Los mercados criptomoneda estaban parpadeando en rojo de nuevo el jueves después de Bitcoin (BTC), criptomoneda más grande del mundo por capitalización de mercado, fell by more than $900 en 24 horas.
On August 14, beginning at 12:00 UTC, BTC began to fall sharply from $10,862 to as low as $9,888 before traders bought the price back up above $10,000.
It marks the worst single-day loss since July 16, approximately 30 days ago.
sin embargo, BTC’s price has successfully defended a sub $10,000 close on yesterday’s trading period and is currently changing hands at $10,084.
The move down was also accompanied by a large surge in total trading volume, rising $13.5 billion over a 24-hour period as investors and traders rushed to close their positions in order to stem the bleeding.
Major names such as ether (ETH), litecoin (LTC), XRP (XRP) y EOS (EOS) also began to fall in value at around the same time as BTC, losing between 8-12 percent respectively.
Promover, the total market capitalization of all cryptocurrencies combined endured a $20 billion loss over 24 hours with a total valuation of $265.8 billion by the time the dust had settled.
The short term outlook remains a volatile one, so BTC could experience a bounce on today’s momentum, but that will need to be accompanied by strong levels in growing (bullish) volume in order to end the recent sell-off still being felt from August 10.
