The cryptocurrency market faced a new wave of selling pressure on May 28 as the price of Bitcoin (BTC) fell to $ 35,100 and traders in general appear disinterested in buying the slump before the weekend.
Despite the downward movements seen in the market over the past two weeks, institutional investors have for the most part held on to their determination to continue subscribing to cryptocurrencies, but the lack of “we bought the dip” announcements makes retailers wonder, whether bitcoin price is for other downsides.
While some analysts see the possibility of Bitcoin falling as low as $ 20,000 as a worst-case scenario, overall BTC price action remains on the upside, with the weekly trend towards higher lows still intact.

Altcoins also fell sharply on Friday as market uncertainty led to low volume ahead of Memorial Day weekend and the current risk averse environment mitigated the impact of major announcements like Polygon (MATIC), which integrates its datasets with Google Cloud technology.
