As we noted over the weekend, these drops follow comments from Elon Musk that BTC and ETH prices may be a little high

While a specific catalyst for the move is unclear, CoinTelegraph points out that prior to the pullback, CryptoQuant found that large BTC deposits were transferred to Gemini, one of the leading U.S. cryptocurrency exchanges.

When whales deposit BTC into exchanges, it typically signals an intent to sell. Hence, it is likely that some whales took profit on their positions, causing the market to dip sharply in a short period.

However, whales selling large amounts of Bitcoin can cause a bigger correction than usual because it leads to cascading liquidations in the futures market.

Many overleveraged longs can get liquidated consecutively, amplifying the effect of the whale-induced sell-off. Data shows that over $1 billion worth of futures contracts were liquidated in the last 24 hours.

After the drop, traders are anticipating a gradual recovery. Scott Melker, a cryptocurrency trader and technical analyst, said that recent history indicates dips do not last long. He wrote: "I have no idea what happens here, but recent history shows that dips have not lasted long. Would love to see another slow float back up after this bit of selling. Of course we could drop, but each move like this of late has been a buying opportunity."
