Last Updated on May 3, 2021
Last week was very exciting for Bitcoin as it not only reached an all-time high but also collapsed soon after, depriving investors of a quiet weekend.

Bitcoin price loses around $ 15,000 in four days
The leading digital currency hit an all-time high around April 14 above $ 64,000, since then, it has been slightly corrected as it reached around $ 60,000 by late April 17th. The next day caused a shock to the cryptocurrency community as the currency collapsed to $ 51,476. , After that it recovered to $ 57,603 on Monday, April 19, but failed to resume its bullish momentum, retreating and currently trading above the $ 53,000 level.
The bitcoin price drop has dominated the headlines over the past several days, and the main reason for the drop appears to be Turkey’s decision to block cryptocurrency payments, according to reports last week, the country’s central bank decided to make crypto payments illegal starting April 30th.
The digital asset market has grown significantly in Turkey over the past months as Turkish investors joined a global rally in Bitcoin, seeking protection from the devaluation of the lira and inflation that reached 16% in March.
One analyst at JPMorgan believes that if Bitcoin does not cross the $ 60K level within the next few days, the momentum signals may weaken for several months, given its high level.
