Hey BAT toddlers! Welcome to the Daily BAT Discussion!
**Yesterday's Market Movements - Down/Sideways**
Hey guys, sorry been out for a couple days on break! The crypto market has still been volatile as ever. Bitcoin has been going up and down between $6000 and $7000 for the past week, but generally more down than up. We've seen some [Bart action (not-accurate-price example)](https://steemitimages.com/DQme9Wky94CRdiqyN7LE1XtKw2V5KvHhPXfUfa9SNRGBLuD/image.png) going on more frequently, so the market still feels like a wild stallion trying to calm down. Meanwhile, BAT's been on a [downtrend](https://i.imgur.com/VWy15pD.png) the past couple weeks. Yesterday actually hit quite a devastating low of around 3175 sats, but bounced back up to 3400 [satoshis](https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Satoshi_(unit\)) at the time of this post ($0.21). While many coins are nearing their historical all-time lows, at least BAT is holding out at around 39th spot in top 100 coins by marketcap. Zooming out, BAT still seems to be in a very [steady upward trend](https://i.imgur.com/Oacwnhq.png), though currently at the lower part of the channel.
Have a great rest of the weekend everyone! And remember, invest responsibly!!
