Cryptocurrency Price Today: Bitcoin Fails To Regain $40k Mark, MANTA Gains Nearly 30%

Bitcoin (BTC), the oldest and most valued cryptocurrency in the world, failed to rise above the $40,000 mark early Thursday, as its latest slump continues. Some investors were hopeful that Ethereum (ETH) might see some traction due to BlackRock’s spot ETH exchange-traded fund (ETF). However, its approval has now been delayed by the US Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC). This is largely expected to lead to a bearish trend for ETH. Other top coins — including the likes of Dogecoin (DOGE), Solana (SOL), Ripple (XRP), and Litecoin (LTC) — landed in the reds across the board. The AKT token, which was the biggest gainer yesterday, emerged to be the biggest loser today, with a 24-hour dip of over 7 percent. MANTA, on the other hand, became the biggest gainer, with a 24-hour jump of nealy 30 percent. 

The global crypto market cap stood at $1.56 trillion at the time of writing, registering a 24-hour gain of 1.01 percent.

What Crypto Exchanges Are Saying About Current Market Scenario

Mudrex co-founder and CEO Edul Patel told ABP Live, “Bitcoin remains below the critical threshold of $40,000, currently undergoing correction at $39,700 after a recent dip. The existing trading level could witness increased buying, given the support at $38,500. In case of a support breakdown, the next support level is expected at $37,800, while upward resistance is identified at $40,350.”

CoinSwitch Markets Desk noted, “BTC has started consolidating in a very narrow range of 39.5 k USD to 40.5 k USD following the recent dump below 40k USD. While this might indicate that bulls are not willing to step in at this price point, it might also be the case that taking Bitcoin’s price further down will not be easy for the bears as well. Given 38.5k USD is the last line of support before the next big support at 32k USD, some consolidation is expected here. While Grayscale’s GBTC sell pressure has seemingly slowed down, there has been another fear of a massive BTC unlock that might be coming in with the now-defunct Mt Gox exchange. Mt Gox has reportedly started verifying the BTC addresses of the 2014 hack victims and it seems likely that 200,000 BTC may soon enter into the market further adding up to the selling pressure.”

Rajagopal Menon, Vice President, WazirX, said, “This morning, the crypto market showed cautious gains as Bitcoin regained ground above $40,000. After dipping below $39,500 on Wednesday, down nearly 20% from its recent peak, BTC recovered, reaching as high as $40,166. Solana’s SOL and Avalanche’s AVAX outperformed, with approximately 8.5% and 11.5% gains, leading the broader market’s upward movement.”

Sathvik Vishwanath, CEO and co-founder of Unocoin, said, “Bitcoin is currently teetering at the crucial $40,000 mark, with a looming downward wedge pattern raising concerns about increased selling pressure. Resistance levels at $40,850, $41,381, and $43,394 could disrupt any potential downward trends, paving the way for a corrective rebound. Immediate support lies at $38,618, with further significant support at $37,638 and $36,745. The oversold Relative Strength Index (RSI) suggests a potential bullish correction, though it could be short-lived if the overarching bearish trend persists. Ethereum, trading near $2,250.1, faces resistance at $2,360.1, $2,426.7, and $2,475.3, while key support levels at $2,168.9, $2,105.5, and $2,026.9 may mitigate further drops. The bearish outlook is emphasized by the 50-day EMA crossing below at $2,415.7, but an oversold RSI near 26 hints at a possible corrective rally around the pivotal $2,250.1 level. Traders are closely monitoring these levels for potential market direction indicators.”

Shivam Thakral, CEO of BuyUcoin, said, “The overall crypto market cap jumped to the $1.55 trillion mark with BTC showing a marginal increase in its value from the previous day. Altcoins are showing a strong positive trajectory but it’s not enough to lift the market sentiment. The US Fed should start cutting the interest rates soon to boost market liquidity and spark economic activity across sectors.” 

CoinDCX Research Team told ABP Live, “In the last 24 hours, BTC has exhibited a slight recovery, holding above $40,000, yet it needs to clear and close above $40,800 for a bullish confirmation. ETH, however, closed in the red and maintains a bearish outlook. It is currently consolidating near the crucial support level at $2,175. A break of this level could potentially push ETH to $2,125 and $2,016. In related news, the SEC has delayed the approval of BlackRock’s spot Ethereum ETF, contributing to a somewhat bearish sentiment for ETH at the moment.”
