CoinMarketCap.com Glitch – Bitcoin is Not Crashingbr>
A brief glitch today on CoinMarketCap.com seemed to indicate a massive overnight sell-off in bitcoin, showing the single-coin price plummet to just above the crucial $2,000 mark. That would be down $500 from yesterday’s $2,500 range.
Fortunately, that information proved to be a temporary glitch, and bitcoin was soon trading back in the mid-$2,500 range. CoinMarketCap could not be reached for comment.
Reddit users noticed the change, and several Twitter users also commented on the price rollercoaster. Some blamed a large dump of bitcoin on a Russian exchange for the issue.

Users have criticized the service in the past for its policies.
