Bitcoin on Thursday, January 4 recorded a notable loss of five percent. The crypto asset that was trading at $45,201 (roughly Rs. 27.6 lakh) just 24 hours ago, has slipped to the price point of $43,070 (roughly Rs. 35.8 lakh). This slippage was observed after a report by crypto financial services firm Matrixport anticipated the rejection of Bitcoin spot EFT proposals by the SEC in the US. Market analysts predict this volatility to prevail for some days to come, at least unless the SEC takes a concrete decision about approving ETFs.

"The Matrixport report induced panic among some market participants, leading to selloffs. Despite plummeting to a low below $41,500 (roughly Rs. 35.8 lakh), Bitcoin swiftly recovered and is presently trading around the $43,000 (roughly Rs. 35.8 lakh) mark. Bitcoin's current support is situated at the $43,150 (roughly Rs. 35.9 lakh) level, with resistance at the $43,600 (roughly Rs. 36.3 lakh) level,” Edul Patel, CEO of Mudrex told Gadgets360.

Ether followed BTC on the loss trail with a price slash of 5.92 percent. At the time of writing, Ether was trading at $2,227 (roughly Rs. 1.8 lakh). In the last 24 hours, the value of ETH has deducted by $139 (roughly Rs. 11,580).

On Thursday, majority altcoins registered losses. These include Tether, Ripple, Solana, Cardano, Avalanche, and Dogecoin.

Other loss-making cryptocurrencies include Polkadot, Polygon, Chainlink, and Shiba Inu among others.

“This sudden decline in BTC triggered a more than 20 percent drop in Altcoins within minutes, although some recovered swiftly, like ARB and LDO. The cause of this decline remains uncertain, with some speculating about a report on BTC spot ETF denial from Matrixport, although this information may not be true,” the CoinDCX Research Team told Gadgets360.

The overall crypto market cap dropped by 4.91 percent in the last 24 hours. At the time of writing, the crypto sector valuation stands at $1.65 trillion (roughly Rs. 1,37,45,283 crore), showed CoinMarketCap.

Meanwhile, a small number of underdog crypto assets managed to mint small gains. These include Leo, Iota, Cartesi, Dogefi, and Bitcoin Hedge.

“Standout performers of the day remained in the famous L2 Arbitrum, ARB (+ three percent), and liquid staking solution Lido Finance, LDO (+ eight percent). While the total liquidations of yesterday remained at more than half a billion dollars, total crypto exchange volumes crossed the mark of one trillion dollars after two years, which shows that big money has started to flow back into the crypto market,” the CoinSwitch market desk added.
