The BTC/USD pair has declined sharply as investors worry about the cryptocurrencies industry . There have been important news from the sector. For example, in June, Celsius, a leading cryptocurrency bank announced that it was suspending deposits and withdrawals. The company attributed this situation to the significant pullback of all cryptocurrencies.
Last week, Three Arrows Capital announced that it was filing for bankruptcy. This happened as the company faced significant margin calls from leading exchanges. As a result, this made it the biggest crypto-focused hedge fund to go under. The company lost most of its money when Terra and its ecosystem crashed.
Meanwhile, in a statement, Voyager Digital, a major cryptocurrency exchange, announced that it was suspending withdrawals and deposits. The company is now raising capital to save its business.
Another major news was that BlockFi, once valued at over $4 billion was being acquired by FTX for about $25 million. Without the bailout, the company would have probably gone bankrupt.
