Pro Bitcoin; MicroStrategy, Coinbase, & BTC Miner Stocks Dip!

United States crypto-related stocks registered losses in pre-market trading on Friday. The crash follows Bitcoin market losses, which have the prominent crypto trading at four-month lows.

Earlier today, the Bitcoin price fell 9% to trade below $54,000 in the $53,000 zone. The market has recovered slightly but has left behind a fearful sentiment and widespread market sell-offs.

According to CoinGecko, Bitcoin (BTC) currently trades at $55,385.76. This is a 0.3% increase within the last hour. Michael Saylor’s MicroStrategy Inc. (MSTR), which owns 226,331 Bitcoins as of June 24, 2024, has suffered the most as BTC tanks.
