|Over $26 Billion Wiped Off Cryptocurrency Market In 24 Hours by prof2007: 12:34am On Mar 10, 2020|
Over $26 billion wiped off cryptocurrency market in 24 hours after massive oil price plunge
-- The value of the entire cryptocurrency market fell over $26 billion on Monday.
-- Bitcoin, the biggest cryptocurrency by value, fell 10% in 24 hours.
-- Other big digital coins ethereum, XRP and bitcoin cash, posted double-digit losses.
-- The sell-off in digital coins followed a plummet in oil prices.
Cryptocurrency markets have plunged following a plummet in oil prices and further sell-off in stocks. The market capitalization or entire value of cryptocurrencies was down $26.43 billion from a day earlier at around 1:17 p.m. Singapore time, according to data from Coinmarketcap.com. The sell-off worsened as the day went on. Bitcoin, the biggest cryptocurrency by value, fell over 10% in 24 hours at around the same time.
The violent sell-off in the cryptocurrency market comes after international oil benchmark Brent crude futures plummeted 30% to $31.02 per barrel, its lowest level since Feb. 2016. That was sparked by Saudi Arabia slashing its official selling prices for oil after OPEC failed to agree a deal on production cuts. This has led to fears of an oil price war. Brent has since pared some of its losses.
Meanwhile, stock markets in Japan and Hong Kong fell sharply while U.S. stocks are set for a steep drop at start of trading on Monday. The other big digital coins ethereum, XRP and bitcoin cash, posted double-digit percentage point losses. Despite the losses posted Monday, bitcoin is up around 9% year-to-date. Huge moves in cryptocurrency prices are not unusual and these digital coins are known for their volatility. Market players however said this could be an opportunity to buy some bitcoin.
“For those who have long term investment horizons, bitcoin is absolutely a buy during these dips,” Jehan Chu, co-founder of Kenetic Capital, an investor in blockchain start-ups told CNBC. “We can expect more of this volatility sparked by macro health and financial shocks, but ultimately long term investments in the digital future and it’s key asset Bitcoin will be a winning strategy”
