Looks like volatility's back on the crypto menu!

MOST cryptos are down over 24 hours as uncertainty from inside crypto and the global economy continues to impact market sentiment.

The price of Bitcoin is down by 1.3% over 24 hours while Ethereum is in the red by 0.5%. Many other cryptos are following a similar trend, with the exception of Aave (+1.7%) and Maker (+7%). 

Prices seemed to have rebounded somewhat yesterday but some analysts say news of the US Government sending a large amount of Bitcoin to a US exchange, possibly with the intent of selling the crypto, may have spooked investors further.

Will Bitcoin keep its level above the key level of $60,000, or is there more downside to come?
