Bitcoin posts biggest daily drop since market crash of March 2020

Some crypto experts anticipate such losses are coming from widespread profit-taking by U.S. and European investors.

Bitcoin

The flagship crypto, Bitcoin, suffered massive losses in the early hours of Friday, as almost all the gains recorded in 2021 vanished into thin air, thus posting its largest daily drop since the market crash of March 2020.

  • Some crypto experts posit that such losses are coming from widespread profit-taking by U.S. and European investors, and that worries about extra regulation has driven the crypto asset toward a weekly loss of more than 25%.
  • Top-rated crypto assets like Ethereum plunged by almost 16%, while Chainlink also recorded double-digit percentage losses.

Also weighing on prevailing market conditions seen across the crypto-verse, data retrieved from Glassnode, a crypto analytic firm, reveal bitcoin $BTC Supply in Profit (1d MA) just reached a 3-month low of 16,899,766.137 BTC.

The previous 3-month low of 16,903,691.779 BTC was observed on 11 December, 2020

What this means: Consequently, Jesse Cohen, a senior crypto analyst, in a note to Nairametrics, spoke on the outlook for Bitcoin in 2021.

Specta

“I expect Bitcoin to remain highly volatile to the downside in the new year, given the potential for more scrutiny and tighter regulation. That should see prices fall back from their record highs, with the prospect of increased regulation being the most important factor affecting Bitcoin in 2021.”

However, as it gained more than 300% in 2020, many crypto experts wonder if BTC can continue such rally this year.

Investors get burnt, lose $1.6 billion in crypto within a day

Published

on

The prevailing market condition at the crypto market led to heavy losses of global investors’ funds, when roughly $1.6 billion worth of crypto positions evaporated into thin air within a day.

The mass liquidation of such crypto holdings, according to data retrieved from Bybt, showed that such occurred before the flagship crypto dipped from $34,300 to around $29,700 at press time.

For the day, about 192,005 crypto traders got liquidated.

The global crypto market value at press time was around $842.75B, a 16.40% decrease over the previous day.

Specta
  • Total crypto market volume for the day stood at $169 billion, which makes a 12.17% increase.
  • Total volume in DeFi is currently $14.53 billion, 8.61% of the total crypto market 24-hour volume.
  • The volume of all stable coins is now $140.71B, which is 83.36% of the total crypto market 24-hour volume.
  •  The flagship crypto traded at $29,196.15.
  • Bitcoin’s dominance is currently 64.77%, an increase of 0.16% over the day

What this means: Record sell-offs have pushed Bitcoin’s year-to-date gains below 1%. The record sell-off in the crypto market is likely due to widespread profit-taking by U.S. and European investors.

Some days ago, the leading United Kingdom financial regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority, issued a piece of stern advice on crypto investments.

The statement highlighted the risks associated with investing in Bitcoin and other crypto assets, and warned the public that there were high chances that all their funds could be lost.

“The FCA is aware that some firms are offering investments in crypto assets or lending or investments linked to crypto assets, that promise high returns.

“Investing in crypto assets, or investments and lending linked to them generally involves taking very high risks with investors’ money. If consumers invest in these types of products, they should be prepared to lose all their money.”
