A new bear market has seen billions of dollars disappear from crypto markets in 24 hours.
Cryptocurrency investors are reeling today as markets lose $10 bln of value in 24 hours in a new slide.
Data from Coinmarketcap at press time Tuesday shows Bitcoin down almost 10 percent at under $2,300, while Ethereum (ETH) slid below $200 for the first time since May.
Across the top ten assets, losses extended to levels rarely seen in the past few months, with prices still dropping.
Current losses for altcoins represent around 20 percent, with Ripple and IOTA falling closer to 30 percent.

Ironically for Ethereum investors, the weekend saw a collection of major bagholders explain to Vice why they had not cashed out their coins and believed in the asset’s strong future. At the time, ETH was worth 25 percent more.
