Bitcoin meets resistance below $70k while Mt Gox moves the markets

BITCOIN and Ethereum prices dropped by over 1% overnight, with many other cryptocurrencies also dipping. Investors rejected the $70,000 price level for Bitcoin yesterday, while Solana is holding onto some overnight gains, and Chainlink is notably up by 5%. 

The crypto market seems to be taking a breather this morning, as evidenced by the market cap of the entire industry remaining virtually unchanged overnight.

In crypto news, around $9 billion worth of Bitcoin was moved to a single wallet this morning by defunct crypto exchange Mt Gox. Many believe this is part of the asset distribution process to creditors, which some analysts think could be adding selling pressure to certain crypto markets.
