According to the CoinMarketCap data, Bitcoin and major altcoins dropped for the third time in the last 10 days, making the crypto investor wonder again, whether this dump is a correction or not.
The entire market cap of cryptocurrencies dropped nearly 300 billion from $2.078 billion to $1.752 billion in the last 24 hours.
As shown above, the top 10 cryptos are all bearish with DogeCoin (DOGE) taking the biggest hit in the top ten dropping 26.24%. Moreover, Ripple (XRP) loses 17.8% today as the rest follow with losses between 10 and 5 percent.
Bitcoin Price Dumps Sixth Time in 7 Days
Cryptocurrency king Bitcoin dropped for the sixth time in the last seven days. Moreover, the price drop came as much as 22.46% to $48.8k from $62.7k.
The price drop came after President Joe Biden was asked to propose doubling the capital gains tax for the wealthy. US investors already faced a capital gains tax in case the investors sell the crypto after holding more than a year.
Even more, the nervousness among the crypto investors could be seen in another speculative tweet that came up from Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen.
