Bitcoin, the world’s largest cryptocurrency, resumes its bearish momentum and hit fresh weekly lows near $ 12,500 levels, reversing a temporary bounce seen a day before. Bitcoin fell sharply amid a broad-based sell-off across the cryptocurrencies’ space after South Korea’s Justice Minister said a bill to ban cryptocurrency trade was being prepared. The move comes as the South Korean government pushed the regulatory crackdown on the cryptocurrency exchanges.
