Before this news hit the limelight, Bitcoin price was trading at USD 68,000 before falling to USD 62,000. This means a huge loss of around USD 6,000 in a few hours. Ethereum, on the other hand, saw its price drop by 10% and is now trading at USD 2,892.97.

Binance Coin (BNB), Solana (SOL), and other tokens experienced double-digit price drops in a few hours. Overall, the broader crypto market fell more than 8% with the combined crypto market capitalization hitting a low of USD 2.38 trillion. Given that traditional financial markets are closed on Saturday, it is uncertain how the attack on Israel will impact mainstream assets.

On the one hand, it is strongly believed that Bitcoin's price decline was driven by several factors other than the drone launch in Israel. There are option expirations in the market, bearish Bitcoin halving patterns, macroeconomic factors, and even technical chart weakness. While this explains Bitcoin's price slump, the impact has triggered a bearish streak that forced altcoin prices to plummet.

Due to the geopolitical chaos, the Israeli military said drones from Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) would take time to reach Israel.
