Following a String of Attacks, Was a Bitcoin Price Drop Inevitable?

So now bitcoin price has gone down again.  After a recent surge of about $20 that got digital currency enthusiasts everywhere feeling pretty happy again, the price has now gone down by about $10 and is hovering around the $233 line.

Naturally, many of us are pretty disappointed, and yet at the same time, such a drop was to be expected.  With the recent malicious activity striking bitcoin exchanges all over the globe, a bitcoin price drop was probably inevitable.  We saw similar circumstances with the Bitstamp hacking, and now we’re likely to see it again here, especially considering there were so many attacks over such a short period of time.

The fact seems to be that when bitcoin security is down, the price goes down, and I suppose in retrospect one can say that when security goes down, trust goes down, and then the price goes down after that.  The price is always the last thing to be hit in ladders like these, so you know that when a massive price drop occurs, it’s likely that something pretty big had to have taken place.

So where exactly do we go from here?  How does the price get brought back up?  How do we start to clean up this massive weekend mess?  These questions are going through my mind, and probably the minds of a great number of cryptocurrency fans, and right now we’re coming up blank.  What does one do in times like these?  More so, what can one do?

It seems like right now we’re waiting for the proper authorities to continue their rounds.  A police investigation is underway in areas such as Hong Kong where the recent MyCoin scandal occurred, and hopefully from there, answers will start to become visible and ready…

But until then, it’s likely we’re all in the dark.
