Bitcoin’s (BTC) price has fallen to its lowest point since July 2021 as a result of five consecutive days of falling prices. 

The price drop has coincided with a decline in the larger financial markets, which has spread to other prominent cryptocurrencies like Ethereum (ETH), Cardano (ADA), and Terra (LUNA).
