Volatility in Bitcoin
The world’s largest cryptocurrency has seen significant volatility in recent months. Bitcoin touched an all-time high of $61,000 earlier this week, but a drop of 10% accelerated the volatility in the cryptocurrency market. The recent volatility liquidated nearly $2 billion worth of long Bitcoin positions. The latest data from Glassnode, a crypto analytics platform, showed that BTC’s supply at digital exchanges is plunging as Bitcoin whales are moving money to cold storage and unknown BTC wallets. BTC is down nearly 2% in the last 24 hours as the overall market cap of digital assets is hovering around $1.7 trillion.
