The crypto market is down again this morning after an impressive rally

The crypto market is down again this morning after an impressive rally that’s seen Bitcoin gain around 70% in a month. The leading cryptocurrency is trading around the $47,000 mark at the time of writing, down about 3% over the past 24 hours

A correction is to be expected after such a long streak of positive price action, as buyers look to take profits. But are we now due a period of consolidation before another move? Will this prove to have been a dead cat bounce, or are many commentators correct in their belief that this is just the start of another bull run in the second half of 2021?

Despite flagging somewhat this week, Bitcoin has still seen a record amount of cryptocurrency transferred through its network. More than $188 billion worth of bitcoin was transferred on Tuesday, according to figures from blockchain data firm Glass node. That’s more than 60% up on what we were seeing in April when the leading cryptocurrency hit all-time highs of more than $60,000.

The network is also looking strong again. The Bitcoin hash rate, which is an indicator of how secure the network is and how hard it would be to attack, has made a remarkable recovery since it crashed following China’s crypto mining clampdown earlier this year. On Tuesday, the hash rate was 152 EH/s – triple what it was when it bottomed out this year on 28 June.Name PricePrice Change (24h)Price change (7 days)Bitcoin (BTC)$46,668.62–3.62%+4.87%Ethereum (ETH)$3,084.84–3.82%+2.58%XRP (Ripple)$1.11–5.53%–2.01%Litecoin (LTC)$170.44–3.98%+2.55%Bitcoin Cash (BCH)$616.20–6.01%–1.91%

“Bitcoin to $50,000. Great news for bitcoin holders. Bad news for mom and pop. The primary reason I invest in bitcoin, gold, & silver is because I do not trust our leaders, the Fed, Treasury, nor the stock market. Unfortunately mom and pop who save money do.”

Crypto at a Glance

The cryptocurrency markets are broadly down this morning, as the majority experience pullback after recent strong performances. A total of $150 billion in value was wiped off the total value of the cryptocurrency market over the last 24 hours, though it’s still holding at over $2 trillion.

After breaking above $50,000 earlier this week for the first time since May, bitcoin has now fallen back to around $48,000 as of time of writing – down more than 3% over the past 24 hours but still up 7% over the past week.

It’s a similar story across the board, with alt coins experiencing even greater retraces. Ethereum is down around 5% to $31,150, while XRP and Bitcoin Cash have seen even greater declines of around 7%. Will they recover before the weekend?

In the news, Deloitte’s recent blockchain report has found that the majority of financial professionals expect digital assets to replace government-issued currencies within a decade. In the survey, 76% said bitcoin and crypto could serve as an alternative to or replacement for fiat currencies in the next five to 10 years.

“Crypto’s not a fad. There are elements of this, certainly, that feel a little speculative and bubbly… but if we zoom out and look at the secular 10-, 20-year trend… we view crypto as a fundamental enabling component of this new digital world.”
