Bitcoin market witnessed large sell-off taking place within an hour on 2 August. This selling pressure caused the price of BTC to dip from $12,100 to $10,559. However, the asset immediately bounced back in the following hours and was valued at $11,148 at press time. Traders have been taking advantage of this bullish market.
