Bitcoin price has plunged on Wednesday amid El Salvador’s rocky rollout of digital gold as a legal tender. Hit by tech glitches and angry protests, BTC lost almost 13.66% of yesterday's gains.
The worldwide crypto market capitalization is currently $2 trillion, down 15.09% over the last day. Whereas the global crypto 24h volume is at $243.40 billion, which makes a 63.88% increase from yesterday.
However, analysts believe that El Salvador's adoption might not be the only reason for Bitcoin's latest eye-watering volatility as Federal Reserve stimulus reduction can be also blamed for it.
