Bitcoin slumps to new 13-month low touching $5173.23 on Bitstamp platform
Bitcoin slumped to a new 13-month low on Monday, with the biggest cryptocurrency touching $5173.23 on the Bitstamp platform.
Bitcoin was last down 5.2 per cent at $5270. The cryptocurrency and other lesser coins including ethereum and XRP endured a sell-off last week, with some blaming fears that a "hard fork" in bitcoin cash, where the smaller coin that split into two separate currencies, could destabilise others.
