Bitcoin and Ethereum head into decline as investors look to play safe after China ban

Did you book your place at the Crypto AM Summit and Awards?

Crypto at a glance

The prices of most major cryptocurrencies have slipped up to seven per cent over the last 24 hours, as investors continue to keep their cards close to their chest after the latest China crackdown.

Bitcoin is currently changing hands for around $42k, down from just below $44k yesterday. Ethereum has also fallen to below $2,900 again. 

The cryptocurrency markets seemed to stick the landing after the wobble caused by China’s fresh ban on trading, but it appears that uncertainty is set to continue through the week.

Last week, flows into all crypto funds hit $95 million – the highest they’ve been since the week ending September 3 when they hit $98 million. This week already appears more subdued though, with volumes staying low amid a cautious environment.

Other leading cryptocurrencies – including Solana (SOL) and Cardano (ADA) – have largely followed in Bitcoin’s footsteps, also dropping around three to five per cent. Algorand (ALGO) is the big faller today.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The daily RSI is currently 45.70, up from 41.45  yesterday. Values of 70 or above indicate that an asset is becoming overbought and may be primed for a trend reversal or experience a correction in price – an RSI reading of 30 or below indicates an oversold or undervalued condition. 

Convince your Nan: Soundbite of the day

“Bitcoin is worth ~ $1Trillion and in the future probably a lot more. It is reflecting at us how much each of us value freedom.”
