Welcome to today’s overview of crypto news:
After BTC recorded its last all-time high of $ 69,000, it was gripped by the bears. Hours after peaking, they dropped $ 6,000 in assets and stood in his way as he struggled to recover.
A few days ago, the BTC failed to reach $ 66,000 when the bears pushed it hard again to the south. This time, the cryptocurrency lost more than $ 7,000 in a few hours and fell to a three-week low of $ 58,500.
Initially, BTC bounced back to $ 61,000, but it only took a short time. A few hours later, the asset was again below $ 60,000 and remained at that level. It is currently trading at just over $ 59,000.
The altcoins turned out just as badly. ETH fell below $ 4,200 from a last high of almost $ 4,900. However, a small increase of 1.2% in the last 24 hours helped the second largest cryptocurrency to regain this level. Nevertheless, the ETH fell by $ 700 during the week.
