Since yesterday, bitcoin's total market cap has dropped from $193 to $182 billion – a decrease of $11 billion.

It has been a tough last 24 hours for the world’s crypto markets. The world’s biggest cryptocurrency bitcoin was trading as high as $10,955 on Tuesday, but the price never managed to climb above $11,000.

Instead, on Wednesday morning (CEST), the bitcoin price fell several hundred dollars in just a few minutes and eventually traded as low as $10,082, according to numbers from Bitstamp.

This is a decline of about eight percent. Bitcoin is still struggling to stay above the $10,000 mark.

Bitcoin’s total market cap has dropped from $193 to $182 billion since yesterday – a decrease of $11 billion.

Bitcoin now accounts for 68.9 percent of the total market value for all cryptocurrencies, according to Coinmarketcap.
