This means that Bitcoin’s and the other CCs price movements are not tied to these other asset classes.”

Technicals from

A decent rebound from a bad start to the weekend. Bitcoin fell past crucial points of $6500 and even $6100 yesterday to near falling below $6000. Not good for a coin that’s been in relative free fall for a week now. We’ve seen a rebound of nearly 2% today which can be optimistic, but we’re looking at a full indicator list for sells. So the optimism may be short lived.

We’re seeing some analysts (like linked above) call for prices as low as $4,000. So the bottom may still be to come. But there are still enough investors in the long term success of crypto to write things off completely.
