The move comes just a few days after analyst Willy Woo predicted that its total capitalization would not fall back below these levels again. “$1T is already strongly supported by investors. I’d say there’s a fair chance we’ll never see Bitcoin below $1T again.” The BTC market cap first surpassed a trillion dollars on Feb. 19 but did not remain there long, falling back below it after just four days. The second time it topped ten figures was on March 9, and it remained above the milestone level until today’s slump.
The total market capitalization for the entire crypto ecosystem is currently $1.65 trillion according to CoinGecko. It has fallen by 9.8%, or $180 billion since Monday, March 22. Profit taking could be a big factor in this pullback, as suggested by analyst Josh Rager who stated that unrealized profits are not realized until they are in the bank. In reference to MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor whose firm has been buying a lot of Bitcoin this year, he added: “Don’t try to act like Saylor won’t take profits eventually, cause he will along with every other fund on the planet. Then they’ll buy back lower”
