Bitcoin Drops Below $19,000 for the First Time Since July, Ether Turns Bearish Too
Bitcoin, the world’s largest cryptocurrency by market capitalisation, has begun a steep drop, one that sees its value drop further along the lines of its June 2022 lows as investors burrow deeper into risk-off mode. The value of Bitcoin has witnessed a considerable dip of over 5 percent in the last 24 hours with its price now hovering below the $19,000 (roughly Rs. 15.20 lakh) mark across global exchanges while Indian exchanges like CoinSwitch and CoinDCX value BTC at $20,582 (roughly Rs. 16.50 lakh), 1.5 percent lower than yesterday.

Ether’s performance in the latter stages of last week saw the cryptocurrency’s value rise well above where it was the previous week. According to CoinGecko data, the world’s second-largest crypto asset has increased in value by 9.5 percent week on week.
According to Gadgets 360’s cryptocurrency price tracker, most major cryptocurrencies suffered a horrible day of sharp losses during the last 24 hours. The worldwide crypto market capitalisation fell by 5.43 percent between late Tuesday and early Wednesday.
