Cryptocurrency Market Consolidation

The market is mostly in red but is showing a mixed colour. The average percentage change is ranging from 0,5-2%. The biggest loser is MOAC who decreased by 21%, and the biggest gainer is FunFair who increased by 10.82%.


News


The only significant news that came out in the last 24 hours is that a flood in China has damaged a lot of mining gear in the Sichuan province, as reported by cointelegraph. The province is known for the crypto mining operations, and cold weather and cheap electricity attracted a lot of miners there. After the heavy rain from 27 to 29 of June, the province was flooded which resulted in the damage of a lot of mining equipment.

Many news outlets, including Golden Finance – Chinese blockchain and crypto information platform who originally reported on this subject, have associated the floods in Sichuan with a drop in Bitcoin network’s hashrate.

The most significant story that came out over the weekend is the speculation on what pushed the price of Bitcoin higher. Some say it is because CME futures expired on 29th of June but there isn’t any detailed analysis of this correlation.

Conclusion


Cryptocurrency Market Consolidation: As you can see from the top cryptocurrencies that are covered in this report, the markets are strongly correlated. The rise in evaluation caught many off guard, which is why the prices are consolidating. What will happen after the consolidation there aren’t any signs, but if the pump was artificial, the dump will be worse, like when we saw the last two times this happened – on a short squeeze and again recently in June.
