Bitcoin cash sank more than 12% Wednesday, falling below $1,000 for the first time since April. The fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap is now trading near $997 per token, even after its recent fork which increased its block size fourfold. "The Bitcoin Cash network has been displaying some erratic behaviour over the past few weeks, which has contributed to the downwards pressure on prices," Iqbal Gandham, managing director for eToro, a British crypto firm, told Business Insider in an email. "Despite a recent surge, it’s now moving towards the head and shoulders pattern we’ve seen since last year."

eToro, the multi-asset broker for retail investors that in March raised $100m for expansion into new markets, plans to launch a cryptocurrency exchange. The group said on Tuesday that it would set up the platform and a digital wallet for users later this year, subject to regulatory approval. It also said it would launch its crypto-trading business in the US. The move comes amid heightened demand for digital money among retail investors that has in part been driven by huge rises in the prices of the leading cryptocurrencies. However, there have also been big falls and the volatile nature of the assets has drawn the attention of regulators, which are keen to assess the potential risks and benefits of crytocurrencies to the wider market.
