The price of Bitcoin (BTC) has dropped below $ 30,000 in the current crypto market crash. As of today, the BTC price has moved above the 30,000 level, valued at $ 30,117 at the time of writing.
The fall in the value of Bitcoin is part of the story of the collapse of the overall crypto market in the last few days, especially due to the defeat of Terra (UST and Luna).
However, experts point out that the BTC price may bounce back from its current level. They say the number of people holding at least one BTC has reached an all-time high, indicating that the BTC may return to its current level even after the overall “extreme fear” feeling continues in the crypto market.

It may take some time for investors to recover from the crash
Edul Patel, CEO and co-founder, Mudrex thinks it may take some time for investors to return to the market after witnessing a massive crash last week.
“Bitcoin was somewhat stable over the weekend, but on Monday it dropped again to US $ 29,000. Reversing the downward trend will only be possible if the BTC continues to trade its support between the US $ 27,000 and US $ 30,000 levels, ”Patel said.
He added that since BTC does not appear to be selling well, it could keep short-term buyers active in the market.
