Bitcoin fell below $ 8K at the end of the worst week in 2019

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The Bitcoin exchange rate fell below $ 8 thousand, while over the past week it fell by about 20%, according to MarketWatch.

This was the largest weekly drop this year.

Over the past three months, cryptocurrency has lost about 34% of its value.

However, since the beginning of this year, it has grown by 115%. In June, the rate rose above $ 10 thousand for the first time since the beginning of 2018.

Bitbull Capital’s chief executive Joe Deepaskwale believes the recent drop in bitcoin is a result of “technical and fundamental factors.”

Cryptocurrency is now trading around $ 7,796.43, which is 2.8% lower than the previous day, according to CoinDesk. Bitcoin’s market capitalization is around $ 144.6 billion, according to estimates.

The Bitcoin exchange rate reached a historical maximum of almost $ 20 thousand at the end of 2017.
