According to Matthew Newton, an analyst at eToro, it’s not entirely uncommon for prices to dip around the futures settlement date. Compounding the price drops is a current lack of volume in the cryptocurrency markets.
“There’s no real spark in the market right now to get it moving, it’s just more sellers than buyers,” said Newton. “It needs something to get markets back to life, like some development on the technology or regulatory side.”
