Bitcoin dips below $6,000 amid cryptocurrency sell-off -CNBC
"Bitcoin fell below $6,000 Monday for the first time since June as the majority of cryptocurrencies declined in value. The world's largest digital currency by market value tumbled as low as $5,900 and was down around 4 percent, according to CoinDesk index data, which tracks prices from several exchanges. The top 100 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization were all lower as of 9:00 a.m. ET, according to data from CoinMarketCap.com, and the total market capitalization of all cryptocurrencies fell by $21 billion in the last 24 hours....According to Charles Hayter, chief executive of digital comparison site CryptoCompare, the downward move in cryptocurrencies was on the back of the postponement of a bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) proposed by VanEck and Solid X. If approved, that ETF would be the first to track cryptocurrency assets."
