Bitcoin Lost $7K in Days

The main focus in the cryptocurrency space in the past week or so was on the first-ever Bitcoin Futures ETF going live in the United States on Tuesday. The euphoria for such a long-anticipated product propelled a massive price surge for the digital asset, which broke above its April ATH and charted a new one a day later at $67,000.

However, it failed to remain there, and the bears started to push it south gradually. As reported yesterday, BTC dropped to $63,000, but the correction was far from over.

In the past 24 hours, the cryptocurrency kept losing value. This time, it fell to just under $60,000. As such, it meant that BTC had declined by more than $7,000 in a matter of days.

As of now, it has bounced off and recovered some ground. Nevertheless, it’s still 4% down on the day, and its market capitalization is below $1.150 trillion.

The alternative coins have followed their leader south. Ethereum was close to breaking its own ATH at nearly $4,400 a few days back but failed and dropped to $3,900 yesterday. As of now, ETH stands at just over $4,000, but it’s still 3% down in a day.

Solana was also inches away from painting a fresh all-time high. Now, though, SOL trades at $200. Binance Coin, Cardano, Ripple, Polkadot, and Terra are also in the red.

Minor gains are evident from Dogecoin, Avalanche, and Chainlink. More increases come from Huobi Token (11%), Fantom (11%), Curve DAO Token (10%), Harmony (9%), and OKB (7.5%).

In contrast, OMG Network, Flow, The Graph, SushiSwap, Stacks, and ICON have lost the most in a day.
The cryptocurrency market cap is down to $2.530 trillion, meaning it has shed off $150 billion since the peak two days ago.
