The crypto market continued to bleed in the early hours of Wednesday. Among the significant cryptos, Bitcoin Cash was the only coin which was somewhat profitable. Let’s take a closer look at how the top three did and then reveal the biggest winners and losers of the day, among the top 20 coins.

Top three coins

  • Bitcoin: BTC/USD has fallen from $10,878 to $10,630 in the early hours of Wednesday. This follows a heavily bearish Tuesday where the price fell from $11,400 to $10,878. The bulls must go back into the $11,000 zone to prevent further fall.
