The number one cryptocurrency by it’s market cap, Bitcoin, got down more than 60% from its highest point less than two months ago. As we can see here on this, Bitcoin is now trading for a little less than $9,000. This is far from the $20,000 Bitcoin we once saw – but then again – another great opportunity for buying (according to many).
It seems that many of the traders got terrified with the current downfall trend in the value of (the once) $20,000and also because of the bad news we received from Korea and India. Another thing that happened is the announcement from major US banks. They said that they wouldn’t support any crypto purchase.

But if those allegations are true, we can, unfortunately, face another big plunge in the price of
So, while we won’t see the $20,000 Bitcoin soon – this is definitely a great period to buy, especially considering the recent gains in the price of Bitcoin.
