Bitcoin news today – Top story must be the sudden drop of the cryptocurrency market in the past week that has sent shockwaves through the market. The Bitcoin exchange GDAX, plans to suspend Bitcoin Withdrawals If UASF Activates – this is a warning not to keep your Bitcoins in an online wallet.
The upcoming scaling of Bitcoin, implementation of SEGWIT2X, is still creating much concern and as a result, causing the markets to react negatively. Interesting to note that this downward trend also affected most of the other top crypto currencies such as Ethereum, Litecoin, Dash, Monero to name a few.
