As you know only in the month of November the drop in the capitalization of the stock market amounted to 70 billion dollars, after a hard forks of Bitcoin Cash. Bitmain in turn have in their structure a substantial support of this project, led by Roger Ver, and his quest to take a lead on the stock market.
Bitcoin seriously lost in value after risk to take the second place after Bitcoin Cash, which caused a prolonged wave of sales in a few months.
Another reason for the fall of bitcoin exchange rate today were the rumors that the CFTC will take the date of the announcement of its verdict to launch bitcoin futures Bakkt. Moreover according to analysts, the reason is simple, it’s the lack of time to prepare the relevant documentation.
