Bitcoin Sheds More Than Half its Value as Regulatory Pressures Intensify

Bitcoin Sheds More Than Half its Value as Regulatory Pressures Intensify

Dylan Jusino,

Yesterday, we reported that trader sentiment suggested that the Bitcoin slump could continue. Now, Bitcoin has just dipped below 10k for the first time since early December. 2018 has been a rough year so far for cryptocurrencies as increased regulatory pressures have put the volatile asset class under greater scrutiny.

Bitcoin

Last year, Bitcoin hit an all-time high just shy of 20,000. But with rumors surfacing that South Korea and China will propose a ban on exchanges Bitcoin has fallen precipitously. This morning, Bitcoin dipped below 10,000 marking a 50% loss from its all-time peak. Regulatory oversight is seen has a major issue in the crypto world considering anonymity is one of the main allures to the digital currency market.
