What going on November last year?
Bitcoin reached a high of over $67,000 in November of last year. It has since dropped significantly. A large number of investors and firms associated with this segment have suffered significant losses as a result of the drop in its price. Many countries’ regulators have also issued warnings to investors about cryptocurrencies.
This has also put more pressure on the market. China has only increased the number of crypto-related transactions in the last year. Bitcoin mining was also prohibited. Some countries, including the United States, are protesting the excessive use of electricity in bitcoin mining.
