Current Crypto Market Instability Might Cause HIVE to Lose its $0.084 Support Zone
Further looking at the price action of Bitcoin, we realize that the King of Crypto has lost the $7,000 support area and is battling to take control of $6,900 as its new support. With the Bitcoin halving only a month away, doubts linger as to whether BTC will live up to expectations and erase all losses from last month’s Coronavirus crash. In a twist of events and to add uncertainty about the future, John McAfee recently referred to Bitcoin as being worthless.
Additionally, BTC looks set to take down the entire crypto markets including HIVE. The latter experienced a new low of $0.084 on the 6th of April and this level has acted as adequate support for the past week. However, if the price of Bitcoin keeps falling in the coming days and weeks, the valuable HIVE support at $0.084 will be lost. The new coin will be in uncharted territory as it has only traded for close to 3 weeks in the crypto markets.
