Smaller cryptocurrencies, including Solana, XRP, Terra, Cardano, Polkadot, Stellar, Dogecoin, Polygon, Chanlink, Uniswap and Litecoin fell sharply due to an increase in profit booking activity.
Commenting on the aggressive selling in the crypto market, Edul Patel, CEO and Co-founder, Mudrex- A Global Algorithm Based Crypto Investment Platform, said there are chances that the crypto market will remain shaky over the next 24 hours. He also warned investors to remain cautious.
“We saw a profit booking across the cryptocurrency spectrum over the past 24 hours. Investors should watch out before taking aggressive trades as the markets are a bit shaky at the moment,” he said.
“The crucial support levels for BTC and ETH are $46,000 and $4,000 respectively”.
