Bitcoin (BTC), a bullish cryptocurrency, has “one more leg down” before a resurgence. One trader says.
Crypto Ed, a popular Twitter account, said that the pullback from last week’s record highs of $68,500 was deeper than expected.

Others, including long-time trader Peter Brandt, framed Monday’s record in a record slump for Bitcoin against the United States dollar.
“$1 in the year I was born is equivalent to 8 cents today.” “When my grand children are my age, $1 today will probably be worthless,” was a tweet read Wednesday.
