Bitcoin Market Surges Down in 24 Hours
The China crypto ban was viewed as the trigger that sparked panic selling among short-term holders. Besides, the market sell-off wipes out more than $500 billion from the crypto market on a red day.
As a result of this huge crash, all exchanges had heavy traffic and nearly all of them were unable to handle the surge. Even Binance, CoinBase, Huobi and Coinmarketcap went down for a shorter period.
Moreover, the crypto market has begun to show signs of growth, with BTC regaining its position above $35,000 after falling to $30,000. Ether, on the other hand, has surpassed $2,500 after losing half of its market value since its all-time high of $4,372 eight days ago.
