Following the news that Binance has suspended trading, the price of the flagship cryptocurrency corrected towards $22,500 after colliding with resistance near the $24,000 level.

The fall was accompanied by a significant decrease in trading volume. Shortly before the correction, digital gold once again renewed its all-time high.

According to journalist Joseph Young, arrays of sell orders formed at $24,200 and $ 24,500.

However, some users have expressed the hope that the so-called “altcoin season” will soon begin.
