The Bitcoin price fellow below $4000 again November 30 as upward momentum stalled, taking the largest cryptocurrency to local lows of $3920.
$4.4K Spelled Rejection For Bitcoin
As of press time Friday, BTC/USD [coin_price] was circling $3950 after climbing as high as $4390 a day earlier.
The turnaround continues the trend of volatility which began two weeks ago with the advent of the Bitcoin Cash hard fork. In the intervening period, analysts and pundits have revised down their expectations for Bitcoin in the mid term.
According to Bitcoinist contributor FilbFilb, the latest failure to find support at $4000 calls for the Bitcoin price to extend its downturn, possibly as far as $3000.
Earlier this week, Civic CEO Vinny Lingham had told mainstream media the suppression could continue much longer, with BTC/USD staying under $5000 for “at least” three months.

Not Everyone Is Worried
Across altcoin markets meanwhile, Bitcoin’s drop led to fresh difficulties for the majority of the top twenty assets by market cap. Only Bitcoin SV, the new fork of Bitcoin Cash, escaped the trend, having begun trading in opposition to BTC since its creation.
According to data from Coinmarketcap, both number two and three assets Ripple (XRP) [coin_price coin=ripple] and Ether (ETH) [coin_price coin=ethereum] had fallen to a slightly lesser extent than BTC over the past 24 hours.
While worries continue over the fate of cryptocurrency structures from ICOs to miners due to prices sinking, however, investment sources appear increasingly resilient.
This week saw a further multimillion-dollar fund set up in from German outfit Xolaris geared to mining investment. The decision, executives said in a press release, was in response to client demand for a “regulated product.”
Prior to that, Bitcoinist reported, the government of Paraguay had gone considerably further, confirming its official support for the world’s largest Bitcoin mining farm, a project dubbed ‘Golden Goose.’
