As U.Today reported earlier, Bitcoin (BTC) has become less volatile than tech stocks. However, the recent reports about Bitcoin’s “maturing” phase turning it into a boring asset might have jinxed the impressive stability of the world’s flagship currency.

Bitcoin Breaks Its Two-Week Stability Streak

Just in the matter of hours, Bitcoin price dipped by $200. After seesawing above the $6,400 mark for nearly two weeks, BTC has reached its recent low of $6,243. At the time of writing this article, the king of crypto is currently sitting at $6,355. Unsurprisingly, Bitcoin’s unexpected volatility also affected the rest of the market: apart from Tether, all top 10 coins remain in the red.
