After an extended period of range-bound movement between $8,000 and $8,300, Bitcoin experienced a massive crash. In a matter of few minutes, Bitcoin lost more than $500.

Early today, Bitcoin briefly dipped below $8,000. However, a few hours later, the bulls were unable to hold on to that support, and there was a swift dump where bears gained complete control. The asset reached a low of $7,400, with $600 lost in just one hour.

Are the Bears Finally Here?

The reason behind Bitcoin’s sudden fall is not clear yet. However, analysts have been calling it for a while now. After the cryptocurrency failed to move past $12,300 in August, multiple investors predicted a 50% retracement before the next bull run.

Bitcoin whales were recently seen moving large amounts of Bitcoin into exchanges, as BeInCrypto has previously reported. Just last week, an unknown whale moved $12 Million worth of Bitcoin to two exchanges, indicating a dump.

With the crash, Bitcoin’s trendline has also been broken, and it seems highly likely that the next stop is only at $7,000. The next few days could prove to be very tough for Bitcoin investors.

Investors Lose Big

While there were clear signs of a dump, a lot of investors did not see it coming. More than $205 Million was liquidated on BitMEX in just one hour. Furthermore, $181 Million of that was in just a 6-minute interval. Bitcoin crashed too fast, giving no time for investors to act.

Possible Manipulation?

Data suggests that the dump originated from Bitstamp. A massive sale of 3,600 BTC on the exchange triggered every bid from $7,800 to $6,200 to be wiped out. It could’ve been the result of an algorithm trade gone wrong. However, people who have thousands of BTC are cautious with their trades, and it could very well be an intentional effort to liquidate BitMEX traders.
