Bitcoin on Monday, April 29 stepped into the trading rink at the price point of $63,192 (roughly Rs. 52.6 lakh) after recording a loss of 0.57 percent in India. On international exchanges such as Binance, Bitcoin is trading at an almost similar price of $63,102 (roughly Rs. 52 lakh). As per market analysts, Bitcoin's short-term indicators and sentiment lean towards a bearish outlook.

“There seems to be a bearish trend forming for BTC, and we can expect some slow-moving days ahead. Immediate resistance is around $63,400 (roughly Rs. 52.8 lakh),” Parth Chaturvedi, Investments Lead, CoinSwitch Ventures told Gadgets360.

Majority altcoins, as of Monday, found themselves curling under losses as per Gadgets360's crypto price tracker.

These include Tether, Binance Coin, Solana, Ripple, and Dogecoin.

Minor but notable price reductions have also been clocked by Cardano, Shiba Inu, Avalanche, Polkadot, and Chainlink alongside Polygon, Near Protocol, and Leo.

“Following Bitcoin's halving, crypto assets witness heightened volatility, with top tokens maintaining neutral sentiment. A recent plunge sparked by Bitcoin's decline resulted in liquidations affecting altcoins widely,” Rajagopal Menon, Vice President, WazirX told Gadgets360. “The price drops could also possibly influenced by the Japanese yen's downturn against the USD.”

The overall crypto market cap tumbled by 0.73 percent in the last 24 hours. The sector valuation, at the time of writing, stood at $2.35 trillion (roughly Rs. 1,95,96,121 crore) as per CoinMarketCap.

On international exchanges, the price of ETH is $3,218 (roughly Rs. 26.8 lakh), showed CoinMarketCap.

Only a handful of cryptocurrencies managed to trail behind ETH on the profit-side of the crypto chart on Monday. These include Tron, Litecoin, Cronos, Neo Coin, Qtum, and Iota.

“This week's macro events, such as the Fed's fund rate and unemployment rate announcements, may introduce additional volatility to the market,” the CoinDCX Research Team told Gadgets360.
