Crypto market turns green, downside risk remains high

0 118

The crypto industry is experiencing turbulence due to Bitcoin sales in Germany and concerns over significant liquidations by Mt. Gox creditors.

However, despite these challenges, there is optimism for the future, driven by sustained risk-taking in established markets and favorable macroeconomic conditions.

Investors are more willing to invest in riskier assets like Bitcoin and equities during global economic expansion.

U.S.-based spot Bitcoin ETFs saw their biggest net inflows in over a month, generating $295 million on July 8. BlackRock’s iShares Bitcoin Trust ETF led with $187.2 million, followed by Fidelity’s Wise Origin Bitcoin Fund with $61.5 million.

The Grayscale Bitcoin Trust also recorded $25.1 million in inflows. The German government has sent over 26,200 BTC to exchanges, with 27,460 BTC remaining in reserve.

Bitcoin’s price dropped nearly 17% to $57,200 within a month, impacting other volatile areas of the crypto market.

Concerns are growing about the potential market impact of Mt. Gox compensating creditors with $8.5 billion in Bitcoin.

Over the past two trading weeks, Bitcoin’s price has plummeted, reaching as low as $53,600 on July 5.

While the outlook remains pessimistic, there is potential for consolidation and an uptick in Q4. Bitcoin rebounded to $57,200 from a low of $54,300, with support at $51,500 and resistance at $60,000. Upcoming US inflation data could further affect the volatile cryptocurrency markets.
