BTC Falls Below $8,000 Again After Week Of Mixed Signals
As the crypto markets drop across the board, BTCs price has fallen the slowest, resulting in its steadily rising market dominance.

Bitcoin (BTC) has fallen back below $8,000, as the crypto markets continue to slump in the wake of a week of mixed crypto news, ranging from the FUD fallout caused by the upcoming Google crypto ad ban to several wins for Blockchain adoption seen in China and Canada.


BTC is currently trading at around $7,729, down almost seven percent over a 24 hour period by press time.


Amidst the falling market prices since the new year, BTCs market dominance has been slowly rising, contributing to BTCs slower price fall as compared to the other top coins on CoinMarketCap. At press time, BTCs market dominance was 44.3 percent.


Ethereum (ETH) is getting close to $500, trading for around $515 and down almost 15 percent over a 24 hour period by press time. Ripples (XRP) price is also falling, trading for around $0.61 percent and down almost 11 percent over a 24 hour period by press time.


Crypto Twitter personality @WhalePanda tweeted this morning about the futility of looking for concrete explanations for large price drops in the crypto markets, referencing the ongoing US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) probe:

The only coin in the green out of the top ten coins listed on CoinMarketCap is IOTA, trading at around $1.29 and up almost 14.5 percent by press time. Cardano is down the most of the top ten coins, trading for around $0.14 and down almost 19 percent over a 24 hour period to press time.

Total market cap is below $300 bln, currently at around $295 bln.

The falling market prices had previously been attributed to a sell off of $400 mln in BTC and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) by a trustee of the now defunct Mt. Gox exchange. However, a newly released report from a trustee meeting early this month denies any correlation between the large sell off and BTC/BCH prices, a claim not every crypto enthusiast believes.
