It’s been a rough weekend for cryptocurrency holders, as the overall crypto market cap dropped below the key $2 trillion level, currently sitting at $1.94 trillion.
There were major drops across the crypto industry, as investors are worried about the Omicron situation across the world and how it may impact the market.
At the time of reporting, Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) traded at $41,651.69, down 0.81%. In the past 7-days, the apex crypto is down by 11.69%.
Last week, BTC traded around $47,000 on Monday and dropped into the $43,000 range by Friday.
As the turbulence continues, BTC has dropped below a $1 trillion market cap, now sitting at $787 million.
In the face of the massive volatility, a well-known Bitcoin analyst tells his 1.7 million Twitter followers that the market is only halfway into the cycle (2020-2024).
I know some people have lost faith in this #bitcoin bull market. However we are only halfway into the cycle (2020-2024). And although BTC experiences some turbulence at $1T, the yellow gold cluster at S2F60/$10T (small black dots are 2009-2021 gold data) is still the target IMO. pic.twitter.com/xWFQKKnndP
