Bitcoin Maintains $42K Amid the China FUD: Cardano the Only Top 10 in Green (Weekend Watch)

Yesterday, the crypto markets were subject to another bloodbath. This time it was initiated by China. Bitcoin lost $4,000 in a matter of minutes, but it has made a partial recovery. Many altcoins suffered more and some failed to rebound decisively. ETH is still below $3,000.

Bitcoin Recovery Attempt

These past days have been good for the primary cryptocurrency. It had recovered from the sub$40,000 price fall and gained several thousand dollars in value.

Yesterday’s retest at $45,000 was the culmination of this. It reached a multi-day record. However, as the bulls were about to launch another price surge, China’s central bank reminded the world that it was a hostile country towards the cryptocurrency industry.

According to reports, the institution’s most recent statement was published just weeks before. It prohibited payment companies and financial institutions from facilitating cryptocurrency trade.

Prices fall immediately when China targets the digital asset space, as is typical. Bitcoin fell hard, losing more than $4,000 an hour.

The bulls initiated a push after it dropped to $40,600. BTC quickly recovered almost $3,000 and briefly surpassed $43,000 in the hours that followed. The asset is currently at $42,500.

ETH below $3K; Only ADA Green

During yesterday’s bloodbath, alternative coins suffered more than their leader. Ethereum dropped from $3,100 to $2,750 per day, a daily high, to $2,750. Although Ethereum gained some ground, it is still far below the $3,000 mark.

Most alts are still in red on a 24-hour scale. These include Binance Coin (-6%) and Ripple (4%) as well as Solana (2.5%), Polkadot (6%) and Dogecoin (5%) respectively. Terra (2.5%) is also in red.

Cardano is one of the few exceptions that has a slight 2% increase. ADA is now above $2.3.

Celer Network, which has a 27% increase to $0.16, is the largest gainer among the lower-cap altcoins. The most lost altcoins are Huobi Token (24%), Filecoin (-13%) and Curve DAO Token (11%), NEAR Protocol (-11%) and Bitcoin SV (10%). Dash (-10%) has the worst.

The cryptocurrency market cap fell by almost $200 billion per day, but it has since recovered about half of that amount and is now at $1.9 trillion.
