Flagship cryptocurrency Bitcoin recorded its worst month in over a decade in June. The cryptocurrency market has been experiencing a decline with investors pulling out their assets. In June, Bitcoin had its largest-ever monthly fall after experiencing a series of fluctuations that month.
Crypto experts are of the opinion that Bitcoin is on its way to experiencing the worst quarter of price fluctuations, indicating how terrible the situation is. The recent occurrences also remind us of several projections that came for Bitcoin at the beginning of the year, especially that of University of Sussex’s finance Professor Alexander Carol who predicted Bitcoin falling as low as $10,000 this year. Bitcoin seems to be on its way there. Thus, the latest happenings suggest that Bitcoin may not have a great year as it will take not only time but a couple of other factors, for the crypto to be able to recover its losses.
With a decline of over 40 percent in the month of June, this is the biggest-ever decline experienced in over a decade. Bitcoin has recorded an 18-month low of $17,500 and although it recovered from this low, it has been trading at around $20,000. As of the time of writing this article, Bitcoin was trading below the $20,000 mark.
Cryptocurrency firms and businesses have all been affected by the latest events. Macroeconomic challenges, market uncertainties, as well as rising inflation have all been sources of worry for investors. Last month, some crypto exchanges had to pause withdrawals. So-called stable coins pegged to stable currencies such as the dollar also had their value wiped off last month. The crypto market capitalization fell below its trillion-dollar milestone. Millions of dollars were wiped off the market.
While some people, and Central American country El Salvador, have been buying the dip, some experts believe that Bitcoin will continue to decline and get to the $10,000 mark. Microstrategy Inc. is also part of the investors buying the dip. In a recent filing, the company revealed that it had purchased additional 480 Bitcoins valued at close to $10 million.
As of the time of writing this article, Bitcoin was trading at $19,209.90.
