  • Bitcoin and Ethereum dip by over 5%; BTC sees 20% drop from $75,000 peak.
  • Despite short-term dips, indicators show long-term promise.

The cryptocurrency market is experiencing a downturn, with Bitcoin [BTC] and Ethereum [ETH], the top players, dropping by over 5% in the last 24 hours.

After reaching a record high of $75,000 in mid-March, the recent decline has sparked heightened investor interest. Interestingly, the leading cryptocurrency dropped by roughly 20% over the past three months.

Nevertheless, investor enthusiasm for Bitcoin persists.

Ignore the short-term noises 

Traders indicate that these fluctuations are short-term and view the drop as a “routine correction” in the market. 

This was further confirmed by AMBCrypto’s analysis of the Reserve Risk metric.

This chart assesses the confidence of long-term Bitcoin investors about the price. At the time of writing, the Reserve Risk stood at 0.002, signaling confidence among BTC holders.

With recent price declines, it may be a cue to start accumulating before a potential rise to $70,000, disadvantaging bearish positions. 

Echoing similar sentiments, Thomas Fahrer, co-founder of Apollo, said, 

“Price might fall to $40K, but it might rise to $400K. That’s just how it is, and it’s a great bet.”

Drawing parallels with BTC’s current price and its recent all-time-high (ATH), Raoul Pal, added, 

“This is the 4th 20% correction in BTC in 12 months…pretty ordinary stuff.”

Critics being critics 

However, skeptics like Peter Schiff maintain a bearish outlook on Bitcoin, predicting a return to $20,000.

Adding to the fray, crypto analysts, Rekt Capital, noted, 

“Bitcoin is getting closer and closer to its final bottom with each additional -1% to the downside.”

Despite criticism, Arthur Hayes, former CEO of crypto exchange BitMEX argues in his recent essay “Left Curve,” suggested that BTC’s recent dip presents a buying opportunity. He said, 

“This is the perfect time to take advantage of the recent crypto dip to slowly add to positions.” 

Additionally, Hayes highlighted that Bitcoin serves as an alternative investment during times of negative real yields, acting as a hedge against fiat currency depreciation.

All in all, these exchanges suggest that despite a rollercoaster ride, Bitcoin’s long-term perspective looks promising.
