Bitcoin consilates and altcoins falls slowly
After last week’s report, we saw Bitcoin sharpen up from $ 6200 and up to $ 8200! Bitcoin has since consolidated downwards and is currently priced at $ 7090. The Altcoin market, on the other hand, has been hit harder. Even with Bitcoin’s upturn, altcoins were not ready to follow. This has led to the fact that most did not join Bitcoin on the bullrun, but also fell with Bitcoin on the downturn from $ 8200 to $ 7090. The big-mentioned ETF launch is something many believe may be the reason.
Here is an overview of the most important news the last week, with interesting reading material!
