Why does crypto price drops?

The cryptocurrency had showcased outstanding performance in charts this year. Experts and investors have high hopes that the Bitcoin market cap could go up to $1 trillion. However, things turned south and the cryptocurrency plummeted below $50,000. Why?

Another Covid-19 variant “Omicron” surge and concerns resurfaced in countries like the US and UK. In addition to that, high inflation is also one of the reasons why these digital assets plunged.

With these, the digital assets price dipped to 17.7% on Monday, Coinbase reported. This includes a 13.5% fall in its trading volume on Monday at 35.4 billion.

The Chinese Government’s recent crypto ban announcement and President Joe Biden’s $ 1 trillion infrastructure bill were also seen as reasons why cryptocurrencies’ prices are getting lower and lower each day.

US president infrastructure bill enclose cryptocurrency brokers or exchanges to declare the names and addresses of their customers, as well as cryptocurrency gains and tax requirements for businesses or exchanges receiving more than $10,000 in cryptocurrency or digital assets.

Red flags you should watch out for

Investors and market experts mentioned that buying the dip could be a good idea. After the bitcoin dip from $42,000, the cryptocurrency is now playing around $49,000. Thus, those who bought such digital assets during the dip have now reported a good recovery.

Likewise, Ethereum also shows recuperation from the dip as ETH’s price rises from $ 3,800 to nearly $ 4,100 today. Nonetheless, it is not always a good idea to buy on the dip. There are lots of cryptocurrencies that are turning out to be a mere scam. So, to avoid exposures, here are some of the red flags you should watch out for.

It is not always good to join the hype.

People tend to be amazed by the exciting candle movement and tend to follow what is trending. However not every green candle is a go signal for you to buy or sell assets. Recently, for instance, thousands of people have been scammed by the “SQUID” crypto.

Fans of the show, where the crypto’s name was taken, were lured by the impressive chart of the digital assets as it skyrocketed to 3,000%. This made them invest in the platform hoping that their investment could also grow drastically. However, malicious developers rug-pulled all the assets invested on the platform, taking away millions of dollars of assets of the investors.

Though there are red flags such as the inability to withdraw their assets, investors rode the bandwagon and still invested in the platform. Sadly, they lost all their funds.
