Last Week in Crypto Market

After surpassing the all-time high and reaching a historic peak at 73600, the price of Bitcoin underwent a significant correction last weekend. Bitcoin dropped to 64700 (equivalent to a correction of about 12% from the peak), although there weren’t many clear reasons for this price decline.

It could be seen as a corrective phase to prepare for further growth, as large funds continue to buy into Bitcoin. Currently, the price of Bitcoin is hovering around 67500.

However, following this upgrade, Ethereum also experienced a sharp correction, dropping from 4100 to 3400 (equivalent to a 17% correction from the peak).
