Bitcoin Prices Continue The Comeback, While Bitcoin Cash Stallsbr>
Bitcoin continued its long climb back today, hitting the $6,700 mark on some exchanges before falling back slightly. Legacy bitcoin suffered a $2,000 single-coin price loss since its $7,900 all-time high, but investors seem ready to get it back to those heights in short order.
Meanwhile, Bitcoin Cash has cooled slightly, sitting at $1,346 this morning, up just percentage points. Its dazzling run – which some believe may be suspicious – has now settled in after an astonishing run of skyrocketing prices.
