The overall crypto market registered a substantial dip on the last day of June 2022. Bitcoin encountered a loss of 2.27 percent on June 30. This brought its price to $21,111 (roughly Rs. 16.60 lakh) as per Indian exchange CoinSwitch Kuber. Similarly, dips of nearly two percent hit BTC on a global level as well. As per Binance and CoinMarketCap, BTC’s current price is hovering around $20,069 (roughly Rs. 15.80 lakh). Bitcoin, however, is not the only crypto asset that seems to be struggling with losses.
Ether and Solana — both popular altcoins — found themselves impacted by dips of 5.36 percent and 7.71 percent respectively.
While ETH is trading at $1,147 (roughly Rs. 90,589), SOL is currently priced $34 (roughly Rs. 2,740), as per Gadgets 360’s crypto price tracker.
Binance Coin, Cardano, Ripple, Polkadot, Avalanche, and Polygon also joined BTC, ETH, and SOL on the loss trail.
Even stablecoins, such as Tether, USD Coin, and Binance USD also failed to swim against the market movement for gains and rather ended up seeing losses.
Shiba Inu, Dogecoin, Uniswap, and Cosmos managed to see small profits.
The overall crypto market has stooped to $892 billion (roughly Rs. 70,43,820 crore) from what it was one day ago — $929 billion (roughly Rs. 73,11,028 crore).
