Read Time:2 Minute, 39 Second

The crypto market prices continued to dip today with major cryptocurrencies bleeding due to selling pressure from traders. Bitcoin (BTC), the largest crypto by market cap, fell below the $40,000 mark while some smaller altcoins outperformed the significant players in the domain.

Today’s crypto prices suggest notable lows for both Bitcoin and Ethereum (ETH). This comes after the hype around Spot Bitcoin ETFs began slacking off. However, crypto analysts deem the recent bearish trend as an opportunity to ‘buy the dip’ as they’re optimistic about the crypto arena’s long-term potential.
