Crypto Crash News and Top Cryptocurrency Prices Today: The global crypto market cap has crashed again to $1.26 trillion, a day after showing some signs of recovery. For the last several days, crypto market cap has been stuck in the $1.24-$1.31 trillion range, indicating the struggle to break beyond this barrier.
On Monday, the global crypto market cap had jumped to $1.31 trillion, rising 3.66% over the last day, as several top crypto prices also witnessed upward movements. However, Monday’s crypto gains have vanished over the night, data on CoinMarketCap at the time of writing (May 24, 7.30 am) shows.
The global cryptocurrency market volume over the last 24 hours increased 37.22 percent to $84 billion. The total volume in DeFi was $9.62 billion, which is 11.46% of the total crypto market 24-hour volume. Stable coins volume was $73.70 billion, which is 87.74% of the total crypto market 24-hour volume.
Bitcoin price fell below $30,000 again, decreasing by over 3 percent in the last 24 hours. Meanwhile, Bitcoin’s dominance as top crypto asset also decreased by 0.36% to 44.22% over the day. Overall Bitcoin price has decreased by 2.44% in the last 7 days. At the time of writing, Bitcoin price was $29,227.
“The crypto market struggled to stay in the green as sellers dominated the market to open the week. Tether has paid $10 billion in withdrawals since the crypto market which indicates large-scale liquidations across the crypto market by the investors to recalibrate their portfolio,” Shivam Thakral, CEO, BuyUcoin, said.
“The crypto market is expected to stay in a bear phase for some time and most the investors will stay in a wait and watch mode,” he added.
Investors hesitant to return to the market?
Edul Patel Co-Founder and CEO of Mudrex, said, “Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies rallied on Monday after a well-known fashion brand Balenciaga announced to accept crypto payments but fell later in the day. BTC is currently trading at US$29,200, which is the lowest since January 2021. It is likely that BTC may break below the current level testing its support once again.”
“Since April, BTC has been on a bearish consolidation due to several macroeconomic factors and Terra’s collapse adding to it. It seems like investors and institutions have paused and are a little hesitant to return to the market,” Patel added.
