Bitcoin’s Price Dips Below $40K Amid Industry Struggles

Bitcoin faced a significant downturn, dropping below $40K for the first time since December 4th, causing widespread concern across the cryptocurrency market.

Monday witnessed notable setbacks for various digital assets, with Bitcoin and Ethereum experiencing a 35% and 21% reduction in discussions compared to the previous ETF approval week.

Market data reveals the presence of short-term panic orders, indicating an increased bearish sentiment. Despite the growing FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt), the market maintains a relatively balanced position between long and short positions, setting the stage for an intense battle.

Bitcoin ETF Issuers Acquires More Bitcoin Despite The Price Drop

Bitcoin ETF issuers, excluding Grayscale, collectively invested a staggering $3.63 billion, acquiring over 86,320 BTC at an average price of $42,000. Notable contributors include iShares Bitcoin Trust (BlackRock) receiving 4,808 BTC from Coinbase Prime, currently holding $1.33 billion, and Fidelity Bitcoin ETF accumulating 5,312 BTC, now totaling $1.22 billion.

Bitwise Bitcoin ETF secured 1,352 BTC from Flow Traders, reaching a total of $55.71 million and holding 10,152 BTC valued at $412.71 million. 

Meanwhile, Grayscale deposited 15,308 BTC ($623.8 million) to Coinbase Prime, accumulating a total of 63,991 BTC ($2.68 billion) since the ETF approval.

Despite the challenges, industry analysts anticipate favorable prospects for price rebounds as the FUD peaks. The cryptocurrency market remains dynamic, with investors closely monitoring developments amid ongoing market fluctuations.
