Bitcoin [BTC] tumbles below $4,000; coin had touched $10,000 this time last year


Earlier this week, the whole cryptocurrency market sprinkled hopes of entering the bull’s kingdom. The coins bounced back to the price it was trading at in the beginning of the month. However, the bull’s reign seems to come to an end as the whole market has started to bleed again.

Bitcoin [BTC], the largest cryptocurrency by market cap, has plunged below the $4000-mark again, only after a few days of trading above the $4,000-mark. The coin is currently trading at $3,957 on Coinbase, losing over $200 within a few minutes.

The highest trading volume for the coin is recorded on BitMEX with BTC/USD pairs. The second highest trading volume is pouring in from Binance with USDT pairing. Other exchanges in the top five are Coinbene, Liquid, and OKEx.

“Sweet 3000!! This is like a 98% flash sale on Walmart and Amazon. Black Friday all over again. Buy and HODL see you when we are at 20K. The best part is everyone knows that everything is dirt cheap and it’s just a matter of time before we propel again.”
