Bitcoin valuation continues to tumble today after China continued to impose strict rules against usage of cryptocurrency, leading to further valuation declines across the crypto world.
The beginning of the coin’s downfall began after Elon Musk tweeted that Tesla would no longer be accepting the coin as payment due to environmental concerns, prompting a response from Mark Cuban and sending shockwaves through the crypto community.
At their highest declines, Bitcoin plummeted 30% to around $30,000 (its lowest valuation since January of this year), Ethereum saw a 40% decrease and Dogecoin dropped around 22%.

Users can drop the name of the stock they want to put $5 towards and the company will send the credit to their Robinhood account until the company maxes out at $50,000.
Robinhood clarified that users must tweet a specific stock, not a cryptocurrency, in order to receive the credit.
Though Robinhood allows users to make crypto transactions and purchases, the service does not allow for crypto fund withdrawal, meaning users have to sell coins and then transfer the balance to an external, alternate account.
The company is expected to reveal details of its IPO filing as early as next week.
