Let’s dive into the crypto news that has BTC down today below!

  • To be clear, it’s not just Bitcoin that is down today.
  • Other cryptos are also sinking lower as well.
  • That includes Ethereum (CCC:ETH-USD).
  • Part of the decline other cryptos are seeing could have to do with Bitcoin falling.
  • BTC is the largest crypto so when it declines, others follow along its path.
  • The drop in crypto, including BTC today, is connected to several bits of news.
  • Among that is China promising to continue its crusade against crypto miners in the country.
  • The issue at hand is the high energy consumption that crypto mining requires.
  • That’s also prompting Kazakhstan to place restrictions on the practice.
  • The country is dealing with additional stress on its energy grid as a result of crypto mining.
  • It plans to introduce new taxes and regulations to combat this.
  • President Joe Biden signing the new infrastructure bill into law is also weighing on crypto traders today.
  • That bill includes extra definitions for “broker” in an effort to generate additional revenue from crypto.
  • Finally, news that Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) isn’t getting into crypto investments right now is another blow to Bitcoin.
  • This comes directly from CFO Ned Segal.
  • That decision makes sense as Bitcoin and other cryptos can be more volatile investments than what Twitter typically makes.
  • Even so, the stance is likely part of why Bitcoin is down today considering CEO Jack Dorsey’s affection for crypto.

BTC was down 5.8% over a 24-hour period as of Tuesday morning.
