Here’s What Triggered Bitcoin’s Painful Plunge, According to Galaxy Digital’s Mike Novogratz
Billionaire Mike Novogratz believes Bitcoin’s big price drop this week is no surprise.
The value of the top coin plunged by 17% to $43,050 on Tuesday, its lowest price in nearly a month.
In a new interview with Bloomberg TV, the CEO of digital asset firm Galaxy Digital says BTC became overbought as a series of fundamental factors and positive news stories triggered hype among investors.

I think in the last eight weeks, there has been a giant realization that crypto’s not just Bitcoin being bought as a hedge against bad monetary and fiscal policy, but maybe more importantly, it’s web 3.0. It’s the internet of value transfer…

This is the next internet.”
Novogratz says that while it is difficult to predict the short-term movement of the crypto market, it is easy to see its long-term trajectory.

There are enough institutions that have said they believe in this as a store of value.”
