Bitcoin Price Dumped $2K as Crypto Market Cap Loses $100B (Market Watch)
After unsuccessfully trying to break above $35,000, bitcoin reversed its trajectory once more and dumped by over $2,000 in hours. Most alternative coins are also well in red, with the total market cap losing $100 billion since yesterday’s high.
Bitcoin Dips Beneath $33K
Just a few days ago, during the weekend, the primary cryptocurrency took a swing at $36,000, but it failed and retraced to around $33,000. It went up once more in the following days to approximately $35,000, but more negative information coming from China brought it down by a few thousand dollars again.
However, it seems the Chinese effects have weakened lately, and bitcoin regained all losses relatively quickly. As reported yesterday, it neared and even briefly jumped above $35,000.
Nevertheless, it failed to decisively overcome that particular level as the bears stepped up. In a matter of hours, they intensified the pressure, and BTC lost more than $2,000. As a result, the asset dumped to a daily low of $32,800, which became the lowest price line since July 2nd.
Despite bouncing off and reclaiming $33,000 since then, bitcoin is still more than 4% down on a 24-hour scale, and its market cap is well below $650 billion.
Altcoins in Red
The situation with the alternative coins is similar to a large extent. Ethereum was among the best performers lately, especially after confirmation that the London hard fork will occur in early August. The second-largest crypto pumped to a 3-week high at well over $2,300.
However, ETH has dropped by more than 7% since yesterday and is close to breaking below $2,200 as of now.
Binance Coin has retraced by 5% and is down to $320. Cardano (-4%), Ripple (-5.5%), Polkadot (-5.5%) Bitcoin Cash (-5.5%), and Litecoin (-5.5%) have all gone down by a similar percentage.
Furthermore, Dogecoin (-8.5%), Uniswap (-10%), and Chainlink (-10%) have lost the most from the larger cap alts.
Interestingly, Flow (33%), Stacks (19%), and BakeryToken (11%) have charted impressive gains in this bloody day. Most other lower- and mid-cap altcoins are deep in red as well.
KuCoin Token, which was riding high for several consecutive days, is down by 21% since yesterday. SushiSwap (-13%), Compound (-12%), Synthetix (-12%), Avalanche (-11%), Telcoin (-10%), THORChain (-10%), Horizen (-10%), and PancakeSwap (-10%) complete the double digit price dump club.
Ultimately, the cumulative market capitalization saw $100 billion evaporated from yesterday’s high at one point.
