The top cryptocurrencies for the week of June 13th

As bitcoin flirts with lows that we haven’t seen since February, it’s worth taking a look at one of the key causes.  In case you haven’t been paying attention, the South Korean cryptocurrency exchange Cointrail announced on Sunday that their system was hacked.  While 30 percent of Contrail’s coins were stolen, it’s not as bad as it sounds when you consider that the exchange is relatively small.

Of course, markets not only like to panic but fear tends to bring about even more fear.  Yet if you’ve spent any time following bitcoin, you know that sentiment can turn on a dime.  Glance at any short-term or long-term chart and it’s impossible to ignore the volatility.  At the end of the day. so called cyber intrusion should lead to more regulation, increased oversight and better security for crypto currency options in general.
