The crypto market lost 1.2% over the past 24 hours to $1.156 trillion. This is a downward move, albeit small, after a long consolidation. Larger currencies have seen less pressure than smaller altcoins. Rising US Treasury yields put pressure on riskier assets and attracted some capital.

Bitcoin approached $29.0K after a prolonged consolidation of around $29.4K. Technically, the sell-off in Bitcoin could gain momentum on a break below $28.9K. In this case, the price could quickly fall to $28.0K or even $27.2K.
