The crypto market is crashing yet again after a week full of fluctuations. Last week, the market started on a ‘green’ note and the subsequent crypto crash sessions almost wiped off any profit made during that period. Even the first and largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin (BTC), couldn’t survive that bearish trend. In addition, several other cryptos barring a few tumbled largely. Except for the U.S. dollar-backed digital currencies like Tether (USDT), USD Coin (USDC), and Binance USD (BUSD), it was pretty difficult to ascertain any ‘green’ performances.

The ‘red’ trend has made several people question “why is crypto crashing today” but the answer to it is still uncertain. This is because, for a long time, these bearish trends have been attributed to U.S. inflation pressures, interest hikes, and the Russia-Ukraine War (in the early months of 2022). However, currently, the persistent crypto crash sessions do not have an identified source but might have been induced by several crypto lenders’ distraught that went bankrupt overnight, the most recent being Celsius.
