Bitcoin is crashing. After reaching a peak of approximately $1150 USD per BTC yesterday, a panic selloff is happening now. The price has dropped below 800USD, a loss of over 30%, and may be lower by the time you read this. Or it could recover and go higher. You can watch realtime charts of the bubble bursting at The Genesis Block and other BTC tracking sites. The panic began when the government of China has banned banks from using Bitcoins.

Bitcoin panic selloffs have occurred before, but the price has recovered and increased nearly tenfold. [more inside]
