Yesterday’s BTC Market
Yesterday’s BTC market was in a slump.
The price dipped below $23,000 (approximately ¥3 million) in the early hours of the morning, but when it stopped falling at the mid-$22,000 (approximately ¥2.85 million) level, it continued to struggle around $23,000.
BTC rebounded just short of $24,000 (about 3.1 million yen) the day before yesterday and broke below $23,000 early yesterday morning.
However, following a report by the FT newspaper that Mr. E-Mask was taking a positive stance toward cryptocurrency payments on Twitter, Dogecoin (DOGE) rose, and BTC stopped falling in the mid-$22,000 range.
At the beginning of international trading hours, European stocks that had been in a bearish tone rebounded, and BTC recovered to the $23,000 level when US stock futures rose before opening.
U.S. stocks rose steadily after the opening, but after receiving reports that BlackRock had increased its holding ratio, Silvergate stocks rose, and crypto-asset-related stocks, which had been steady, fell and stalled. BTC has broken below $23,000.
Since then, the price has continued to trade at $23,000/mt.
