A week of mixed trend in the crypto markets. Bitcoin has a hard time breaching the trend that started two weeks ago and the market is plummeting. The hype in the ETF sector has eased somewhat and it appears that the correction in the graph followed news of the postponement of the SEC decision.
The last few days have been characterized by high volatility that make it difficult for traders who leverage against Bitcoin and are thrown out of their positions, sometimes at a considerable loss.
In the past 24 hours, rumors have been circulating that the Korean exchange Bithumb has been breached and millions of dollars worth of stolen coins have been stolen. Earlier this year, the exchange was breached and only last week the South Korean regulator approved the security model for the local crypto exchanges. As of this writing, no official announcement has been issued by Bithumb , and we are currently addressing the issue as a rumor until the next update.
In the Alternative coins arena we watch the bleeding and see how its lost support after another hammering and look for a new bottom from which they may recover. The fact that the vast majority of the Alternative coins are pure speculative and practically useless that raised large sums of money without a working product is liable to harm the confidence of investors who have relaxed their emotional hype and their fear of losing the opportunity to profit. We noticed that unlike the usual pattern of the past in which the Bitcoin rate waves sweep the entire market, in recent months the downward trend in the market continues even as the Bitcoin rate rises, a trend that should be noticed, especially if you are looking for new investments. Accordingly, Bitcoin’s dominance also reinforces its position at the time of writing the update at 48.3%. All this happens when money comes out of the crypto market and the entire market value shrinks to $ 278 billion, down 20 billion from last week.
