August can be crisis months for Bitcoin. This assumption is increasingly put forward by cryptocurrency market analysts. They explain this assumption by the fact that Bitcoin has almost exhausted its growth potential, and new catalysts are not expected in August.

These are the investors who have been waiting during the winter in the hope of selling a cryptocurrency either with minimal losses or with a small but profit. In the future, the market is waiting for a decline. The crypto industry still doesn’t inspire confidence: even Libra has so many difficulties. But this is a project of such a giant as Facebook.
