The cryptocurrency market was adjusted on Thursday after rising in the first half of the week. The price of Bitcoin fell to the support of 5050 dollars, Ethereum fell to a level of 165 dollars, and XRP reached the level of 0.3300. The total market capitalization fell to 171 billion dollars.
Bitcoin reached a new annual maximum of $ 5,400, but failed to gain a foothold at this level and lost 4.5% in price. A strong level of resistance for Bitcoin is at the level of $ 5,300 and perhaps the main cryptocurrency will take several attempts to overcome this mark.
The main cryptocurrencies on Friday continue to gradually slide down as part of the correction that has seized the market. Bitcoin rate, according to Libertex, at 10.00 per day decreased in price by 0.83% - up to 5074 dollars with a capitalization of 89 billion dollars. Ethereum by this time weakened by 0.67% - to 164 dollars, its capitalization amounted to 17.4 billion dollars. XRP for the day fell in price by 2.74% - to $ 0.319 with a capitalization of $ 13.6 billion. Litecoin weakened by 0.51% to $ 77.9, its capitalization reached $ 4.8 billion.
The total capitalization of the crypto market was $ 170.7 billion. At the same time, the positive news that users from the UK will now be able to pay cryptocurrency from the Visa card did not affect investor sentiment. Customers of the Coinbase Exchange will get this opportunity; they will be able to use cryptocurrency in stores and withdraw cash from ATMs with a 2.5% commission.
According to financial experts, in the near future kryptoryok will continue to gradually slide down. So, Bitcoin can fall in price to $ 5,000, Ethereum - up to $ 162, XRP - up to $ 0.3, and Litecoin - up to $ 76. And in our forecast for Friday, we expect Bitcoin to decline further to the levels of 5030, 5000 and 4950 dollars, Ethereum to the levels of 162, 160 and 157 dollars and XRP to the levels of 0.3275, 0.3250 and 0.3200.
