Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies recovered on Wednesday after a brutal sell-off, while the world’s largest digital coin returned above $ 30,000.

The price of bitcoin traded up $ 32,765 on Wednesday, according to Coin Metrics, about 8% more per day. The smaller cryptocurrency ether and XRP also recovered, by about 9% and 6%, respectively.

The crypto market recorded significant sales via bitcoin on Tuesday falls below the $ 30,000 limit for the first time since June 22nd.

The dive came amid news that the New Jersey Attorney General had issued a a letter of termination and renunciation BlockFi to lend cryptocurrencies, ordering it to stop offering interest-bearing accounts.

The reason for moving more on Wednesday was not immediately clear. Cryptocurrencies often suffer from severe price changes. For example, Bitcoin climbed to a high of nearly $ 65,000 in April before halving in value in the months that followed.

‘Dead cat bouncing’

Vijay Ayyar, head of the Asia-Pacific cryptocurrency exchange Luno, said Wednesday’s price change was likely a “dead cat bouncing”, where assets are briefly recovering from a protracted decline before continuing to slide.

If bitcoin cannot rise above $ 32,000 to $ 33,000, Ayyar expects more downsides, with the largest cryptocurrency potentially collapsing from $ 24,000 to $ 25,000.

“And last night we saw wide market gatherings, and I think crypto is just toying with that,” Ayyar told CNBC.

“In general, there are a lot of macro factors at the moment that weigh risky assets – inflation is worrying, Covid, and with the crypto we have more specific concerns like much more regulatory oversight.”
