The Bitcoin price has plunged by 14% overnight and visited the $7,700 region – before correcting to $7,900 which is its current price as the latest cryptocurrency news show. The market has been in red over the past 12 hours and as it stands, Bitcoin goes on declining.
Analysts believe that the steep fall for BTC from $8,500 to $7,700 occurred in a relatively short frame and was with a high magnitude. If Bitcoin goes to visit lower regions, it may test support in the $7,100 range.
Analysts shared their opinions on many best cryptocurrency news sites this morning. They believe that the abrupt drop in the BTC price was caused by manipulation by whales or investors which are holding large amounts of the dominant cryptocurrency – from hundreds to millions of dollars.
One Redditor commented on the BTC decline, stating:
“About 20-30 mins before the dump, a whale moved 25k BTC (worth $215M) to Coinbase. About an hour after the dump, a whale moved 14k BTC (worth $112M) from Coinbase to another wallet.”
In the coming altcoin news, we can see that the situation is largely affected by the dominant cryptocurrency. As Bitcoin visits lower levels, altcoins are following too. The big sell order may have triggered even altcoin sales – and the market cap of $253 billion is solid proof for that.
What’s fascinating is the fact that the only gainer in the altcoin news is Bitcoin SV (BSV) which managed to sustain the momentum and stay at $222 which is its price at press time. Besides it, the entire top 40 list is in a sea of red.
The cryptocurrency analyst Josh Rager follows as Bitcoin goes to decline even more. This morning, he wrote:
“Bitcoin continues to push down quite aggressively and would like to see a move above $7824 and hold Eyeing that previous CME futures gap that wasn’t explored at $7175 If Bulls don’t step in, I believe the price is heading that way.”
On the question if Bitcoin will recover, he said that this may be a short term relief that can last hours or days before another push to retest the Bitcoin price action occurs. Similarly, other traders have emphasized that $8,200 is a crucial level that Bitcoin must sustain right now.

What Drives BTC Below $10k This Summer: Analysis
Bitcoin Cash Is A ‘Wounded Animal’ Right Now: Analysts
“Looks as if it wants to pull a BTC like run soon. As long as it can close through resistance (0.035) I’ll suspect BCH is going to retest blue (0.075) which would be + 150% from here,” he said on Twitter.https://twitter.com/CryptoDonAlt/status/1160645331262070790 Nearly all of the altcoin pairs have a potential, however, since the Bitcoin dominance is still so high, Bitcoin Cash is among the altcoins with the most potential, BCH can register gains and on a shorter time frame will apparently test resistance, as a prominent CNBC trader with a handle 'Big Cheds' noted. https://twitter.com/BigCheds/status/1160681244436381696 All in all, Bitcoin Cash is in our latest cryptocurrency news. Even though it is one of those controversial digital assets that often draws a lot of attention, it is also one of the main altcoins which deserves a place in the spotlight.
“BCH is a wounded, volatile animal. A year from now it will struggle to stay above $100. The project was DOA from day-1. 90% of its market cap is the product of manipulation that will be impossible to meaningfully sustain," as described by the RT Anchor Max Keiser.https://twitter.com/maxkeiser/status/1160712205849059328
Messari Report: BTC Could Copy Gold’s Behavior And Drop Dramatically
“I would not be surprised if BTC performs like gold did 2008-2011.’’McArdle referenced some of the fresh comments that were made on gold by Raoul Pal who is the serial asset manager who presented a buoyant outlook for both Bitcoin and gold during the Stephan Livra podcast. On the topic of gold’s current return to form in line with the number one cryptocurrency, he stated that the markets are now preparing for the dollar’s own winning streak. He tweeted:
“Gold is rightly doing its job, sniffing out a BIG problem and is exploding higher, outperforming even the super strong dollar as gold begins to price in an end game of an eventual MASSIVE readjustment of the dollar (in 12 months? 18 months?).’’As it was reported in the latest cryptocurrency news, the Bitcoin price bull runs since April have started a strong debate once again about the potential long-term and gold-like safe-haven assets. There are now more and more figures that continue to shift into Bitcoin for investors that are looking for a hedge against the inflation that is currently happening. Some of the figures include Circle’s CEO Jeremey Allaire as well as some other consultancy executives this week. For example, Peter Schiff doubled down on his opinion that gold is now better than cryptocurrency. He even took it to Twitter and stated that many customers are not buying Bitcoin because it is a safe-haven asset:
“The Chinese aren’t buying Bitcoin as a safe haven. Speculators are buying, betting that the Chinese will buy it as a safe haven!”
