Possibilities of Bitcoin Price Falling to $15K and Ethereum to $1K

Bitcoin and Ethereum prices fall to $15K and $1K is not outside the realm of possibility. Worsening macro amid rising inflation indicates a move near the numbers again despite jobless claims showing signs of a slowdown in the labor market.

In March, selloff by miners is putting extra pressure on Bitcoin. As per the on-chain data, if miner pressure continues to increase amid other factors, BTC price could fall to $19K or $16.6K. It is because there’s a volume gap between these levels. Thus, if prices fall below $19K it will trigger another selloff as the next local bottom is near $16.6K.

On the other hand, Ethereum needs to hold the $1,400 level. If the ETH price amid the bearish sentiment falls below this level, the next major support level is at $1,250. Investors need to watch the Ethereum Shanghai upgrade to decide their next action as ETH unlock may cause a selloff.
