Bitcoin’s ‘Slump’

For more than a month, bitcoin has been fluctuating mostly between $10,000 and $11,000, CoinDesk data reveals.

Several analysts weighed in on this situation, emphasizing that the digital currency is experiencing lackluster sentiment.

“Hype has absolutely died down around Bitcoin,” said Erik Finman, a cryptocurrency entrepreneur who attained millionaire status at a young age by investing in the world’s most prominent digital asset. 

The cryptocurrency is in a “slump,” he stated.

“Volatility is some of the lowest we’ve seen in a long time,” emphasized Tim Enneking, managing director of Digital Capital Management.

“Clearly, BTC is consolidating,” he added.

“Interestingly, it has been consolidating recently in the upper half of the ever-narrowing pennant it’s been stuck in since the early June 2019 peak. This is the first time that’s happened in over three months.”
