it plummeted to levels of USD29,300 Early in the Asian trade. This is after the largest crypto hit a vast price of USD42000, almost fourteen days ago. The gains were kicked up on expectations of its acceptance as a mainstream payment solution as well as it being invested into by more institutional investors.
On the previous day also, the digital currency recorded a low of 11USD. And now as the decline comes, there is the caution that there could be more retreat left after the last year's magnificent surge of 300 percent.
"This level looks very vulnerable and a break below it is bad news in the near-term for Bitcoin and cryptos in general," Craig Erlam, senior market analyst at Oanda Europe, wrote in a note Thursday. "I wouldn't be surprised to see a test of USD20,000 before too long."
After hitting and surpassing levels of USD20000 for the first time in December, the digital currency was recording gains and in January hit above USD30000 and now after hitting levels of USD42000 is witnessing volatility.
