BTC and ETHER Fall Substantially in $18 Billion Crypto Market Wipeout


Over the past 24 hours, the crypto market has recorded a loss of $18 billion, as major cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Ether, EOS, and Bitcoin Cash dropped by 4 to 13 percent. While Bitcoin ended the day with a 4 percent decline in its value, Ether, the native cryptocurrency of Ethereum, plummeted by 13 percent against the US dollar, becoming one of the worst performing major cryptocurrencies alongside NEO.

Tokens recorded the steepest drop in their value on August 11, as most Ethereum-based tokens such as Theta Token, Aion, Pundi X, Aelf, DigixDAO, WanChain, and VeChain recorded a drop of around 14 to 18 percent.

Where Does the Market go Next?

Due to the overly strong downtrend of major cryptocurrencies, in order for the cryptocurrency market to engage in a large mid-term bull run, the market would need to bottom out at a lower price range. However, failing to secure strong momentum in the higher region of $5,000 could lead BTC testing $5,500, which may lead to a further drop for the cryptocurrency market.
