  •  The second and main reason that the crypto market was bleeding is the power outage in the "Xinjiang" region of China, which caused a large part of the Bitcoin network to be cut off within 48 hours.

  • This interruption was due to maintenance supervised by the competent authorities after the massive floods that affected power stations in China.

  • It is known that bitcoin mining is a large part of it in China, as the Chinese province of Xinjiang is one of the regions in which a large part of Bitcoin miners are active.

With these conditions, the bitcoin price collapsed dramatically, which led to a further price correction.

Compared to Bitcoin's drop, the index has decreased significantly, which could mean a reliable buying opportunity.
 Besides Bitcoin, the cryptocurrency market overall has fallen by 13% and has lost more than $ 150 billion.

The "Wu Blockchain" account on Twitter explains that there was a big rush of buyers in the Chinese stock exchanges, but the situation turned after the "Xinjiang" incident and the news of Turkey banning payments in cryptocurrencies, and the sale of shares by CoinBase executives.

The market path turns from green to red and enters a continuous downward process until the publication of this article.
