The crypto market regained bullish momentum at the start of this year as numerous cryptocurrencies were seen in the green. Cryptocurrencies rose considerably over the days, making it seem that the market survived the crypto winter. However, the situation has changed, considering how the market has experienced its first drop this year. Cryptocurrencies have lost a significant percentage of their values and are trading much below today.
According to several crypto analysts, the decline in trading prices can be associated with the latest development. It would now be mandatory for banks to impose tighter rules surrounding cryptocurrencies. The new implementation follows the Basel III accord that requires banks to hold more capital to bear market shocks.
