Bitcoin’s price fell sharply following the release of the US inflation report. The price of the token fell below $30,000 according to Coindesk data.
After the fall, the cryptocurrency lost about 5% of its value but recovered within minutes. At the moment, its price dropped to $29.1 thousand per unit, which was the lowest level since July 2021. At the time of writing, the token almost completely recovered the decline and returned to the $31.3k level.
The short-term decline was probably due to the release of the US inflation report. According to the Financial Times, the numbers fell short of analysts’ expectations. Pundits had forecast a drop from 8.5% to 8.1%, but the figure stalled at 8.3%.
A day earlier, CNBC, citing Glassnode, reported that due to Bitcoin’s continued decline, 40% of cryptocurrency buyers went into the red. Your investment fell below the buy level. How many of them recorded losses is not specified.
