The huge market shift of Bitcoin over the weekend probably sets the ground for a stabilization time before it can increase the price of cryptocurrencies.
In weekend trading Bitcoin fell below the 50-day average moving average and was back below it on Monday.
For me it has been reduced to an excess in system leverage,” said Leeor Shimron, Fundstrat’s vice-chairman of the strategy on digital assets.
“About $5 billion worth of bitcoin contracts was liquidated this weekend and $9.5 trillion was liquidated, including altcoin exchanges,” said Shimron.
BTIG CEO Julian Emanuel said he wants bitcoin to sell between $50,000 and $65,000 in a variety of shakes at the end of the weekend.
He said that it may have reached a phase of low volatility before going up again, as it consolidates.

Bitcoin traders buy further protection from the downside
Since rates have fallen to a three-week low, the hashrate of the Bitcoin Blockchain may have led some traders to shield. Any Bitcoin traders seem to be locking themselves into market bets to guard against more price declines after the latest slide of three-week below the cryptocurrency.
Bitcoin’s hash rate – the amount of processing power used to secure the network – has dropped by 46 percent to 106 exahashes per second, the lowest ever since November. Any bitcoin miners may also have been purchasers of downside security, traders stated.
Bitcoin and other digital currencies grew in 2021, with institutional investors increasingly interested in them, while large corporations such as Tesla and PayPal allowed substantial space shifts.
Starting on Tuesday, Venmo will present a new update that allows users to invest in 4 separate cryptocurrencies – bitcoin, ether, litecoin, and bitcoin cash – for a minimum of $1.
PayPal’s mobile payment application Venmo also allows consumers to purchase, maintain and exchange bitcoin and other digital coins, which is theoretically a major move in moving cryptocurrency on mainstream.
The development expands on PayPal’s initial move to enable users to purchase crypto via their principal platform.
In collaboration with the blockchain infrastructure company Paxos, Venmo said its cryptography function was also created, which PayPal used for its other digital asset initiatives.
