Bitcoin Drops by $7,000 in Minutes

Bitcoin dropped as low as $47,400 in today’s trading session. Bitcoin boosted to $58,312 on Sunday, after which it dropped by $7,000 in minutes, and the market cap reduced and fell below 1 Trillion. But the price of the leading crypto bounced back to cross the $50K mark yet again. Currently, Bitcoin is exchanging hands at $52,880. Experts and analysts have different takes on the situation.

Analysts’ Views on the Fall of Bitcoin

Scott Melker, a crypto trader and investor, claims the $7,000 is the largest hourly move in history. Michael van de Poppe, a market analyst at Cointelegraph, considered the range between $50,500 and $52,000 to be important for bulls to hold and preserve. Poppe believed that the bull run might continue in the short run.

Janet Yellen, 78th treasury secretary for the United States, was adamant that Bitcoin was used as a means to support criminal activity. She also deemed Bitcoin to be “inefficient”. Sunayna Tuteja, a Bitcoin proponent, was appointed as a chief innovation officer at the Federal Reserve.

 Elon Musk tweeted, saying that the prices “seem high” on Saturday. 

 

The co-founder of exchange DeversiFi, Ross Middleton, commented that last week’s rest and ease have accounted for the sell-off in the market this week. The market commentator said that it also caused the release of over-leveraged positions. 

Although the big hourly candle was worrying for many analysts and strategists, it was usual for people familiar with the crypto trends in the market. Armin Van Bitcoin, a famous Twitter account, tweeted that these price drops eventually encourage to invest more and stack even higher. 

After touching the lows of $47,400, the flagship coin ascended again to reach $53,000, resultantly showing a bullish sign in the market. Analyst Melker stressed the importance of the buying opportunity the fall had unleashed. The curious investors would seize the opportunity and pour the money into the leading cryptocurrency in the world. According to many experts, a correction was expected even before the surge in the market.

Unusual swings in the crypto market are normal as people attached to the crypto industry understand this myth. It was a golden opportunity for people to dive into the crypto industry before it takes flight towards $100,000.
