Virtual currencies, led by Bitcoin, have been mired in a downtrend spiral in recent weeks, losing up to 50 per cent since record highs of mid-April. Tweets from Tesla boss Elon Musk and regulatory curbs from China have turned investors anxious.
Meanwhile, American traders locked in $4.1 billion in profits trading Bitcoin last year, three times more than the next highest country, according to estimates from Chainalysis. It is followed by China, Japan, UK, Russia and Germany.
“We witnessed a typical high volatile crypto market in the past 24 hours. At some point during the day, major cryptos fell more than 10%. However, they largely recovered later during the session. It is undoubtedly going to be an eventful week,” said Edul Patel, CEO and Co-founder, Mudrex.
Amid Bitcoin’s decline this week, eagle-eyed chart-watchers noticed an ominous-sounding technical breach and the coin is approaching a bearish pattern known as a Death Cross. The world’s largest digital currency has slumped, pushing its average price over the last 50 days close to its 200-day moving average.
