Losses in cryptocurrencies deepened on 10 June and affected everything from Bitcoin [BTC] to the Altcoins. This led to tokens either setting or approaching their lowest levels of 2022. After the US announced the latest record-setting CPI data, BTC dumped below $30,000 and registered a two-week low.

The cryptocurrency market, at the time of writing, suffered a fresh 3.5% correction. Any uptick from here could help the bleeding patient.
