According to Bloomberg data consulted by EFE, at the close of operations yesterday, bitcoin fell more than 8%, and at this time it falls another 1.69%, to $19,883.9, which is its lowest level since the past January 13.
Experts explain that bitcoin is being affected for various reasons; the first due to the intention of Silvergate Capital to liquidate its bank specializing in cryptocurrencies, Silvergate Bank, due to the difficulties in the sector.
