Bitcoin rebounded as much as 15% on Monday to trade around $38,683 per silver after a fiendish sell-off over the weekend. The cryptocurrency slipped 18% to $33,674 at intraday lows on Sunday.

The crypto space has faced a tough few weeks of risk-off sentiment make the total industry market cap to fall over the weekend to $1.57 trillion from record highs of $2.56 trillion on May 12, according to data from CoinMarketCap.com.

Mark Cuban called the sell-off the "Great Unwind" in a tweet on Sunday, reasoning crypto traders were was necessary to unwind their leveraged commerces amid descending tolls in the space.

"Traders borrow to buy Eth, exercised eth to borrow alt/ stable copper, employed that to LP a high APY Pair, took the SLPs and staked them to maxout crop. The time Eth descends to their Tragic Number, they had to Unwind. Unstake, Remove Liqudity, Repay, " Cuban wrote.

Some bitcoin professionals feel the recent downturn may be over, however. Pankaj Balani, the CEO of Delta Exchange, a crypto derivatives exchange, told Insider that he guesses "most of the leverage is out of the system now and bitcoin should start to form a cornerstone here."

Krugman was roundly taunted by the crypto parish for his comments, with bitcoiners noted the economist had previously said the fax machine was going to have as much impact on the economy as the internet.

"By 2005 or so, it will become clear that the Internet's impact on their own economies has been no greater than fax machines machine's, " Krugman wrote in a 1998 Red Herring article.

In other bearish word, JP Morgan psychoanalysts said during a note to patients on Monday that it was "too early to call the end of the recent bitcoin downtrend."

The JPMorgan team said there is "a significant risk of further de-risking given continued crumble in our lookback date impetu signal and given the absence of buying in either the bitcoin fund space or the adjusted bitcoin futures space."

Despite the coming expenditure of crypto resources, over the weekend bitcoiners celebrated Bitcoin Pizza Day.

The holiday pays homage to Laszlo Hanyecz, who paid for two pizzas consuming 10,000 bitcoins in the first-ever transaction using the money 11 years ago.

At the time the 10,000 bitcoins were worth approximately $41 , now they are worth more than $ 3.8 billion.
