After a relatively long period of stability, the crypto markets suffered a significant blow, and the crash is now in full swing, as described by me last week. The price of Bitcoin has fallen around 30%, and the alternative coins, altcoins, have also been painted red with severe losses of up to 50%.
After the hype of 2017, the crypto market has had a tough year both in terms of regulations and trade, even for the HODLers. However, in a fundamental analysis of the market, we can see that the infrastructure is in steady development, and it seems that the market is aiming in a positive direction, but it is probably not enough to support the highly hyped prices of 2017.
It is not customary to look for reasons for the volatility. However, if we must, then we can see the tightening regulations around ICOs as a possible reason. It is also possible that the internal wars in Bitcoin Cash was another catalyst for the recent declines.
The war in Bitcoin Cash is underway, and mining is still being done at a loss along with wasteful maintenance of the network. It is possible that the financing of the Bitcoin cash war will lead to the decision by the various parties of the waste, bringing the entire market down. Whether it’s an ego war or a conspiracy, it’s never boring in the crypto market.
In conclusion, after talking about the market floor, we received another painful correction that reminded us of the volatility of the market exposing the investors to an unexpected risk. From here we hope to find the bottom soon so that the investors will not be harmed and lose confidence in crypto.

Traded around $4,400 the rapid decline broke all the trend lines. There is a chance of a breakthrough attempt that will test the resistance, but this will happen after the falls have stopped. Meanwhile, support is being built around $4,300, and it is hard to say how long it will hold. If the declines continue, the next step will be marked at around $3000, where the end of the correction appears in the technical analysis, which will be very painful to the holders.
