China’s Latest ‘Bitcoin Ban’ Wipes Over $180 Billion In Crypto Market Value
The overall value of the global cryptocurrencies dropped to a low of approximately $1.8 trillion on September 24. According to CoinMarketCap, the cryptocurrency value dropped by about 9% and losing about $188 billion within less than three hours.
Yesterday’s crash wiped out nearly all the gains that had been made following the Monday sell-off which triggered the worst decline in the crypto market for weeks with top cryptos falling by between 5 and 12% on Friday.
Analysts such as Adam Crisafulli of Vital Knowledge media and Freddie Williams, of GlobalBlock a digital asset broker, have pointed out that the recent announcement by China is consistent with the country’s past rhetoric. However, they have warned investors against buying the current prices because other countries are likely to adopt China’s measures. Freddie notes that there has been little knee-jerk reaction from clients following the ban. He is optimistic that the crypto market will bounce back once the temporary FUD wears off.
