Bitcoin breaks $12K and still looking strong, Altcoins again lag behind

Today saw another solid pump for the Bitcoin price as it broke above $12,000 again and for now at least looks to be holding the level. Though as always there were some outstanding exceptions, many Altcoins couldn't keep pace with Bitcoin, again.

Top 10
The only coin out of the top 10 to not show green today was TRON, likely due to the unfortunate events earlier today involving the company, and is now down only -0.94% and currently at $0.034. Bitcoin itself was definitely leading here, but other solid coins were Litecoin (LTC), coming up 2.32% to $122.67, and Ethereum (ETH), with a 2.07% ascent to $311.61.
Biggest Winners/Losers
Looking to the top 100, we see more variety in action. As for downside, hardest hit was Komodo (KMD) now down -11.61% to $1.51, as well as Waltonchain (WTC) dropping -11.54% to $2.22. There was of course plenty of green, however, and for that Japan Content Token (JCT) was up 77.54% to $0.246 and Quant (QNT) saw a nice 31.92% upside to land at $15.21.
As we head deeper into the week, can Bitcoin keep up its growth? Or will Altcoins finally get their day in the sun?
