BTC’s price came under pressure sometime after 9.34 am on August 26 and was trading with losses for the entire day. However, around 6.08 pm, a failed attempt was made to lift up the price of BTC and for a brief moment, the price was in the green zone.

Like BTC, ETH too came under heavy selling pressure sometime around 9.39 am on August 26 and its price never recovered.
