Bitcoin BTC price continues to fall and drops to $30,000!
The carnage in the crypto market began this morning as the Asian market opened, with Bitcoin BTC falling to the $38,000 level.
If a further drop in the Bitcoin price was possible, it was clearly surprised by its magnitude, causing altcoins to drop by more than 50%!
A real carnage therefore for many traders and investors who were able to panic and who sold under the pressure of this downtrend that surprises when we discover the volatility of the BTC price and the crypto sector as a whole.
Some traders were hoping for a rebound this morning, hundreds of thousands of them were liquidated following the rapid decline in the price of Bitcoin in the markets.
Liquidations of positions that would amount to $8 billion following this crash in the BTC price.
As usual, in this kind of extreme situation, some crypto exchanges like Binance or Coinbase were unavailable due to increased traffic from users who all wanted to access their accounts.
