Elon Musk created even more trouble after ‘reversing’ his decision to use Bitcoin for Tesla payments. These factors, combined with the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic in major economies, caused BTC prices to plummet.

The current collapse is also the result of greater macroeconomic and geopolitical headwinds. The Russian invasion of Ukraine and regulatory issues during a period of global inflation have plunged the cryptocurrency market into chaos. The price of Bitcoin is further pushed down by Fed regulations and legal ambiguity on crypto assets in major economies.
