Crypto Market Recap Last Week

In the second week of May, the crypto market experienced a relatively quiet period. Bitcoin, the king of cryptocurrencies, fluctuated within the range of ($60,000 – $65,500 USD) with no significant movements. Notably, this is the fourth consecutive week Bitcoin has traded in this price range, creating a sense of boredom for many investors.

It’s worth mentioning that former U.S. President Donald Trump voiced his support for the crypto market last week. However, this statement seems to have had little impact as trading volumes continued to languish in anticipation of fresh news.

With Bitcoin in a sideways phase, the majority of other cryptocurrencies (Altcoins) also followed the footsteps of the “crypto king” and moved within narrow ranges. However, some Altcoins with inflated valuations relative to their actual utility began to experience liquidity pressures and witnessed sharp price declines.
