At press time, bitcoin is retaining its $ 6,100 price from yesterday. The currency fell to this position from $ 6,700 after Japan’s Financial Services Agency (FSA) sent notifications to more than five digital currency exchanges saying that they must heighten their security measures against money laundering after noticing weaknesses in their infrastructures.
Bitcoin has continued to suffer drops over the past week. Its initial slump to $ 6,700 occurred after hovering at the $ 7,600 mark for some time, and now the price is just $ 100 away from its February low. While bitcoin did drop below $ 6,000 during yesterday’s evening hours, things didn’t last, and the coin quickly pushed itself back up to $ 6,100, where it has been ever since.
