Bitcoin (BTC) and the larger crypto market had a harsh sell-off over the weekend, with Bitcoin and the broader crypto market losing about 10%. The larger crypto market has lost $250 billion in investor capital in the previous three days.
Bitcoin (BTC), the world’s largest cryptocurrency, has dropped below $33,500 as of last week’s close. Bitcoin losing its important support of the 100-day moving average (DMA) might lead to additional sell-off, according to Twitter user Blockchain Backer.

With today’s fall, the price of Bitcoin has dropped over 30% year to date.
