Bitcoin drops after hitting highest in mid-June
The leading digital currency Bitcoin has failed to keep up its growth and demonstrated a drop by nearly 3 percent, hitting $23,130 after surpassing the $24,650 level over the weekend. That rise was the highest price mark BTC managed to reach since middle of June.
The 27 percent gained by Bitcoin in July was also the biggest for it since October. According to Bloomberg, some experts believe that August which kicked off today is going to be a hard month for BTC.
At the moment, the king crypto is trading 65.90 percent below its November all-time high of $68,789.
