Crisis in the cryptocurrency market

In recent months, the cryptocurrency market has encountered difficulties due to factors such as the risk of economic recession and internal problems that arose after the collapse of Earth (Luna).

In times of weakness in the economy, volatile asset markets, such as cryptocurrencies, tend to lose investors who migrate their investments to safer options.

It is worth noting that Bitcoin reached its all-time high of $69,000 and today operates below $30,000. The overall loss for the crypto market amounts to around $1 trillion when considering this year’s data.
