Peter Brandt comments on Bitcoin and altcoin collapse
Senior market analyst Peter Brandt commented on the latest Bitcoin and altcoin crash. He shared historical data showing that previous market participants were doing worse. Still, he didn’t underestimate the current decline. “The current drop in Bitcoin is only the fifth-worst bear market in history as today’s low,” Brandt said in a tweet. He pointed to a drop of $164 from $269 in November 2013, saying we’re not in “uncharted waters.”
That is, he tried to create a calmer outlook among market participants. To that end, he said an 80 percent drop would point to $13,800, and an 85 percent drop would point to $10,350. Brandt also claimed that it could be “breakthrough” for the Bitcoin price to drop below the high of the previous cycle.
Brandt pointed to $13,000 in BTC
Last week, the analyst claimed that the leading crypto asset may not experience another steep price drop. As we reported on Kriptokoin.com, BTC briefly crossed $ 21,000 last week, causing optimism in the market. Brnadt may also have wanted to join this optimism. However, he had previously said that he expected a “final boom” and “market-wide panic” in BTC. He announced that they can expect a decrease to 13 thousand dollars. A Twitter user responded to Brandt’s latest tweet with the following statements:
Given the FTX events combined with the current macro environment, it wouldn’t be surprising to see us approaching the 10k level. Still, we are optimistic in the long run.
Market crash: What happened?
The cryptocurrency market continues to experience a massive bearish trend. The total crypto market cap has dropped over 11 percent the previous day. It slumped to $809 billion and as early as November 10, major cryptocurrencies turned red. In the last 24 hours, the overall crypto market volume has dropped 11 percent to $189 billion. Ethereum was on the verge of a significant decline while Bitcoin slumped to around $16,010. It traded just above $1,100.
Total volume in DeFi accounted for more than 4 percent of the total 24-hour volume in the crypto market. So it was $8.57 billion. The combined volume of all stablecoins is $180 billion, accounting for 95 percent of the total 24-hour volume of the crypto market.
