Bitcoin price chart:
Bitcoin is registering the biggest decline today as other major tokens from the top 10 are registering 3%-7% decline, while only binance coin is in green (+2.3%).
The total market capitalization dropped by more than 9%, to USD 292 billion, while bitcoin dominance, or the percentage of the total market capitalization, dipped below 60% for the first time since June 25.
As reported yesterday, the crypto market sentiment worsened in the past week as prices continue to decline.
Meanwhile, some market players say that the recent decline is healthy for bitcoin as its parabolic growth even prompted analysts to warn investors.
