Yesterday the Bitcoin price went downhill again. The price reached a new low this year and headed towards the 3000-US dollar mark.
Bitcoin fell down to 3,122.34 dollars around 10:20 according to CoinDesk. At the moment, the crypto currency seems to have recovered somewhat. In the past 24 hours the price rose by 2.54 percent to 3,207.90 dollars.
Nevertheless, a march to the 3000-US dollar limit does not seem unthinkable. The rate would only have to fall by a few percentage points and around 200 dollars to reach this level.
Bitcoin rate: Support at 3000 dollars
Mati Greenspan, economic expert for the eToro trading platform, explained that this development is of particular importance. The $3,000 limit would be the current level of support.
“This level played an important role during the Bull Run in 2017 and at that time it took about two months to break through,” he added.
Whether the price of the crypto currency can withstand this development remains to be seen. For about a year now, the price of the crypto currency has been in a downward movement. The largest crypto currency (measured by market value) has fallen by around 84 % since it reached a peak price of almost 20,000 US dollars.
Tim Enneking, Managing Director at Digital Capital Management, explained that the current development is a logical consequence of the rush to the coin. Natalia Karayaneva, Managing Director of Startup Propy, cited other reasons for the price development.
At the end of the year, entrepreneurs will have to pay taxes and plan for 2019. The selling of crypto currencies has fuelled panic.”
“Although crypto entrepreneurs are the driving forces and believe in Bitcoin, they still have to cover their expenses.
Hope for a Crypto Spring
Nevertheless, Karayaneva has hope for the coming year.
“Next year Dapps, protocols and security tokens will take off and we will see how the demand for Bitcoin and other tokens recovers.”
