Altcoins turn the corner, but Bitcoin remains in the red

June 25, 2024

THE price of Bitcoin dipped to around $58,000 yesterday before bouncing back above the $60,000 level, where it’s trading in the upper reaches this morning. The market cap leader is down 2.5% overnight. The Ethereum sell-off seems to have settled, with the price dipping by less than a percentage point over 24 hours.

Altcoins have clawed back some ground after the storm. Solana is up more than 7% over 24 hours, with Chainlink, Cosmos, and Cardano posting significant gains overnight. The mover of the day is Aave, which is in the green by 13%.

Uncertainty seems to be rippling in from all sides, say analysts. There’s the delayed interest rate cut from the Fed, and Mount Gox, the defunct exchange, is reported to start paying back victims of the 2014 hack this week. This means selling billions of dollars worth of Bitcoin, potentially leading to further pressure.
