The question of what caused the collapse of the market and what should do those who still have cryptocurrency  – makes world crazy. That is why, The Coin Shark have found answers for all of these questions and analysed per minute history of the fall of currency of Bitcoin.

The Chronology of the fall from 14th to 16th November

Wednesday, November,14 , Bitcoin break another 2018 bottom.  According to data of CoinMarketCap, at 11:34 UTC the rate of the first cryptocurrency behaved stably, being at $6 365.

Nothing foretold troubles, but at 17:19 UTC began unexpected fall, which last till the 19:19 UTC, where the price of BTC remained in half-dead condition at $5 765. Therefore, the capitalisation of the marked fell to $102 billion.

After that, Bitcoin started to resist. In 20:04 UTC the currency show vital signs, increased to $5 858. But still, the end of 14th November was not a happy ending. In 22:48 UTC was settled a new record – $5 568.

What caused the collapse?

Just think about it, less than 24 hours ago, it was possible to sell the BTC on a thousand dollar higher. Probably, it is impossible to define why “the foundation was cracked” under the cryptocurrency, as for the example it can be done in a regular market. In the digital, the effect is first  seen and only than the reason becomes known.

Reason #1: Contagious effect

On the basis of past, the cause of the fall have psychological nature.
For example, people are massively starting to buy cryptocurrencies or fanatically selling.

Reason #2 : Direct correlation

Each financial currency  pegged to its government, as for the example dollar – to the US economy. Cryptocurrency pegged with the people, which are both buying or selling it.

Reason #3: Global Bitcoin influence

Ironically, but there is a theory, that the general condition of the cryptocurrency is affected by Bitcoin. The value of all digital market is estimated in $182 billion, the $90 billion of which belongs to BTC. The majority of cryptocurrencies  should be transferred especially in Bitcoin, before the sale.
And now imagine, that selling of Bitcoin will start simultaneously several major players of the market. After this, the BTC prices are lowering, and this cause  the panic attacks more than ones: “ Buy everything and as quickly as possible, while the price is low!” – this makes the course to grow.

What should do the owners of cryptocurrency: sell or wait?

It depends on the inner aspects of each owner. Even when the course is rising – it still have cycles of fall.

Who and how will affect the collapse of rate?  

Cryptocurrency is the unstable tool. It’s system decentralised and doesn’t have the management center. Digital currency should strengthen the positions, so it can give the accurate forecast for the future. But, it appeared, that this fall will have no affect on ordinary users.

There is no denying, that in a consequence many crypto-business will close. Cryptocurrency exchange are in the minimum risk area, as in such cases the number of transaction increases.

Most of all, miners and the owners of the mining field will suffer the most. Since, the profitability depends on the price of extracted cryptocurrency. Within recent events, it is clear that mining is unprofitable occupation.
