Bitcoin extends slide, sheds 5% in Asia, drops below $30,000
Bitcoin fell to an almost three-week low on Friday as profit-taking and worries about extra regulation drive the cryptocurrency toward a weekly loss of more than 15 percent. Bitcoin fell nearly 5 percent to USD 29,300 early in the Asia session, its lowest since Jan. 4 and some 30 percent below its record high of USD 42,000 hit two weeks ago. The pullback comes amid growing concerns that bitcoin is one of a number of financial market price bubbles. Fears that US President Joe Biden’s administration could attempt to regulate cryptocurrencies have also weighed on sentiment, traders said. During a Senate hearing on Tuesday Janet Yellen, Biden’s pick to head the US Treasury expressed concerns that cryptocurrencies could be used to finance illegal activities.
