Selling pressure escalated and BTC lost its long-term support mark of $28,000 due to this. Currently, the coin has broken below the $25,000 price mark, and BTC has not traded below that level since December 2020.

Terra’s crash along with other scams across the broader crypto industry has continued to cause a crash across the industry. With BTC constantly capitulating to the bears, it is only a matter of time until it touches the next critical price support level.
