Another red week for the crypto market, that already looks like an unfinished avalanche. Every time the market seems settled, we experience another drop in prices. Bitcoin lost another 15% of its price, and most of the alternative coins lost even more.
We’ve been in this bear market almost a year, and even the Bitcoin miners have turned off their mining rigs or are trying their luck with mining various Altcoins. Traders, investors, and companies have lost their influence and the decline in prices causes panic all around.
However, there are companies that have kept enough funds on the side and experienced traders who use leverage trading skills while enjoy shorting Bitcoin, Ether, and others. It seems that shorting has become the new trend. However, it must be remembered that for every short there could be a short squeeze.
The market went down 25% on average of trading against the dollar. Against Bitcoin, it seems that the majority of the coins are looking to base on the previous floor of support, although some have changed their trend as we have recently seen in Ripple and Factom. In addition, Smartcash price went up by 25% due to its upcoming airdrop.
The market is having hard time, when the media keeps bashing Bitcoin and the tax authorities have frozen trading activity by collecting taxes for every transaction. But it’s not likely to stop the crypto market and we do expect another bullish wave in the future, after the regulation will be clear.
Bitcoin dominance at 55% | Market cap at 108 billion dollars.
