The June high came after a spike in the price of the cryptocurrency following Britain's shock vote to leave the European Union on June 28th.
Mati Greenspan, a senior market analyst at trading platform eToro, says in an email on Wednesday morning: "If not in the stock markets, the fears are showing up somewhere.

The price of cryptocurrency bitcoin has passed its 2016 peak in recent days, with some market commentators taking it as a sign of fears about global growth in 2017.
