Bitcoin falls below $30,000, a new low.

2 min read

Coinglass has reported the liquidation of $475 million in bitcoin long holdings. Aside from bitcoin, Ether, Avalanche, and Solana have all dropped in value.

The coin’s price plummeted below $30,000 late last night, but it was quickly repurchased, and the price is presently little over $31,700 per coin. The broad risk aversion that has seized global markets as central banks combat inflation in an attempt to temper pandemic stimulation from the coronavirus period has pushed down cryptocurrencies.

Bitcoin has lost over 20% this year and is down over 52% from its highs last year. According to David Duong, head of institutional research at Coinbase, markets will confront several challenges, including stricter central bank policies and unclear global economic prospects.

Bitcoin normally moves in lockstep with the NADSAQ, which has been falling for the fifth week in a row and has lost 25.6 percent in the last six months. Despite the market turbulence, many concur that cryptocurrencies have the potential to extend the risky asset downward correction.

The 90-day correlation coefficient between Bitcoin and the tech index has surpassed 0.67 for the first time since 2010. A coefficient of 1 shows that the assets are travelling in the same direction, whereas a coefficient of -1 suggests that they are moving in different directions.
