Bitcoin drops below $30,000 as selloff deepens

The price of Bitcoin dropped below $30,000 for the first time since 22nd June on Tuesday morning as the selloff in cryptocurrencies deepened.

Other major cryptocurrencies were also trading lower with Ethereum below $1,800 and XRP below $0.53.

There was no major fundamental catalyst for the move lower in the cryptocurrency space but some analysts have cited the broad risk-off tone in the market as the reason for the latest leg lower.

Yesterday saw heavy selling pressure in equity markets across the globe, with the Dow Jones falling 2.1% and the FTSE 100 lower by 2.3%. However, European indices have shown some signs of recovery on Tuesday morning, with the FTSE 100 up 1.1% and the DAX up 0.9%.

Fears over the strength of the global economic recovery, amid the continued spread of the Delta variant, continues to weigh on riskier assets and there are few assets that are more risky than Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.  

When Bitcoin dropped below $30,000 last month, the retreat below the level lasted just a few hours before bouncing and returning above that level.

On a technical basis, the next level of support to the downside could be the $29,000 level before a test of the 22nd June low at $28,900.

Below that and some analysts are calling for a drop to as low as $20,000. However, some have argued that the lower price of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies might attract increased institutional investment.

At 08:50BST, Bitcoin was trading at $29,800, down 5.8% in the last 24 hours. Ethereum was trading at $1,760, down 7% and XRP at $0.53, down 9%.

    • Certain centralised platforms have been very intentional about creating wealth for its users to this end CEXs like Bitget have built certain frameworks to aid this adequately.  Through the instrument of its launch pool, it lets users earn massive APR thus providing a good ground for wealth creation. The performance of some of the launchpool projects lends credence to this, the likes of $ENA, $ZKF $GRAPE and a host of others generated good APRs.  In an almost similar exactitude as the launchpool, the PoolX is the new framework that lets users earn by staking $BGB and $USDT to mine other tokens on the platform. From the products Bitget have brought forth it is safe to say the platform is playing a worthwhile part in wealth creation to every crypto enthusiast around the globe.  Personally, I have participated in these and i will say they are worthwhile opportunities to make fortunes off of, i will advise you jump on it too anon.

    • For example, look at today's 15/04/24,  DAX (Germany) 40 chart action. I predicted that the market would take off up from the very start and have a positive morning.
