Bitcoin’s near 50% reduction from all-time highs surprised analysts as China’s crackdown fueled bearish sentiment. Bitcoin had a unstable Tuesday, for a short time it was dipping below $30,000. That was for the first time since January before settling around $33,000 at press time. The world’s largest cryptocurrency by market value, is Bitcoin.  It is still up about 11% year to date, according to CoinDesk 20 data.
“The primary reason for the sell-off has been the crackdown in China on mining operations and banking services,”. The analyst at multi-investment platform eToro who is Simon Peters, talked about this.
Regulatory forces from China is always a very big problem for cryptocurrencies. Which is why the near-50% reduction from all-time highs surprised some analysts.
“The news out of China regarding mining and trading crypto may seem dramatic to newer investors, while those with experience should used to the progression of this news over the past several years,” . This was by Sean Rooney, head of research at crypto asset manager Valkyrie Investments.

The effect of regulatory crackdown

Maybe an exasperated regulatory crackdown was not fully priced in given how the price of bitcoin almost doubled over the past year.
“Today we polled our 950+ person community to gauge their opinion on where the bitcoin bottom may be, and we received split answers for $28,600 and $25,500,” . Nick Mancini wrote about it. He is also the research analyst at crypto sentiment data provider Trade the Chain.
In addition, others stay more hopeful and confident about the future, where bitcoin’s price is going. “Bitcoin is currently trading approximately one-third below its long-term exponential trend line,”. A phenomenon that it has only exhibited for 20% of the time in bitcoin’s history, according to Stephen Kelso.
As the head of markets at ITI Capital said. “Given the market forces and demand for scarcity assets to protect wealth, ITI believes this is an attractive buying opportunity for investors.”
For now, $30,000 remains a key support level, even though technicals show limited upside towards $34,000-$36,000.
