“After a week of crossing the $30k mark, Bitcoin has dipped below the threshold amidst the abating banking crisis, rising treasury yields, and the shift of investors’ sentiment towards ‘risk-off’ assets. Dipping ~2% in the last 24 hours, BTC is trading in the $29.5k zone. Post the Shapella upgrade, ETH continues to trade above the $2k mark,” Parth Chaturvedi, Crypto Ecosystem Lead at CoinSwitch, said.
