Crypto Markets Shed $130B, Bitcoin Dumps to 2-Month Low (Market Watch)

Bitcoin continues to gradually lose value and dropped to a near two-month low of just over $37,000. The altcoins are also deep in the red, with notable price losses from Solana, Cardano, Terra, Polkadot, and many others.

Bitcoin Sees 2-Month Low

It’s safe to say that the primary cryptocurrency has seen better days. In fact, they weren’t all that long ago, as BTC neared $41,000 roughly a week ago but was rejected in its tracks.

The subsequent correction drove the asset south hard, and it lost about $3,000 in hours. However, it reacted well and went on the offensive once more. This time, it spiked above $40,000 again but, just like the previous example, failed to continue upwards.

Instead, bitcoin started losing ground again, fell below the coveted $40,000 line, and dropped to $38,000, as reported yesterday.

The situation worsened in the following 24 hours as BTC dumped below $37,500. This became its lowest price tag since early March.

As of now, bitcoin has regained some traction and stands around $38,000. Nevertheless, its market capitalization has declined to $720 billion.

Alts in Deep Red

The alternative coins are also in bad shape today. Ethereum was riding high several days ago as it stood above $3,000. However, the broader bearish market sentiment pushed the second-largest cryptocurrency south. As of now, ETH stands below $2,800 after another 2% daily decline.

Binance Coin was also sitting above $400 until recently but is now down to $380. Solana, Ripple, Terra, Cardano, Dogecoin, Polkadot, Avalanche, and Shiba Inu are also deep in the red.

ApeCoin has lost the most in a day (-30%) following the sale of BAYC’s Otherside. Fantom, Kava, FIlecoin, Zilliqa, Harmony, Gala, Decentraland, The Sandbox, and THORChain have also declined by double digits.

Consequently, the market cap is down to $1.7 trillion, meaning that the metric has seen $130 billion gone in two days.
