Bitcoin (BTC) breaks below $25,000, XRP (XRP) and Cardano (ADA) widen their 24-hour drop to 7.4%, crypto assets (virtual currencies) June 15 fell sharply on the day. CoinGecko data also shows that the total market capitalization has fallen by 3.8% over the past 24 hours.
Further declines are expected with some traders suggesting Bitcoin could fall to $23,500 based on price chart analysis.
Alex Kuptsikevich, Senior Market Analyst at FxPro, said in an email to CoinDesk that “Bitcoin has retreated to local resistance levels from last August to February this year.” said. “The bulls may try to contain selling around this level, but the current drop is still inside the descending channel that has been going on since April.”
