Cryptocurrencies plunge, Bitcoin drops 5%

Cryptocurrencies took a dive on Friday, after a week of somewhat volatile trading, with Bitcoin down by over 5%, and the world's second-largest crypto, Ether, losing close to 9%.

The downward trend coincided with the general slump across the markets, prompted by the emergence of the coronavirus' new variant.

Bitcoin dived 5.75% at 3:44 am ET, selling for $55,659, while Ether tumbled 8.67% a minute later, going for $4,128.77.
