Bitcoin prices fall after Joe Biden’s tax crackdown

Bitcoin prices continued to tumble today after speculation that a plan by US President Joe Biden to raise capital gains taxes will curb investment in digital assets.

Bitcoin has fallen more than four per cent overnight to trade below $50,000. Last week it touched record highs above $64,000.

The cryptocurrency has also been hit by a series of events since late last week, when there was a blackout in Xinjiang in China – the region is reportedly responsible for powering much of the Bitcoin mining.

The fall in Bitcoin prices comes days after cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase was valued at a whopping $99.6bn in its market float.
