From Bitcoin can drop below $ 6k to an exceptionally high ETHE transaction fee on Grayscale, here are some highlights in the crypto space.
Since peaking at $ 10,500 two weeks ago, Bitcoin has not performed well. Prices fell to as low as $ 8,520 after millions of dollars of positions were liquidated, marking a 19% decline from the peak.
