Bitcoin remains bullishdespite dump to $60K, analyst

  • The crypto market is seeing widespread sell-offs, with most crypto assets in red.
  • Bitcoin’s dump below $60k and the general price collapse in the crypto prices has some investors scrambling to book profits.
  • ARK36 executive director Mikkel Morch says the market remains bullish

Bitcoin plunged 9% in 24 hours to break below $60,000 as the crypto market price rout wiped out more than $400 billion off the total cryptocurrency market cap. According to data from CoinGecko, the crypto market cap shrank to $2.7 trillion, shedding nearly 10% off recent highs of $3 trillion.

Crypto analyst Michael van de Poppe says the corrections are normal and part of the many waves that hit the crypto market.

Last week, Mikkel Morch, the executive director at EU-based crypto hedge fund ARK36 told CNBC that Bitcoin price was primed for a run above $70,000, reiterating that the uptick towards the target was fundamentally not leverage-driven. Rather, he commented, the rally drew momentum from increased demand across the spot market, which at the time did not signal much sell-side liquidity.

In comments made on Tuesday, Morch said what has happened is Bitcoin defying expectations and that crypto remains on a positive trajectory.

At the moment, the overall bullish market structure remains largely intact,” the ARK36 exec told Forbes.

After an extended drawdown sent BTC price to lows of $59,150, buyers have reacted to see the cryptocurrency change hands above $60,400 and are looking to recoup some of the losses seen in the past 24 hours.

In the broader market, there were double-digit losses for most altcoins, including Ethereum, which declined by more than 11% to trade near $4,100. Other big losers on the day were Cardano (ADA), XRP (XRP), Solana (SOL), Litecoin (LTC), and Shiba Inu, which had all at one point traded between 10-15% down on the daily timeline.
