From his perspective, he said that he initially thought that bitcoin price could find strong support and demand in the range between $21,000 and $24,000but now he’s not so sure about that.
He estimates that, with how fast the drop is happening, does not rule out the possibility of BTC falling below $10,000. If this prediction comes true, we would be facing an unprecedented situation in the history of Bitcoin, since the long-term growing trend that has characterized it would be broken, he warned.
“I don’t want to be a prophet of disaster. It’s not my style and I don’t like it when I read the apocalyptic ones. But I can’t rule out that possibility,” he said. In accordance with his projection, the cryptocurrency investor CryptoWhale he shared on Twitter that he also believes that bitcoin will hit $10,000 this year.
Market fears more sell-offs that will drive down the price of bitcoin

Right now, the market is in a state of “panic” or “extreme fear,” according to the index Fear & Greedwhat could motivate massive sales of BTC. Even from whales, that is, investors who have a lot of BTC volume, such as the Luna Foundation.
In keeping with this idea, other industry players have posted bearish predictions. Something that had already been done for a few weeks, when BTC fell from 37,000, the support it had maintained during the year. Although now they have become more acute, since the cryptocurrency came down from the USD 28,000 line, a price that it had not touched since 2020.
Although this is not everyone’s view. Despite the fact that BTC could fall further, some hold bullish conviction for the cryptocurrency in the long term. Regarding this, MinimalTrader Indian: «I already saw this movie. Let’s see friends, calm down. It is not the first time that the market has been like this and it will not be the last.
