Bitcoin rate (BTC) under $ 9k – are miners the last hope?

Bitcoin price is still looking for ground and has dropped 0.3 percent in the last 24 hours to $ 8,923. From a weekly perspective, the Bitcoin price has therefore fallen by 9.2 percent. Since its last attempt at approaching $ 10,000 last Wednesday, the key crypto currency has lost about $ 1,000 in value and is currently trying to regain the $ 9,000 mark.

In the wake of the Bitcoin course, the altcoins must also fall. With a 24-hour drop of 1.1 percent, the ether price (ETH) was trading at $ 201.90 and fell 5.6 percent in a weekly comparison. With a decrease of 0.4 percent in a year-on-year comparison, the XRP price also buckles slightly and currently slips to $ 0.194. In the last seven days, the ripple coin has thus dropped by 5.1 percent. The IOTA rate (MIOTA), on the other hand, was down 0.8 percent on the day at $ 0.195 and had to drop 4 percent in the last seven days.
