Markets getting mashed this Monday; Ethereum, Cardano, Tron and Iota dumping.
Monday brings more doom and gloom to crypto land as markets have taken another turn south. A small rally over the weekend was not enough to form a sustained recovery and the bears have regained control to knock total market capitalization back below $180 billion.
After a couple of days holding around the $5,600 level Bitcoin has tanked again. BTC is currently down 5% on the day and trading at $5,320 at the time of writing, further losses look likely. Ethereum is falling hard and has hit a new low for the year. Dumping almost 11% on the day, ETH is down to $157, its lowest price since May 2017.
Altcoins are getting hammered again, even XRP can’t escape the bears this time, dropping 7.5% on the day. Cardano is disappearing down the digital drain, with another 12% shed today. EOS, Litecoin and Monero are all losing over 8% on the day. The only winner at the moment is Tether which has finally made it back to a buck.
In the top twenty Tron, Iota and Dash are dumping hard with an 11 percent lost in 24 hours. Neo, Ethereum Classic and Tezos faring worse, all dropping over 12% on the day.
For the second day Factom is the fomo pumper, adding 28% today to take FCT close to $8. Nothing has been posted on the team’s twitter feed to explain the momentum. ODEM is also defying the drop also with an 8% gain on the day. Loopring, Wanchain, Icon and Aion are all plummeting with 17-18 percent losses today.
Total crypto market capitalization is down 7% at the moment as another $12 billion gets dumped pushing things down to $173 billion. Since the same time last Monday markets have lost over 18%, or almost $40 billion. A number of analysts have predicted further losses for Bitcoin et al, and they’re getting plenty today. Another new yearly low is about to be made by the looks of things.
