Friday did not prove to be a good day for the cryptocurrency market. Bitcoin, the world’s most popular cryptocurrency, reached the $43 thousand mark on Thursday, but at that point investors rejected bitcoin. With a fall of about 3 thousand dollars, it came down to 40 thousand dollars. Similar is the case with most altcoins. Ethereum, the second popular cryptocurrency after bitcoin, is close to falling below $3 thousand, while BNB is stalled at $400.
