Bitcoin Drops to $29,000 in a Matter of Minutes

The cryptocurrency market suffered losses in the past few hours, and it remains to be seen if there will be another crash.

Bitcoin and Ethereum experienced a sudden drop in their prices, with Bitcoin falling to approximately $29,000 and Ethereum trading just below $2,000.

Yesterday Bitcoin had recovered to $30,000 but dropped sharply in less than 15 minutes on April 19, with longs being the majority of the liquidations.

Ethereum is also hovering around a crucial level of $2,000, and the bulls are fighting to defend it. The market is painted red, and all major cryptocurrencies were caught off guard by this move.

Bitcoin is currently trading at $29,320 after a 2% drop in the past 24 hours and has a trading volume of $23.5 billion.

Popular crypto analyst known as Kaleo shared a bullish chart on Twitter accompanied by the message “Don’t listen to the FUD”.

He also said the  dips are gifts and that this retracement is “beautiful” for tagging the range lows.
