After a few days of recovering, BTC Slipped and reversed its trajectory and dropped to $20,000 with most other altcoins being in the red as well aside from Shiba Inu which soared and made some impressive gains. After last week’s massacre culminating in an 18-month low of $17,500, the cryptocurrency recovered some gains.
