Bitcoin slumps hard

Generally, bitcoin went up and down in the last week. Monday soared to a high note, proliferating after retracing on Sunday evening to over $70,000 to register a new all-time high (ATH). The asset kept surging in the following days and peaked at $73,800, which is the current ATH.

It reached its peak on Thursday but was followed by a massive rejection. The bears eventually took control of the market and pushed bitcoin below $66,000 on Friday. On Saturday, bitcoin regained some lost ground and even challenged $70,000.

However, it didn’t have much success and was quickly knocked back down to $68,000. In the last 12 hours or so, bitcoin has fallen again, hitting a new ten-day low of $64,500 (Bitstamp data). Although bitcoin has recovered about $1,000 from this low, it is still down more than 5 percent for the day.
