Bitcoin’s foiled attempt to tank $44,000

Days back, the number one cryptocurrency tapped a weekly high at $44,500 following an offensive from the bulls trying to recover most losses from the previous week.
However, the bears had the better of the market, denying BTC any price increase above $44,000. They made the price dump $2,500 in hours as Bitcoin bottomed back below $42,000 for the third time in less than seven days.
