The price of bitcoin fell below $8,000 for the fourth time in seven days as the cryptocurrency’s value sank to its lowest level since July 24th.
As of press time, the world’s largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization is averaging $7,764.44, according to CoinDesk’s Bitcoin Price Index (BPI). That figure represents a roughly 4.9 percent decline since the day’s open of $8,168.00 and a step above Tuesday’s reported low of $7,677.94.
Bitcoin was in some familiar territory just yesterday when the price slipped below $7,900, followed by a quick recovery above $8200.
While the recent turbulence can be seen as slight cause for concern for the bulls, bitcoin is less than 12 hours away from closing a productive month during which – as it currently stands – its price increased more than 22 percent and has recorded its most trading volume since February.
Other cryptocurrency markets are faring similarly, market data shows.
At press time, 5 of the 10 largest cryptocurrencies by market capitalization are recording 24-hour percentage losses of more than 5 percent. The biggest loser of which is EOS, which is currently printing a 10.36% loss, according to CoinMarketCap.
