When will the drop in Bitcoin end?
With the shares of Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk from his social media account, Bitcoin rose rapidly until April 14 and provided a return of over 100 percent. However, Elon Musk, who ignited the rise in Bitcoin, was also the architect of the decline that started from the historical peak.
In mid-April, Musk announced that they suspended the decision to use Bitcoin in the Tesla sale, noting that Bitcoin mining increased fossil fuel and coal consumption. A blow to Bitcoin, which fell with this statement, came from China. China has announced that it will not allow cryptocurrency mining and that it will not be able to trade with cryptocurrencies.
Cryptocurrency investors began to question the reason for the decline after the sharp fall in bitcoin. Bitcoin and Ethereum, the cryptocurrencies with the highest trading volume, started the weekend with a sharp decline. Bitcoin price, which moved between 51 thousand and 50 thousand dollars, decreased from 53 thousand to 42 thousand dollars. In terms of market dominance, there, which is in 2nd place, also showed a decrease of close to 20 percent. Ethereum tested below $3,500. So, why did Bitcoin fall, how many dollars today? Will Bitcoin continue to decline?

BITCOIN OR ALTCOIN?
There are different opinions about when the recovery in cryptocurrencies will occur. While some argue that the recovery will start from altcoins, some think that the recovery of Bitcoin, which led to the last decline, will revive the demand for altcoins. Another topic of discussion is whether cryptocurrencies have entered a bear market or are in a correction. If the markets entered a bear market dominated by a bearish trend, this trend lasts for at least 6 months, according to historical data.
