It was a bad weekend for cryptocurrency traders around the world. Almost all major cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin fell sharply, while all major cryptocurrencies fell over the weekend some are expected to rebound in the long term.

One of the reasons that Bitcoin’s value fell further was a cryptic response to a tweet from Tesla founder Elon Musk and also the fact that the US cryptocurrency exchange Binance is facing an investigation to facilitate illegal Bitcoin transactions.

Another popular cryptocurrency, Ethereum (ETH), also fell over the weekend. However, Ethereum traders remain bullish for the long term despite the fall.

Andrew Moss, managing director of GSR Capital, told Forbes that there has been a relentless cash offer on ETH for several weeks, but that open interest has only recently started to follow the rise in prices, which means there are less overleveraged positions, compared to what you would expect after such a strong rally.

Moss added that “the momentum is similar to the price action” seen in December and January for Bitcoin.
