Bitcoin briefly plunges below $2,100 as upward momentum fades

Bitcoin briefly plunges below $2,100 as upward momentum fades

On each of the last four days, the digital currency rose more than $100 to the high for the day, climbing as much as $315 on Thursday, more than 40 percent higher for the week, before erasing those gains, CoinDesk data showed.
