The largest cryptocurrency is experiencing it’s worst performing month with an average return falling to -7%, However, experts believe that a high volatility will explode the largest crypto asset above this worst performing scenario. By the time of writing, the asset is trading at $10,410 a sign showing that the bulls are buckling up after being snubbed off since the beginning of this month.
