Bitcoin price news – live: BTC and Ethereum plunge by over 6 per cent


- Advertisment -

After a surge in Bitcoin’s value on Monday following a major upgrade to its network, the leading cryptocurrency by market value has plunged by over 6 per cent in the last 24 hours.

Bitcoin, and several other cryptocurrencies, including ethereum, solana, and cardano, as well as the meme coins dogecoin and shib inu have plunged in value in the last day.

The leading cryptocurrency has crashed from about $68,500 to $61,000 within a few hours.

Ethereum (ether) has also plunged by over 8 per cent from above $4,700 on Monday to close to $4,300 on Tuesday.

Most of the leading cryptocurrencies are down by about 6 to 8 per cent in the last 24 hours.

Dogecoin and shiba inu are also down by about 6 to 7 per cent in the last day.

Bitcoin’s price rose over the weekend, boosted by the rollout of the long-awaited Taproot update, which improves both the privacy and security of BTC.

Satoshi Nakamoto’s net worth among world’s wealthiest

Bitcoin’s record-breaking price rally means Satoshi Nakamoto is now in the top 15 of the wealthiest people on the planet.

The mysterious bitcoin creator has anywhere between 750,000 and 1.1 million bitcoins in their various crypto wallets, which haven’t been touched since 2010. In that time, their value has risen by more than 10 million per cent, giving a US dollar value of up to $73 billion.

There is also a legal battle currently underway in Florida seeking to uncover the true identity of Nakamoto.

PlanB says $135k price prediction ‘still in play’

Pseudonymous Dutch analyst PlanB has said his “worst case scenario” price prediction model is still on track.

The forecast, which he made back in June when bitcoin was below $34,000, puts BTC on course to hit $98,000 before the end of November before going on to reach $135,000 next month.

This would require a 50 per cent price rise over the next two weeks, which seems inconceivable unless you look at previous record-breaking rallies. Bitcoin is already up more than 300 per cent since this time last year and has already seen monthly gains of more than 50 per cent during the 2021 bull run.

Bitcoin receives biggest upgrade in four years

Bitcoin has received a major upgrade to its network through the roll out of the long-awaited Taproot update.

It is the biggest improvement to bitcoin’s underlying network since 2017 and will serve to bolster the privacy and security of the cryptocurrency.

The upgrade will also unlock the possibility of smart contracts through bitcoin’s network, while also improving scalability – a crucial element for BTC to succeed as a mainstream form of currency, as it has become in El Salvador.

Here’s what Paolo Ardoino, CTO at the crypto exchange Bitfinex, told us about what the Taproot upgrade means for bitcoin:

Bitcoin’s Taproot upgrade comes timely as development on the bitcoin blockchain has been accelerating quickly this year. Taproot will deliver more scalability, privacy and smart contract functionality on the bitcoin blockchain and greatly expands upon what has been possible so far.

We can expect Taproot to unlock the power of Lightning Network to bring true scalability to the bitcoin blockchain, readying it for use in more complex operations.

Ethereum, which also experienced a sharp price dip during this period after record highs on Wednesday, is inching back to the $4,800 mark.

Solana and cardano, whose values rose on Thursday, have since dropped to their respective prices 24 hours earlier.

Dogecoin has grown by about 2 per cent in the last day while shiba inu, which has surged by about 17 per cent in the last week, is up by about 8 per cent in the last 24 hours.

The global crypto market is priced at about $2.87 trillion, and the chart looks mostly green with signs of growth.

Southampton FC creates first ever ‘Crypto Fan Fund’ with bitcoin donation

Premier League club Southampton FC has launched a first-of-its-kind ‘Crypto Fan Fund’.

Considering the size of the club, it is a relatively modest 2 BTC ($130,000), which comes courtesy of the football club’s shirt sponsor Sportsbet.io.

“The donation of cryptocurrency in this way is a major first within elite sports partnerships,” a press release stated. “Unlike traditional fiat donations, the value of the fund can shift and increase in line with the market, allowing for the potential of greater investments in future seasons.”

Muslims told to stop using bitcoin in Indonesia

Muslims in Indonesia have been told to stop using cryptocurrencies by the country’s authority on religious compliance.

It is not an official ban on bitcoin, and crypto trading is still officially legal, but religious leaders claim that cryptocurrencies contain elements of uncertainty, wagering and harm, and are therefore not halal.

Crypto trading is hugely popular in Indonesia, with data from regulators in the country revealing earlier this year that there are around 4.45 million cryptocurrency investors – more than double the number of stock investors.

Mini price crash prompts calls to ‘buy the dip’

As has now become common throughout this record-breaking market rally, the latest flash crash has led to semi-ironic celebrations across social media and bitcoin forums to “buy the dip”.

One popular post on r/Bitcoin stated: “Time to stock up while it’s on sale!”

Even famed whistleblower Edward Snowden, who last tweeted bout buying bitcoin in March 2020 when it briefly crashed below $5,000.

With a new record high yesterday, every single flash crash so far in 2021 has proved to be a “flash sale”, as every time it has recovered to another al-time high.

Eventually, however, market momentum may run out, and the crash could take years, rather than days or months, to fully recover.

Bitcoin and Ethereum flash crash in unison

Bitcoin and Ethereum have mirrored each other’s price movements overnight, both suffering a flash crash before steadying.

Several other leading cryptocurrencies have copied this pattern, including Cardano (ada), Ripple (XRP), Solana (SOL) and Polkadot (DOT).

It’s pushed the overall crypto market back below $2.9 trillion, however by its own notoriously volatile standards it’s barely more than a blip. Whether it’s the start of something more serious will be determined within the next few hours, though BTC and ETH remain within 5 per cent of their all-time highs.
