The price of bitcoin fell below $ 50,000 this morning, having touched a local minimum at $ 48,555 on the Binance cryptocurrency exchange.
The rest of the cryptocurrencies are also falling – Ethereum, after hitting an all-time high above $ 2,600 yesterday, is now trading in the $ 2,200 area, while BNB, CoinMarketCap’s third largest coin, has dropped below $ 500 after the recent ATH of $ 638.
Note that the Bitcoin correction followed the news that US President Joe Biden proposed to raise the capital gains tax for the rich by as much as 100% – to 43.4% from the current 20%. Against the backdrop of such news, the US stock market began to decline – cryptocurrencies seem to correlate with fiat.
In connection with the current fall, about $ 1.6 billion of positions in cryptocurrency futures were liquidated.
In parallel, the dominance of bitcoin fell below 50% for the first time in three years.
