Equities have experienced a sharp decline, with the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average both falling by more than 3 per cent. The Nasdaq Composite Index has also experienced a sharp drop, falling by over 4 per cent.

The drop in Bitcoin’s value has been attributed to a number of factors. Some analysts believe that the recent surge in the cryptocurrency’s value was too rapid, and that a correction was inevitable. Others point to the increasing regulatory scrutiny of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as a factor in the drop.

The recent plunge in Bitcoin’s value has caused a wave of uncertainty among investors. While some analysts believe that the cryptocurrency will eventually recover, others are less optimistic.
