  • If BTC’s price goes below the $22,300 range, it can drop further down. 
  • Negative sentiments prevailed in the market but a few metrics had a bullish bias.

Bitcoin [BTC] has been disappointing investors for quite a few days with its sideways price action. CoinMarketCap’s data revealed that BTC failed to register gains last week as its price dropped by 4%. At the time of writing, BTC was trading at $22,405.25 with a market capitalization of more than $432 billion.

The market might be in danger

As per the latest report by Santiment, a few analysts believe that BTC’s price can drop further in the coming days and even touch the $19,500 mark, which is concerning.

The possibility of BTC going down would emerge if it fell below the $22,300 range, the band in which the price has been fluctuating of late. 

The situation was critical, as a catastrophic decrease between 15% to 25% in the value of altcoins might occur if Bitcoin were to reach the $19,500 threshold. Thus, causing yet another collapse of the crypto market.

An overview of the current crypto market

LunarCrush’s chart helped provide a better understanding of the current scenario. The data showed that there was a decline in the global crypto market capitalization over the last week.

At press time, it was just over $1.02 trillion. Though the market cap went down, altcoin’s market dominance increased, which can be attributed to Bitcoin’s price decline. The total bearish sentiment metric went up significantly during the past week.

Another analysis from Santiment pointed out a similar negative trend in the crypto space. The report mentioned that there was a spike in negative sentiment around crypto on various social media platforms. Interestingly, the majority of the negative words on social media were coming from Twitter.

Caution is advised

While the possibility of a downtrend can’t be ruled out, a few of the on-chain metrics looked optimistic.

For instance, BTC supply outside of exchanges registered an uptick while supply on exchanges declined. This in general is a bullish signal, decreasing the chances of a price plummet.

The king coin’s MVRV Ratio also showed signs of recovery by increasing slightly in the last few days.
