Bitcoin has finally made a major volatile move everyone has been talking about for weeks. The BTC price has just plunged to $7,500, which puts the bears in charge once again.

The cryptocurrency market is being clobbered after the top coin plunged to its lowest point in five months. Obviously, all top cryptocurrencies are currently in the red with Bitcoin SV (BSV) tanking by more than 11.66 percent.

However, it's not over for the bulls just yet. The top coin is currently sitting at iron-clad support at $7,500. If BTC breaks below this level, it could soon touch $6,000.  

Notably, Bitcoin experienced a massive drop just on the verge of the Zuckerberg hearing that is going to be pivotal for the crypto industry. There is a good chance that the carnage has only started. 

Cryptocurrency trader Josh Rager jokingly says that the famous 4chan prediction, which was covered by U.Today back in April, actually meant that the Bitcoin price would actually settle at $6,000 in October instead of printing the much-coveted $16,000 price tag.              

Meanwhile, Dutch crypto analyst Plan B looks beyond daily price moves, focusing on the top coin's fundamentals instead. 

As Bitcoin volatility continues to increase, there is a good chance that the industry will not see a Bitcoin ETF anytime soon.
