On Tuesday, 16 January, almost all major cryptocurrencies fell in a market slump that continued into Wednesday. Bitcoin, the king of all cryptocurrencies, dropped below USD 10,000, which was almost 50% below its December 2017 peak, after the market entered a second day of a sell-off. According to CoinMarketCap.com, the combined value of over 1,400 cryptocurrencies in circulation fell to USD 460 billion from around USD 800 billion at the start of the month. The causes of the sell-off are not entirely clear, however, some have speculated that the threat of a regulatory crackdown on cryptocurrencies by some governments may have had something to do with it.
It’s been a little over nine years since Satoshi Nakamoto, the anonymous creator (or creators) of Bitcoin, published the paper entitled Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System. Written off for many years, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have since risen to prominence and economists, traders, financial gurus, central bankers and other financial authorities around the world are taking notice.
