The freezing crypto winter continues as the Bitcoin (BTC) crashes to $18,762. In the last 24 hours, its price has decreased by 5.85%. Since July, this has been the lowest point for Bitcoin, showing signs of a further downward slope.

On September 6, it was traded at $19,930 and experienced a sudden plummet. This price correction caused the liquidation of $74 million from BTC futures on the exchanges. However, before the BTC crash, Bitcoin experienced a 2% gain on the same day. If that trend persisted, it would have taken it to over $20k.

BTC crash and altcoins tumbling

The BTC crash has affected the entire crypto market. Most of the altcoins are in a slump right now. Though Ethereum has gone through the Bellatrix upgrade, it also shows a downward trend. Currently, ETH is down by almost 9%, and it’s worth only $1,517.89.

Meanwhile, other altcoins are also experiencing the severity of crypto winter. Binance coin (BNB) is currently down by over 5% in the last 24 hours. Moreover, one of the highest performing cryptocurrencies, Polygon’s MATIC, is experiencing a 10% downward slope.

Solana has also dropped by 5.5%, and Dogecoin has fallen by 6.46%. Polkadot and Cardano both have declined by 8% since yesterday. In sum, the entire market is in red.

Crypto market crash: Why is it happening?

There are many macroeconomic factors behind the recent crypto collapse. However, one of the main reasons behind it is the USD rate. The USD has reached its 20-year highest mark. The dollar spot index of Bloomberg is showing a record surge. Meanwhile, the treasury bills are also strengthening because of quantitative tightening from the Fed.

On the other hand, the traditional market is also falling. The NASDAQ has declined by 0.7%, and S&P 500 also plummeted by 0.4%. Similarly, the price of gold has also experienced a drop.

Since the cryptocurrency market depends on these macroeconomic factors and the traditional financial markets, it is showing signs of collapse.
