Gaining profits from Thanksgiving made it difficult for the Bitcoin rally and prevented the token from breaking the 201
The world’s most popular cryptocurrency has sunk 5.9% to $ 16,242.70 in the last 24 hours. The slide was the largest in bitcoin since the coronavirus pandemic first rocked markets in March and reversed a week-long upturn fueled by a resumption of the scourge.
Bitcoin hit $ 300 from a record high on Wednesday when it peaked during the day at $ 19,494. As the coin cleared its $ 19,000 resistance level on Tuesday, all eyes were on whether it could rise above $ 20,000 for the first time.

“This instrument remains volatile and highly speculative as always,” Craig Erlam, a senior market analyst at Oanda Europe, said on Friday. “There may be more reasons to be bullish with cryptocurrencies than three years ago, but some things just haven’t changed. The wild journey continues.”
The sale of the cryptocurrency dragged on with other symbols throughout the day. Ethereum fell 8.1% and XRP sank 15.9% to 24-hour lows.
Bitcoin enjoyed an extraordinary impetus for Thanksgiving. PayPal’s acceptance of cryptocurrencies sparked the token rally in October, and bullish comments from Wall Street giants, including Mike Novogratz and Rick Reeder, further raised prices. New interest from retail investors extended growth ahead of Thursday’s meeting.

Bitcoin still doubled in 2020 despite the decline. The scale of its rise and fall during the year resembles its boom and breakthrough in 2017. It remains to be seen whether the intense price fluctuations pull Bitcoin back to about $ 3,000, as it did three years ago. While some have cited a broader investment base as key support for the cryptocurrency, others are not convinced that Bitcoin’s wild volatility will cool soon.
Bitcoin was trading at $ 17,054.31 at 8:20 a.m. ET, which is 135% more so far.
