Bitcoin Continues to Drop in the New Year

The digital currency is getting off to a poor start in 2015 after a rough ride last year

The price of Bitcoin dropped again this week, sliding to its lowest level since early 2013, suggesting that confidence in the contentious cryptocurrency may be shrinking.

On Tuesday, the price of Bitcoin dropped from $267 to about $224, sinking below its April 2013 value, which was before its popularity skyrocketed, according to the New York Times.

In the past year, the digital currency has been hit with myriad setbacks including market woes, fresh regulations and stagnation of usage even as transactions have increased, which in part resulted in a more than 50% drop in the price of bitcoin.
