The past seven days were a mixed bag for the crypto market. In the beginning, BTC, ETH, and many altcoins lost their important support levels and fell to yearly lows. However, by the end of the week, BTC and most of the major tokens managed to reclaim their support levels which was an important sign for bullish and bearish investors alike. Nonetheless, there were other significant happenings on the market—read on to discover the most vital news of last week.
As mentioned before, the market was slightly down during the past week, albeit with an important recovery by the end of it.
Bitcoin (BTC), for instance, dipped below its historic $20,000 support level, and went as low as $17,795 for a short time.
