Altcoins seize the moment as green candles return

It’s green again at the top end of the large-caps, but the big movements are happening among the altcoins. The prices of Solana, Avalanche, and Polkadot are all up by more than 7% over the past 24 hours. 

Bitcoin and Ethereum markets seem to have settled for now, both inching upwards by 0.9% and 1.8%, respectively. The Fear and Greed Index is also climbing into neutral territory as sentiment has improved throughout the week.

Crypto ETFs are in the news again, with Reuters reporting that the SEC could approve an Ethereum ETF by 4 July. Will this news, along with VanEck's Solana ETF filing, impact markets next week? Let’s see.
