Market Watch: Bitcoin Tumbles to $10,130 as Equity Markets Finish in Deep Red

Published

on

After reclaiming some ground yesterday, Bitcoin has returned to its recent bearish trend by dropping below $10,300. Most altcoins follow with some notable price dips, resulting in a near $10 billion evaporated from the total market cap.

Bitcoin Dips Below $10,300

As reported yesterday, the primary cryptocurrency recovered some of the recent losses and traded around the previous 2020 high from February at $10,500. However, the asset couldn’t maintain its position and began free-falling once again.

In just a few hours, BTC went from its daily high of above $10,500 to its intraday bottom of $10,130 (on Binance). Since then, the digital asset has recovered some ground and is trading now just around $10,300.

Bitcoin’s current position places it close to the support level at $10,290. If BTC further breaks below, it could head towards $10,200 and the psychological $10,000.

Adverse price developments are evident among most financial markets. Gold, which typically performs similarly to Bitcoin, dipped from its high of $1,900 per ounce to about $1,850.

Red Dominates The Altcoin Market

Most alts bleed out today. Ethereum has declined by nearly 4% and it trades at $325. Ripple (-3%) fights to stay above $0.22. Bitcoin Cash, Binance Coin, Crypto.com Coin, and Litecoin have also dropped by about 3%.

Some lower-cap alts have decreased by double-digit percentages. DigiByte (-18%), Ren (-15%), Orchid (-13%), Reserve Rights (-12%), UMA (-12), OMG Network (-10.5), and Algorand (-10%) lead the way.

A few coins trade in the green as well. Helium has surged by 40% after being listed on the leading cryptocurrency exchange Binance. Uniswap (13%) and HedgeTrade (10%) follow.

Ultimately, though, the crypto market cap has dropped from yesterday’s peak at $332 billion to $325 billion.

Trader Who Transformed 0.2 BTC Into $100,000 Sounding Alarm on Bitcoin, Crypto, and Stock Markets

Published

A popular Bitcoin trader who turned 0.2 Bitcoin into $100,000 in a recent trading contest is now putting out bearish warnings about both the stock market and BTC.

The pseudonymous trader SalsaTekila just shared a chart of the plunging S&P 500 Index, quoting rapper Eminem and noting he “wouldn’t want to be long on anything right now.”

The trader, who is known as one of the most transparent in the crypto community, says he’s surprised “BTC isn’t nuking already.”

Although he’s concerned about the macro economy, the trader says the bottom might be in for Chainlink (LINK). He says he placed a substantial bet on the coin below $7.80, hoping it makes a big move to the upside.

The day trader, who finished second in the profit-and-loss individual rankings of Bybit’s World Series of Trading, now plans to sit back and watch the market for a while.

“I’ll probably keep my green button disabled on BTC until and unless legacy and commodities bounce. All those markets feel heavy together, rather stay side-lined. Big expiry coming Friday.

React to upcoming moves or events rather than predict them. Don’t give today’s gainz back.”

The exchange received FCA recognition last August.

Published

on

Gemini, a cryptocurrency exchange and custodian, has announced on Thursday its expansion into the United Kingdom by ‘fully’ launching its services and adding support to the British pound.

This came after the Winklevoss twins’ exchange received recognition from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in August as a crypto exchange for its locally formed entity and also received an electronic money institution (EMI) license.

The registration process was made mandatory by the market regulator under the European Union’s Fifth AML Directive (AMLD5), and Gemini became one of the first to register itself as a local crypto exchange.

According to the official announcement, both ‘individuals and institutions’ in the UK can now access Gemini’s services and purchase digital assets with the British pound. The exchange has opened debit card support along with other bank transfer options, including Faster Payments, CHAPS, and SWIFT.
