The crypto market has been under moderate but persistent pressure throughout Wednesday, losing 1.26% over the past 24 hours to $2.24 trillion. Prices of top coins are down, except for Toncoin, which adds 1.6% for the day and 19% for 30 days, and Tron (+0.4% for the day and +10% for 30 days).

Bitcoin is trading near $60.7K, having clawed back nearly half of the rebound from Monday’s lows. After the market met the long-overdue demand for spot ETFs, selling factors by miners and long-term holders began to have a noticeable impact on quotes. Also important for Bitcoin is the sentiment in global markets, where the neutral tone is replaced by neat pressure, which is also negative for the price of the first cryptocurrency.

The XRP price went back to $0.4640, the area of this month’s lows and a support level for the last twelve months. Sellers have been pushing quotes for the past five weeks. Earlier this year, the price broke key long-term support levels in the form of a trendline through the 2022 and 2023 lows and the 200 and 50-week averages. Without overall positivity in the crypto market, it could be a matter of days before the sell-off accelerates sharply.
