Honorable mention

Bitcoin (start of the bear trend)

Bitcoin began its sudden crash (which, in turn, brought all other cryptos down as well) due to another giant selloff coming from the PlusToken pyramid scheme.

According to various online Blockchain data sources, participants in the $2.9 billion pyramid scheme are attempting to sell their BTC holdings again. Ergo, the Twitter account that tracks PlusToken’s activities, showed that 13,000 BTC or roughly $210 million were involved in this sale.


Technical analysis



Bitcoin’s price got destroyed over the weekend. Many analysts said that the sharp move to the downside will end at above $8,000. However, BTC dropped under it and can not get above again. This price drop was, as we mentioned above, caused by a pyramid scheme PlusToken giant attempting to get rid of its Bitcoin holdings.

Bitcoin’s volume increased as the price-drop occurred. Its RSI level is currently deep into the oversold territory.
