At press time, the father of cryptocurrency – bitcoin – is trading for about $3,400. This is lower than where it stood during the bitcoin cash hard fork of November 2018, which is when bitcoin initially began experiencing heavy drops.
All of 2018 proved rocky for the leader of crypto, though nothing could have prepared enthusiasts for the nasty falls that occurred in later months. During November and December, bitcoin saw itself slinking into the $5,000 range – approximately $1,000 less than where it had stood so willfully over the summer and during the latter half of the year. From there came $4,000 and finally the $3,000 range.
