Bitcoin: Why this might be the right time to ‘buy the dip’
- Bitcoin’s liquidations rose when its price neared the $44,000-mark
- Market indicators mostly remained bearish for Bitcoin
As the market leader, Bitcoin [BTC] has always played a major role in shaping the rest of the crypto-market. For instance, when BTC’s price dropped significantly over the last few hours, other cryptos simply followed suit.
This fuels an important question though – Should investors take it as an opportunity to buy more BTC?
Bitcoin’s price is dropping again!
After a comfortable rally, Bitcoin finally registered a price depreciation. According to CoinMarketCap, at press time, BTC was down by more than 4% in the last 24 hours alone. In fact, WhaleWire revealed that BTC wiped out an entire week’s worth of gains in just 6.4 minutes.

Should investors buy the dip?
While the king of cryptos’ price is down, it might open the right window for investors to accumulate more BTC. In fact, Santiment recently highlighting the same fact too. The crypto-analytics platform claimed,
“Crypto has experienced its fastest drop in 4 months as markets have corrected and caused mild trader concerns. There is a high level of buythedip calls, which typically means that there is a bit of overeagerness and FOMO on these low prices.”
