bitcoin below 10k

Bitcoin fell below $10,000 for the first time on Wednesday, after crossing the milestone just a day earlier.

The crypto currency is now trading 13% below its peak of $11,413.03, according to data from Markets Insider.

Other currencies like Ethereum and litecoin also crossed major milestones in the past 24 hours. Ethereum traded above $500 for the first time, and litecoin above $100, but both have since fallen below those marks as well.

The currency has led some on Wall Street to call it’s rise a bubble, as it is up more than 858% this year, and was up more than $2,000 since the Thanksgiving holiday.
