Recently, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) just crashed by 3% from $8,910 to a local low of $8,585. This Bitcoin’s plunge represents the lowest the crypto has traded in the last 18 hours.
Bitcoin’s plunge, does not come as a surprise, considering the volatility the cryptocurrency markets have seen over the past few days. However, it is expected to go on the high back because of Satoshi Vision variant of Bitcoin that also dropped 35% from its local peak price.
Satoshi Vision variant of Bitcoin was on the rise yesterday after Craig S. Wright, had access to an entire stash of the cryptocurrency. The crypto surged well from below $200 to as high as $440 in 24 hours within a day. It allowed BSV to surpass the Cash fork in the cryptocurrency rankings, taking the fourth spot behind XRP, Ethereum, and Bitcoin (BTC).
However, since the $440 peak, the altcoin has crashed, plunging by dozens of percent owing to many reasons.
However, Bitcoin’s price crash has left a question of if Bitcoin’s price will continue to go lower.
Beyond Bitcoin’s plunge
After Bitcoin’s price dropped, analysts have continued to analyze the situation and predict future happenings via Twitter. Although they see a bright future for Bitcoin, Big Cheds explained that with the latest move, Bitcoin has started to form what is known as an “M top,” which has price action shaped like an M.
Cheds explained that the pattern is in its middle stages, not yet forming the entire latter half of the “M” in the topping pattern.
But should it play out in full, BTC could fall as low as $8,200, the analyst’s chart suggests.
