The novel COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues with its adverse effects on the financial markets. The cryptocurrency space is no exception. Bitcoin, for instance, slipped below the significant $5,000 mark and is currently trading at around $4,500.

Just hours ago, the leading cryptocurrency by market cap saw a spike of $800. When the U.S. Fed Reserve made a total injection of $700 billion in treasuries and mortgage-back securities, Bitcoin jumped to almost $6,000. The bullish move, however, was short-lived, and just a few hours later, BTC finds itself even lower than before.

Since it broke down the $5,000 support level, the largest cryptocurrency has dropped down to $4,500.

Most of the altcoins are in even worse shape than Bitcoin. Ethereum is 17% down and is trading at $105. Ripple (-14%) is below $0.14, Litecoin drops with 16% to $30, and Binance Coin plunges with over 17% to $8.8.

Tezos and Chainlink are both plummeting by over 16% and are the most notable losers in the top 20 coins by market cap. Thus, XTZ is at $1,22 now, while LINK is $1.63.

The traditional financial markets are in a similar situation as well. The Stoxx Europe 600 futures index is down 7.7% and the U.K. FTSE futures 100 Index fell by approximately 5,6%. The U.S. measures that also included cutting interest rates had a positive effect only on treasuries, but equities continue to tumble. The S&P 500 futures are down by almost 5%, and while the spot markets haven’t opened for trading yet, the situation doesn’t look good.
