Market jitters push Bitcoin down

Jitters around Mt.Gox repayments saw Bitcoin dipping below $60,000 on Monday before rebounding above the psychological level early Tuesday.

BTC however continues to struggle as market dominance falls amid sell-off pressure – including from a German government linked wallet.

According to Lookonchain, the German government’s wallet has transferred another 900 BTC worth over $54.7 million today. Data the on-chain analysis and insights platform shared via X shows 400 of the wallet’s transfers, worth $24.3 million, has been to crypto exchanges Kraken and Coinbase.

The German Government’s wallets have transferred 900 $BTC($54.75M) out in the past 2 hours, of which 400 $BTC($24.33M) was transferred to #Kraken and #Coinbase.

German Government currently holds 46,359 $BTC($2.83B).

While market analysts say Mt. Gox’ repayments of over $8.5 billion are unlikely to put crypto prices under sustained pressure, the immediate outlook has some BTC holders selling.

Also, analysts anticipate selling pressure to persist given the German government currently holds over 46,000 BTC worth more than $2.83 billion.

AAVE spikes as bulls eye breakout

As Bitcoin remains near the key price level, altcoins that fell alongside BTC on Monday are showing signs of upward action.

Today, notable rebounders include Solana, Toncoin and Injective. The market has also seen meme coins dogwifhat, Pepe and Floki as well as AI tokens FET, AGIX and OCEAN, show signs of a fresh resurgence.

Aave’s price gain comes amid the broader bounce for altcoins. However, the DeFi token currently tops the gainers list among major altcoins in the top 100, with double digit gains of +16% pushing its price toward the key $100 level.
