Bitcoin drops below $36,000 as cryptocurrencies drop once again

Emerging markets — where currencies are often linked closely to commodity price cyclicality — could ultimately spur outperformance in bitcoin, she said. The latest price falls comes a day after longtime bitcoin bull Cathie Wood, founder and CEO of Ark Investment Management, argued that bitcoin has a place in the world of deflation. “I think what will happen as their currencies come under pressure, the velocity of their money will increase as more and more of their populations shift into bitcoin, and other cryptocurrencies and assets,” Wood said at CoinDesk’s Consensus 2021 conference on Thursday.

It briefly climbed back above $40,000 on Wednesday before losing some of those gains. Bitcoin, the world’s most popular cryptocurrency has been trying to recover after a week of turmoil that saw its price tumble 30% to around $30,000 last week.

Cryptocurrencies continue to divide opinion. In a 41-page note last week, Goldman analysts shared their views on whether the likes of bitcoin and ethereum should be considered an asset class or not. Elsewhere, ethereum’s price fell 9.3% to $2,501.16 a coin, while dogecoin’s price fell 4% to 32 cents.

Elsewhere, hedge fund billionaire Ray Dalio revealed in an article published on Monday that he owns some bitcoin.

Last week’s crypto sell-off came after authorities in China and the U.S. moved to tighten regulation and tax compliance on cryptocurrencies. Chinese authorities called for tighter regulation on crypto mining and trading, reinforcing rules announced in 2017, and the U.S. Treasury announced that it would require stricter crypto compliance with the IRS.
