Bitcoin, Polkadot, Dogecoin, Chainlink Daily Price Analysis – 16 December Roundup

Bitcoin

TL;DR Breakdown

  • Global market cap down by 2.19%, back to $2.21T.
  • Bitcoin’s progress reverses; it is back to $47,724.25.
  • Dogecoin loses 3.85% in 24 hours.
  • Chainlink, also affected by the recession, suffers losses amounting to 5.17%.

The effects of the Omicron variant on traditional and non-traditional markets have become apparent now. The change is evident in the case of the crypto market, which tries to gain heights, but ultimately the gravity of the situation pulls it back. The recent news about the U.S. stock market tells the same story, which has closed at a lower value compared to past days. The most losses in the market are those suffered by the tech sector.

The trend of bearishness is evident in the case of major coins like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Binance Coin and in the case of altcoins like Solana, Algorand, etc. There is no surety in saying how long this recessive trend will last. Mainly the factor that has affected the progress of these coins is the Covid-19 Omicron variant which has made these coins suffer.

The liquidation in the market is mainly due to the fear of loss, and it has created a chain of fear in the market, resultantly affecting the prices. Though there are fears in the market, there is some good news for the investors. One of these is Kraken’s announcement of joining the race for the NFT marketplace. It has announced that it will soon launch its NFT marketplace to bring users NFTs-related services.

BTC pulled back by the gravity of Omicron

The situation of the Omicron variant is worsening in the U.S. and Europe. The ongoing situation has affected the main markets for bitcoin. Bitcoin was already suffering from the setbacks in the market and was trying to revitalize, but again the changing market has struck it. It is yet to be seen how it will respond to this new crisis, but its perseverance shows that it will emerge victoriously.

Musk couldn’t help DOGE regain the momentum

The market is bearish, and even major coins couldn’t resist it. For this reason, a loss of 3.85% was seen in the case of Dogecoin during the last 24 hours, compared to a 1.29% gain in the last seven days.

Chainlink’s current market cap is estimated to be $8 billion. The trading volume for the same coin in the last 24 hours was recorded to be $715 million, which equals 37,909,235 LINK.

Final Thoughts

A continuous bearishness is seen in the market, and the recent blows made Bitcoin suffer even further. The ongoing changes have brought it to the $47K range, a significant loss. The impacts of changes in the traditional market and global health have made it, and other coins suffer. The investor uncertainty needs to be stopped; otherwise, it will result in further losses for the crypto market.

The recent fluctuations in the market have shown a steadiness. These changes are affecting the market by recurrent blows, which, if continued for long, might make the market further recessive. There are hopes for the early recovery for the market because the depreciation is not in favor of investor and global market growth.
