Crypto Market sheds $300Billion as Bitcoin and Ethereum are down by double digits

The last seven days have been quite challenging for the mainstream cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum and Bitcoin. Bitcoin is nearly down by 12% in the past seven days during the time of writing. This has eventually led to the dragging of the combined market cap of all the cryptocurrencies by $300 billion. 

The crypto bulls would most likely forget this week as all the major cryptocurrencies suffered heavy losses and the total market cap also came down by a huge percentage. Bitcoin failed to live up to the expectations of another price rally. However, crypto bulls are not completely disappointed as they consider it a good chance to enter the market. One of the reasons behind this rally is US president Joe Biden’s signing a $1.2trillion infrastructure bill on Monday.
