Why Bitcoin And Other Crypto Prices Are Plunging?

|

Cryptocurrency prices continued to fall after a massive selloff raced through global markets, prompted by fears of contagion from China's Evergrande Group. Bitcoin, the world's most popular cryptocurrency, fell as low as $40,000 in early trading, its lowest level since early August. However, it recovered to trade near $42,600 at the press time. Bitcoin's dominance is currently 42.45%, a decrease of 0.23% over the day.

 
Why Bitcoin And Other Crypto Prices Are Plunging?

The decline in cryptocurrency value comes at a time when institutional interest in the industry has risen, and some investment banks have raised their cryptocurrency estimates for the coming months.

Analysts anticipate further volatility this week as investors seek protection in risk assets.

According to data from digital asset management CoinShares, cryptocurrency investment products and funds witnessed inflows for the sixth week in a row. For the week ending September 17, crypto inflows totaled $41.6 million, with bitcoin accounting for $15.3 million and ether products accounting for $6.6 million.

According to the research, Bitcoin has been hit the worst by negative investor sentiment, with inflows occurring only three times in the last 16 weeks. The total amount of bitcoin inflows for the year was $4.2 billion.

Why are cryptos plunging?

Evergrande, a Chinese real estate conglomerate, is facing a $300 billion debt and the possibility of bankruptcy. On Monday, the company's Hong Kong-listed shares dropped by about 20%. Many markets, including cryptos, are concerned that a collapse will disrupt them.

Bitcoin (BTC) investors are concerned about growing rumors that Evergrande Group, China's second-largest property developer, may default on its $300 billion in obligations.

According to reports, cryptocurrencies may face a crackdown by US politicians and regulators.

The Wall Street Journal reported last week that the Biden administration is "preparing an array of actions, including sanctions, to make it tougher for hackers to benefit from ransomware assaults using digital currency."

 

"Bitcoin prices have fallen below US$45,000. This drastic change of 8% can be attributed to Chinese developer Evergrande's debt of US$300 billion. Despite dips in the crypto and traditional markets, countries like the newly regulated El Salvador have taken the downturn to its advantage and purchased an additional 150 more bitcoins, bringing its total holdings to US$31 million. This shows that although the market will undoubtedly fluctuate, crypto will always be a sought-after asset. When the market falls, the only way is up," CoinDCX Research Team.
