Jared Madfes, partner at venture capital firm Tribe Capital, was quoted as saying,

It’s very easy to be fearful right now, not only in crypto but generally in the world. [It reflects] people’s inherent fear in the market.

Kevin O’Leary waiting for a panic event in crypto

In an interview last week, Shark Tank’s Kevin O’Leary shared his views on Bitcoin and crypto. As analysts have predicted, O’Leary was asked whether the Bitcoin price could plummet to $13,000.

Mr.Wonderful said,

It’s impossible to know where the bottom is. I don’t believe we’ve seen the bottom yet and I have a different view of it. I go back again to other asset classes that I have invested in for decades. In every case [...] bottoms are reached with an event, a panic event as I call it, and you can find it in every asset class.

The Shark Tank star argues that the Bitcoin market cap has been cut in half, and this would make investors think we are on our way to the bottom. However, what he is looking for is a big panic event. This event would be characterized by capitulation, massive volume and total panic, which would result into a buying opportunity for the crypto community.

Analysts believe Bitcoin price trend remains bearish

@PostyXBT, a crypto analyst, evaluated the Bitcoin price trend and noted that nothing has changed in the weekly chart. Bulls have a lot of work to do, and the overall Bitcoin price trend is bearish. The 200-week moving average is still resistance for Bitcoin price.
