Bitcoin Drops Below $30,000 For First Time In A Month

Bitcoin fell to its lowest Tuesday in almost one month, dropping or less $30,000 as regulators continued to call for stricter controls on cryptocurrencies.

The world's largest cryptocurrency fell to $29,300 by 5 percent, the lowest since 22 June. At $29,720 it was down 3.6%.

Ether and XRP, which tend to fluctuate in tandem with Bitcoin, also lost approximately 5% of smaller coins.

Investors said that Bitcoin was probably testing last month's lowest level of 28,600 dollars since the start of January.

In recent weeks Bitcoin has been traded reasonably closely after investors sold heavily in May and June following a crypto-monetary mining and trading assault by China.

In recent times, financial supervisors and central bankers in the West also called for stronger regulation.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen told regulators Monday that the United States must move quickly to develop a legal framework for the fast-expanding digital money class called stable coins.

Bitcoin dropped on Tuesday to almost 15 percent in the month. Since reaching a peak of almost $65,000 in April, it has dropped by more than half.
