Many crypto market analysts have informed market participants that cryptocurrency prices are struggling in the market at their lowest trading levels, with Bitcoin suffering the most.
Data from Coinmarketcap states that Bitcoin, the biggest and most widely popular cryptocurrency, traded at $25,135 on August 15. It is the highest trading price when Bitcoin reflects a hike in the last month. But due to severe market volatility, prices are not increasing. Instead of an upward trend, all digital currencies are downtrending.
Several market analysts believe that during September, Bitcoin will trade at $20K and that it might decrease to $18-19K. If this price continues, then definitely, Bitcoin will be dead in the market and it may also lose its current market position and fame.
The Ethereum platform is ready to launch the Merge protocol in mid September. The protocol update and massive shifting of the Ethereum Blockchain from Proof-of-Work to Proof-of-Stake will directly or indirectly affect the crypto market, and prices may increase during the launch period.
