Bitcoin Price: Another Sudden Sell-Off After a Steady Month
January 11, 2019 6:59 pm

Bitcoin Price

At this point, there doesn’t need to be a reason for Bitcoin price to drop suddenly. The market is so volatile by nature it is almost pointless to look for why. So, in true fashion, yesterday’s sudden sell-off confirms just that.

There was no major market news reported, and despite this, Bitcoin price dropped 10% in a 24-hour period. Go figure.

The drop ended what was a (relatively) steady month for the coin.

January 9, 2019 10:07 pm

Tron

The world’s eighth-largest cryptocurrency, TRON (TRX), is making quite the bull-run this week.

The company only entered the mining hardware sector in 2017, so that was very short-lived.

Bitcoin price is currently down 2% on the day and selling for $3,792. Today’s action is reminiscent of previous days in the week where the coin has dropped a few percents but then gained a few more and vice versa.

Disappointingly, the coin has failed to break back above the $4,000 mark that it fell below one month ago. It seemed like it might do that this week, as we saw several bursts. However, Bitcoin price remains steady as it holds firmly, and predominantly, between the $3,800-$3,900 price points.
