“Bitcoin failed to hold above the $20,000 (roughly Rs. 16 lakh) level last week due to a lack of buying activity. The volatility in BTC has increased in recent weeks, as the market participants reacted to the rising inflation and fluctuations in the US dollar,” Edul Patel, CEO and co-founder of Mudrex crypto investment platform told Gadgets 360.

Ether recorded slighted higher losses than Bitcoin. As per Gadgets 360's crypto price tracker, ETH is current trading at the price point of $1,292 (roughly Rs. 1.05 lakh).
