    The major crypto tokens were trading higher on Tuesday. The global cryptocurrency market cap was trading at around $1.05 trillion, rising 0.76% in the last 24 hours.

    Bitcoin was up 0.56% at $26,291 as of 11:58 a.m., while Ethereum rose 0.78% to $1,590.

    The crypto market has traded sideways with slight buying pressure. Continuing its oscillation between the neutral and fear zones, the crypto fear and greed index is back in the fear zone with a score of 46/100 after shedding off a point since yesterday. Markets at large, including crypto and even global equities, are currently dealing with the rate hike concerns and rising treasury yields, said Shubham Hudda, Senior Manager, CoinSwitch Markets Desk.

    Barring Solana, Toncoin, and Shiba Inu, all major crypto tokens were trading higher on Tuesday. BNB, XRP and Polygon gained up to 2%.

    The market cap of Bitcoin, the world's largest cryptocurrency, was around $512 billion. Bitcoin's dominance is currently 48.93%, according to CoinMarketCap.

    Meanwhile, BTC volume stood at approximately $10.46 billion, falling 0.45% in the last 24 hours.

    "Bitcoin continues to consolidate above $26,000 and is up ~2% this month. If it finishes in the green this week, it will mark the first time in seven years that Bitcoin didn’t have a decline in September. Key resistance level at $27,500 is the next target to breach to hold its price action," Vikram Subburaj, CEO of Giottus Crypto Platform, said.

    "Meanwhile, the US Dollar index, DXY, is showcasing strength – it is now above 106 from a low of ~100 two months back. This can negatively impact crypto asset prices in near term," Subburaj said.

    CoinDCX Research Team said, On a positive note, MicroStrategy's chair, Michael Saylor, announced that the company invested $147.3 million to acquire an additional 5,445 BTC on September 24. This new purchase brings MicroStrategy's total Bitcoin holdings to an impressive 158,245 coins. However, it's noteworthy that the BTC price didn't react much following this news.
