Crypto market analysis

The precipitous decline of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies seems to have slowed, leaving investors to tally their losses following one of the most severe drops in recent times. 

Despite this, there are indications that the rapid decline may be coming to an end. BTC has gained 14 percent in the previous day, passing again over the critical psychological threshold of $30,000, while the cryptocurrency market as a whole has gained 13.5 percent during the same period. 

A ripple of panic rippled through the cryptocurrency market this week as the Terra (LUNA) cryptocurrency plunged by more than 99% overnight. The broader drop had driven another stablecoin, Tether, below its dollar peg, further eroding confidence.
