Bitcoin faced huge ups and downs at the $30k boundary. Recently Fed rate hike and the collapse of the Terra Ecosystem resulted in a very high panic and in that situation Bitcoin’s strong buy support at $30k faced correction many times. Even at the time of writing this article, the price of Bitcoin is $29,173 and this price is 2.81% down from the last 24 hours’ trade price.
