US tax authority is arranging a crypto summit – wants to listen to the industry
The US tax authority, the IRS, will arrange a summit with several big crypto companies in early March.
Despite the fact that the bitcoin price has fallen sharply in recent days, this does not mean that the recent boom is over. This according to a crypto analyst.
On February 24, the bitcoin price fell sharply. In a short period of time, the price dropped by over ten percent – from $4,150 to the region around $3,500. In fact, during just one day, $15 billion was wiped out in the crypto markets.
According to CCN, many traders were not prepared for the sudden downturn. Now, the Twitter profile “The Crypto Monk”, a technical analyst for cryptocurrencies, tells the news site that the sudden downturn for bitcoin was simply a “technical movement”.
According to the analyst, the bitcoin price has not managed to break out of the low range between $3,190 and $4,250 in over three months.
When the price soared above $4,000, it absorbed most of the buy orders that were around those levels, which also meant that the rally could not continue upwards.
“Combined with multiple factors: decreasing buying pressure, long positions meeting their targets, and thus getting closed and short positions reopened as a switch”, says the analyst and continues:
“We get exactly what happened on Sunday. A brutal pullback. It doesn’t mean that the bullish momentum is over since important supports are still valid. $3,710 has been holding pretty well and we got an instant bounce reaction from this level”, says “The Crypto Monk” to CCN.
$BTC reacted on the previous consolidation level (around $3860).
It was due for a pullback and for now, as far as we stay above $3710, it’s ok.
Otherwise, $3500 should come quick.
