Suffering the effect of the current bloodbath in the crypto market, Bitcoin’s (BTC) price on May 12 hit its lowest valuation of $26,350 since December 2020. The ongoing bearish trend has remarkable similarity with the previous mid-season bearish trend that lasted from May to June 2021.
In both market crashes, Bitcoin’s price broke the resistance level of $30,000. Recently, it had dropped more than it reversed back in June 2021 when the BTC’s valuation stopped losing at $29,800. In contrast, its price in the current market clash has touched the $26,3000 level.

Several macroeconomic factors impacted the crypto market in both instances. For example, before 2021’s bearish trend, Chinese banks prevented using crypto by disallowing crypto services for the state’s financial sector. Then Elon Musk added fuel to the fire by reversing his decision to include Bitcoin for Tesla payments. Similarly, the distortion of COVID-19 caused some major countries to step back from the blockchain industry; thereby, the BTC price plummeted dramatically.
Likewise, in the most recent downtrend, geopolitical conditions and macroeconomic facts have decided the fate of Bitcoin. First, the Russia-Ukraine conflict immensely affected the crypto price, with regulators imposing strict rules day by day at a time when Bitcoin is starting to grow worldwide. Then legal ambiguity and Fed regulation of digital assets further plunged back Bitcoin price.
