- Bitcoin is back in the $56.5K range after facing a bearish trend.
- Ethereum and Binance Coin face the same bearish market, witnessing depreciation.
- The global market cap for cryptocurrency has decreased 1.07% in the last 24 hours.
Depreciation in the market continues, impacting all the major tokens. Liquidation may be mainly due to the changes in the market due to the new Covid-19 variant, Omicron. The prevalent mood affected the smaller tokens and the major ones.
The upcoming market trends are variable, but the effects of this virus variant are evident on the market. Though some tokens bounce back while others try to do so, the market doesn’t seem fully recovered. The reinvigoration of the market will be evident from bullishness in the global market cap once it resumes the upward momentum.
Bitcoin bearish with a 1.04% depreciation
Though Bitcoin was performing better than other coins, some struggle is evident. After all, the “market” is people from different walks of life, with different lifestyles and motivations. The fear mood led to depreciation that brought BTC’s prices to the $56.5K range at writing.
Rethinking priorities led to a 3.61% depreciation in its value. The current market cap for Bitcoin is $1,068,831,925,638. The trading volume, at the time of writing, was $32,319,732,242. If we convert this volume, that would be 571,184 BTC. The circulating supply for bitcoin is 18,889,393 BTC.

Top gainer and loser

The overall crypto market tendency is that of liquidation, as seen in the case of the global market cap, which has been down by 1.07% in the last 24 hours. The same holds about the top three leading coins, which have also undergone depreciation. There is no clear idea of when these tokens will recuperate, but their resilience in previous cases shows that they might be back soon.
The crypto market’s high volatility means liquidations are a common occurrence. While volatility makes regulators worry about cryptocurrencies disrupting a country’s economy, cryptos allow investors to generate significant profits compared to traditional asset classes like stocks and commodities. Over 2020, amid the coronavirus outbreak, Bitcoin ended the year up 160% versus the S&P 500 at 14% and gold up 22%.
Here’s an interesting strategy being used by traders: margin trading or increasing the amount of money you have to trade with by borrowing third-party funds. Think of it as borrowing money from a stranger to buy Bitcoin or another cryptocurrency. While borrowing funds to increase your trade positions can amplify any potential gains, you can also lose your invested capital just as easily, making this type of trading a two-edged sword.
There are positive signs seen in the case of some smaller altcoins, which have shown better performance and are back in the market. For some, the horizon might be unclear when the overall surge in the market occurs, but for one who hopes the future cannot be anything but brighter.
Crypto isn’t just a toy anymore.
