Bitcoin Bulls On The Run, As BTC Tops $7,300

Investing, News | November 15, 2017 By:

Bitcoin sailed back over the $7,000 mark today, hitting as high as $7,300 on some exchanges. The climb up from the $5,800 level has been faster than the descent to the bottom, proving once again the incredible volatility of digital currency.

The air is gently being let out of Bitcoin Cash’s prices. The BCC single-coin price was down to the $1,200 level this morning, a decline of seven percent. The coin’s fortunes soared as legacy BTC melted down, but now appears headed in the opposite direction.
