05 billion, which is 92.62% of the total crypto market 24-hour volume.

In line with the broader market cap, Bitcoin prices saw a major jump in prices too, over 7% and is currently trading well above $24,500. This puts the overall crypto market and BTC prices back in the safe zone after seeing some weakness on the charts in the past couple of days.
Ethereum prices also managed to showcase an incredible rally, up over 12% in the past 24 hours – and currently trading just shy of the $1900 mark. With ETH prices trudging ever so closer to the $2000 mark amid the recent rally in the crypto market, we are also seeing major follow-up recovery in most of the large altcoins as well, take a look.
A look at these top 15 cryptos by market cap gives a very clear indication how positively all of the largest altcoin prices in the market have reacted to the recent jump. Solana (SOL), Polkadot (DOT) and Uniswap (UNI) managed to gain the most in this list, managing to bring in double digit returns in the past 24 hours. The likes of memecoins such as Dogecoin (DOGE) and Shiba Inu (SHIB) also managed to gain almost 5% each respectively.
However, some other relatively smaller altcoins managed to record even bigger gains in the past 24 hours, like the Lido DAO Token (LDO) which managed to gain over 20% in this timeframe. Other major gainers include Aave, Synthetic (SNX), THORChain (RUNE) and VeChain (VET) managed to sustain well over double digit gains over the past day.
Consequently, as one would expect, none of the major cryptos out of the top 100 lost anything significant amid the this major rally - as of writing this article.
