Bitcoin Value Has Dropped 40 Percent In 2015

It looks as though that recent bitcoin heist has everyone spooked. eek!

After $5 million worth of Bitcoin was stolen from exchange giant Bitstamp last week, the price of the popular, anonymous, and sometimes unpredictable cash dipped below USD $300. As of this afternoon, Bitcoin's price now sits at roughly $180 -- up from the day's low of $170.08, and down from the opening price of $226.94. That's a 20 percent price drop in one day of trading.
