Bitcoin Crashes Below $40,000, Hits Lowest Point Since September

  • Bitcoin prices fell below $40,000 on Monday evening, reaching the lowest point in almost 3 months
  • The world’s largest cryptocurrency by market cap reached $39,677, according to data from CoinMarketCap
  • The flagship cryptocurrency has been on a downward trend since September, losing many key support levels

Bitcoin briefly fell below $40,000 on Monday evening, continuing its abysmal start to the year. The latest crash pushed the flagship cryptocurrency to its lowest point since last September.

The original cryptocurrency fell by more than 6% to $39,677, bringing its total losses in 2022 to more than 14%. This decline marks the largest at the start of the year since 2012.
Cryptocurrencies have been under intense pressure as the Fed continues to withdraw liquidity, which has been injected into the market since the start of the pandemic in 2020.


Its recent decline also pulled down other cryptocurrencies, as the second-biggest crypto by market valuation Ethereum fell below $3000. Altcoins such as Binance Coin, Polkadot, Solana, Cardano, and Luna also suffered heavy losses.
