At the beginning of trading today, Wednesday, the cryptocurrency “Bitcoin” continued to decline for the third time in a row, to lose about $ 160.1, or 0.5%, to reach $32.66 thousand, according to data available on the “Coin MarketCap” website.
The cryptocurrency has not witnessed increases since the beginning of this month, except in three sessions only, compared to its decline in 6 sessions, which suggests the control of violent fluctuations on its performance during that period.
On the monthly level, Bitcoin’s losses worsened until it lost about 11% of its value, compared to its closing at the end of last May at $37.29 thousand.
In more than two months, Bitcoin lost nearly half of its value, after it reached a record high of $65,000 last April.
And “Bitcoin” fell yesterday, Tuesday, to its lowest level in two weeks, with the recovery of the ransom paid by the oil pipeline company Colonial Pipeline to recover data that was stolen, as evidence that the digital currency is not far from government control.
