The April US non-farm employment data released on Friday was 185 thousand above the expectations, while the unemployment rate decreased by 3.4% while the expectations were higher.

After stopping the withdrawal requests twice in a short time with intense withdrawal demands, the stock market, which created an atmosphere of panic among investors, returned to its normal course with the statements that there were signs of a bull market. However, this did not prevent the selling pressure on Bitcoin. Although the investors in the market are willing to buy, FUD news has caused selling pressure in cryptos.
