BTC Price Bounces Above $ 44,000
The Bitcoin price had slipped to a low of $ 40,555 last week as panic reigned in the market because of renewed action against bitcoin and crypto trading in China. The price of BTC threatened to drop below $ 40,000, but after a weekend of bullish strength, the crypto is back above $ 44,000 as buyers aim for further gains this week.
The Bitcoin price recovery comes as some major crypto stocks have slumped due to the Chinese crackdown. Shares in Huobi Tech and OKG Technology Holdings fell 30% and 20%, respectively, early Monday, according to Reuters.
While crypto-related stocks fluctuated, BTC recorded an uptrend.
