WEEKLY ANALYSIS - Bitcoin’s Price Falls Amid Shift in Market Sentiment
Ethereum also see notable losses, while overall crypto market cap remains substantially stable.
The market mood has changed after a surge of enthusiasm for the possible green light of Bitcoin ETFs, resulting in a fall in Bitcoin’s value from about $30,500 to around $30,200 in the last week.
Bitcoin (BTC), the first and most important crypto in the world, came close to its 2023 peak of $31,431 (reached last month) in the previous week, but could not break it.
