Bitcoin falls below $10K for first time since November

Bitcoin falls below $10K for first time since November

Bitcoin was trading 13% lower at $9,769, (£7,065) according to Coindesk data, a dramatic fall from its December highs of almost $20,000 (£14,465).

Bitcoin had a stellar year in 2017, starting at around $800 and steadily gaining value, before touching an all-time high of $19,783 on December 17th. This has added to volatility and, in Bitcoin's case, curbed sustained rallies seen past year.

More than 80 percent of the total number of Bitcoin has already been mined, according to a new report. There were raids on cryptocurrency exchanges, and then last week Justice Minister Park Sang-ki threatened to ban trading altogether. The Ripple (XRP) price has grown by 26% over the last 24 hours and there's every chance it could keep going as traders fear missing out again.

Bitcoin has seen its share of peaks and troughs over the years but dipping from $20,000 to less than $10,000 in a matter of weeks was certainly unexpected. Bitcoin moved back to the $12,000 mark in Thursday's trade, signifying a growth of more than 20% compared to the previous close.

Even with the massive fall the Daniel Duarte Figueiredo who is a co-founder of Auctus blockchain firm remain very optimistic that Bitcoin will recover. Other digital currencies bounced around as well.

Throughout the correction, the dominance index of bitcoin, which declined to an all-time low in early January, surged from 32 percent to 38 percent, as alternative cryptocurrency investors reallocated their funds into major cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and Ethereum.

Last week, it emerged that South Korea was reportedly moving to rein in speculative cryptocurrency trading with a potential bill to ban cryptocurrency trading. Ethereum, another virtual currency, lost 27.6% to 465,000 won over the same period. "We do not think that the complete banning of cryptocurrencies is possible", he said. That's a remarkable mass adoption of a new and untested investment vehicle, especially since cryptocurrency costs about 30 percent more on South Korean exchanges than on those used in the West.
