Bitcoin (BTC) is falling to the bottom of a crucial barrier, but many altcoins fell a lot harder last night. In fact, many cryptocurrencies lost 30% or more of their value in April, which has historically been a green month for the market. The total market cap of all crypto stands at $1.80 trillion today, down from 2.8% today and as much as 18% this month.
