First thing this morning, we documented the drama unfolding across the cryptoverse where virtually everything is in free fall.

Specifically, Bitcoin had fallen some 30% from the highs hit last weekend ahead of the CME futures launch and is on pace for its worst week since 2013, while bitcoin cash, ethereum, and litecoin are all under extreme pressure as well.

Of course Twitter is loving it:



$BTC 11,111 and falling.
