On Monday, major cryptocurrencies suffered losses as investors became wary of another potential cryptocurrency market collapse.
However, despite investors taking profits from Bitcoin (BTC), causing the asset to drop 6.56% in the last 24 hours, it is still trading in the green on the seven-day chart, up 1.07% during the previous seven days.
The flagship digital asset is currently trading at $45,002 with a market cap of $846.5 billion, according to CoinMarketCap.com.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin prices were still above $45,000, and more analysts expect a significant rise for it in the remaining months of 2021. this could mean if BTC stabilizes potentially, it could go to $50,000; if that happens, the remainder of the market will likely be boosted as well, as we witnessed at the beginning of the year.
Prominent crypto trader Tradermayne believes that maintaining the $46,000 – $44,000 level is the last line of defense before a more significant drop for Bitcoin.
El Salvador buys BTC dip
Nevertheless, El Salvador’s president has informed that the first nation to embrace Bitcoin currently possesses 700 coins.
On September 20th, El Salvador’s president, Nayib Bukele, said on Twitter that his country had “purchased the dip” by amassing 150 additional Bitcoin.
BTC has dropped from over $48,000 yesterday to a little over $45,000 today, suggesting that El Salvador has taken advantage of the reduced pricing to its benefit.
