Today we have some major coins from the crypto market that are holding up or even rising significantly. However, the vast majority of altcoins continue to bleed. May remains a tough month for the market so far and trading volumes continue to decline. The total market capitalization of crypto drops 0.5% to $1.171 trillion.
– Lower liquidity thanks to pull back of trading firms like Jump, Jane Street
– Sell in May and go away
– Crypto missing key settlement, banking rails w Signature, Silvergate et al gone

Bitcoin price stuck below $27,000
Bitcoin (BTC) is holding up a little stronger than most altcoins today, but also turning red and hovering below $27,000. Volatility seems to be just around the corner, but more and more analysts seem to fear a decline.

Despite this, long-term investors are still holding on to their BTC, and that’s a very good thing bullish sign for the long term. With a price of $28,865, bitcoin is down 0.7% today.
The total amount of #Bitcoin held by long-term holders is approaching its all-time high set in March. This shows that despite market uncertainty, the conviction of long-term Bitcoin holders for the asset remains unwavering. pic.twitter.com/SmyqhaoYWT

Ethereum back at the same price
Ethereum (ETH) is once again recovering stronger than bitcoin this morning, despite the price being less volatile lately. ETH briefly dipped to $1,790 but has since recovered to $1,817, the same price as 24 hours ago.
About 2.2 million #ETH staked so far in May, setting a new monthly record. 🚀

Crypto top 10 in the red again
Binance coin (BNB) is also recovering this morning, but is still down 0.7% today at $308.7. Ripple (XRP) seems to find support again at $0.46, but is already down 1.7% at $0.462. Dogecoin (DOGE) is down 1.8% today at $0.072. Litecoin (LTC) is also 1.8% in the red and ends at $91.3. Polygon (MATIC) is down 1.9% to $0.86. However, Solana (SOL) is suffering the most, falling 2.2% to $19.85.
Cardano is skyrocketing this morning
Still, we have two green exceptions at the top today. The first is cardano (ADA), which just spiked all the way to $0.374. The price is currently holding at $0.37 and is therefore up 1.5% today.
291 POLISH HAVE VOTED! Will we break 300 today? 🤔💭https://t.co/y4vDChw6kN
Option D still in the lead, while Option A not far behind 👀🗳️🏁

Tron is the big winner of the day
Then we have the big highlight of the day: tron (TRX). The TRX price already made a big jump yesterday afternoon and again this morning. TRX shoots to $0.0779 through a short squeeze and is up no less than 7.5% today.
Traders could tell there was plenty of fuel for a #Tron short squeeze because of the large spike in Open Interest.
Coupled with the aforementioned negative funding rates shorts made themselves an easy target. https://t.co/vpBCD8l5vj pic.twitter.com/WYcH8uMGtA

Pepe also continues to bleed
On the other hand, however, we have enough red prices in the top 100 today. The biggest losers are two newcomers: sui (SUI) and again pepe (PEPE). Both rates are down 7.5% today.
The SmartMoney who made 1,219 $ETH($2.2M) on $PEPE sold all $PEPE with breakeven 8 hrs ago.
He sold 1.33T $PEPE for 1,162 $ETH($2.115M) at a price of $0.000001595.https://t.co/BOiRATC4rn pic.twitter.com/MdYnv6bKss
