Crypto Markets Lose $70 Billion in 48 Hours as Altcoins See Significant Declines

Bitcoin Faces Minor Correction as Altcoins Experience Significant Price Drops

Bitcoin, known as one of the more stable digital assets, has only seen minor daily declines. However, other cryptocurrencies have experienced notable price drops. Avalanche leads the race once again with a significant 12% dump, followed by APT, LDO, FIL, NEAR, OP, and others.

Alts Dump Hard

Most altcoins were experiencing price hikes until recently, reaching impressive local peaks. However, the landscape has shifted, and red dominates almost all charts.

Ethereum spiked to $2,100 after news that BlackRock had filed for a spot ETH ETF. However, the second-largest cryptocurrency quickly lost value and now trades $200 away from that local high. Other altcoins such as Binance Coin, Tron, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, Shiba Inu, Litecoin, and Toncoin are also down by approximately 2-3% in the last 24 hours. Additionally, Solana, Cardano, Chainlink, MATIC, and DOT have experienced declines of up to 8%. Avalance, one of the larger-cap altcoins, lost 12% of its value, trading close to breaking below $20.

The total crypto market cap has dropped by over $70 billion since the Thursday rally and is currently below $1.4 trillion on CMC.
