In the month of June, the overall cryptocurrency market reached a high of $1.776T and a low of $1.165T, a decline of 52.5%. USD Coin (USDC, $1.00, 30d gain of 0.02%) was the best performer for the month among the top 10 coins by market cap.
The month was largely characterised by negative sentiment in the market. The biggest contributor to the market's collapse was the widespread hunt for cryptocurrency mining and trading in various countries, including China and Iran, as reported by CoinIdol, a world blockchain news outlet.
Increasing negative comments against Bitcoin and cryptocurrency payments, particularly from Jerome Powell, the head of BIS (Bank of International Settlements) and former U.S. President Donald Trump, also played a big role in bringing the market to its knees. Trump called bitcoin a scam and Chairman Jerome said cryptocurrency is not a good store of value and that virtual coins are not suitable for payments.
