Bitcoin Fails to Break $11,000 Again, Drops $400 in One Hour

Bitcoin was well on its way to the $11,000 price mark, hitting an intraday high of $10,895 when it lost $400 in less than an hour of trading. At press time the world’s most popular cryptocurrency is trading at $10,350, down 2.12% on the day.[i]Bitcoin’s 24-hour price chart. Source: Coin360[/i]

The upward momentum seen in the 12% seven-day gains excited analysts, however, bullish  sentiments could be short-lived now that Bitcoin has yet again failed to break the $11,000 mark.
Cointelegraph reported earlier that Filb Filb, a popular Bitcoin trader, had pointed to the launch of institutional trading platform Bakkt later in September as a deciding moment for Bitcoin. “Bitcoin continues to consolidate above $10k,” he stated, adding:
Quote:“A lot of people are hoping to get bids filled below $9k; the market rarely gets what it wants and I wouldn’t be surprised if they are forced to buy higher. But let’s see what happens with the launch of Bakkt.”
The number one altcoin Ether (ETH) is also taking a sharp nosedive and is currently trading at $169 per coin, down 2.44% on the day.

Ripple’s XRP token, which has been trading completely flat for the better part of the week, is in the midst of a downward price trend showing a loss of around 1.97% on the day. At press time, the world’s third-most popular coin is trading at $0.25.

Mostly losers among the top-20 coins
The worst-performing top 20 altcoins are IOTA (MIOTA) down 4.41%, TRON (TRX) down 5% and Algorand (ALGO), which is seeing a whopping 17.73% loss over the 24-hour period at press time.
On Sept. 1, well-known crypto analyst Josh Rager took a shot at Tron founder Justin Sun and accused him of buying 5,000 to 6,000 Twitter followers a day.
Only three out of top-20 coins by market cap are seeing minor gains at press time, with Bitcoin SV (BSV) showing negligible gains of 0.22% on the day.
The overall crypto market capitalization is $262 billion as of press time, with Bitcoin’s share accounting for 70.9% of the total.
