Bitcoin Price in June 2022: The Most Turbulent Month for Crypto in a Decade

The cryptocurrency had never witnessed the crash disaster that happened in June 2022. All investors recorded high losses with most of them resorting to panic sell.

The crash of Terra LUNA may be a contributing factor to the Bitcoin crash. But the high inflation and announcement by the Federal Reserves to increase the interest compounded the sell-off in the crypto market.

The most capitalized crypto, BTC dipped over 37 per cent in June – it’s the largest monthly price drop in 11 years. As the price dropped, it triggered more sell-off among short and long-term Bitcoin holders.

For instance, BTC price historical data in June 2022 on CoinMarketCap shows that Bitcoin ushered in the new month at $31,792.55 and by the second day, it dropped below $30K.

While it bounced back to $30k on June 3, it struggled to maintain $30K tag and on June 12 – a significant political history in Nigeria celebrated as Democracy Day – it fell to $26,762.65.

Since then, the fall continued through the month, closing at $22,487.39 on June 13. It recorded its lowest price on June 18, 2022, at $17,708.62, pulling down the market cap to $362,685,324,229.

The volatility continued but managed to close the month at $19,784.73 as against May price historical data that ended at $31,792.31.
