Cryptocurrency Crash: Value Of All Digital Currencies Drops Below $3 Trillion

The market capitalization of all cryptocurrencies has dropped significantly over the last 24 hours, but it’s not time to panic just yet. Unlike traditional assets, digital currencies are more volatile and can recover quickly.

Now is the perfect time to invest in cryptocurrency before the price jumps again!

The market capitalization of the 10,000 crypto assets in existence also dropped below $3 trillion to $2.77 trillion on Tuesday morning (EST).

Bitcoin’s price fell below the $60K handle on Tuesday after hitting $66K on Monday, reaching a low of $58,563 per unit. The price has since recovered some losses, increasing back above the $60K range, and has shown some consolidation.

The Bitcoin Market Cap Has Shed Billions Of Dollars In The Last 24 Hours!

In the last 24 hours, the market capitalization of the entire crypto-economy has shed billions of dollars. Bitcoin (BTC) has dropped 7.5% today, and it has fallen 10.2% for the week.

Ark36 Executive: ‘Drop Results in a Leverage Shakeout Which Contributes to a Healthier Market’

Mikkel Morch, the chief executive officer of the crypto assets hedge fund Ark36, told News that the drawdown is normal as bitcoin, ethereum, and other crypto markets suffer deep losses.

The bitcoin price has yet again defied expectations, as it did last week when it hit an all-time high near $69K. Investors expected the trend to continue immediately after the price reached the all-time high.

Instead, we saw a largely sideways trend culminating in an almost 8% drop yesterday. Following the sweeping wave of enthusiasm last week, a price decrease is surprising or even concerning.” Morch continued:

Nonetheless, keeping in mind that an 8% drawdown in the crypto markets is considered normal is crucial.

Presently, the overall market structure remains largely bullish. A sudden drop in price results in a shakeout of leverage, which contributes to a healthier market poised for an uptrend in the medium term.

Bitcoin Market Predictions: What Should I Expect In The Next Few Months

Several factors indicate that the bitcoin market is currently in a bearish phase, according to Huobi Global.

On Tuesday, Huobi Global told News, “All EMAs are steeply downward, the Bollinger band has been significantly expanded, the current indicators show a high bearish sentiment in the market.”

Huobi added, from the daily level, BTC is now in a long downward trend, the short-term uptrend is broken, the daily volume has increased, the short-term trend may continue to move downward.

Huobi reported that Ethereum (ETH) market signals indicate a “high bearish sentiment in the market” in a similar market outlook report.

 ETH/USD chart indicators using a 4-hour time frame show EMAs and the K-line are all running downhill.

According to Huobi Global’s bitcoin and ethereum market outlook, the upside channel in ETH appears to have been broken, and the retracement falls below the short-term support level, and the follow-up continues to examine whether there is effective support below.
