At the time of writing, BTC/USD fell 1.55 percent to 5,647.50. Meanwhile, the near-term support is seen at $5,000.00 and resistance at $6,000.00.

Market Update: According to a report from CoinTelegraph, "Crypto loans company Salt Lending Holdings Inc., once associated with high-profile crypto industry stalwart Erik Voorhees, is facing a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) probe over its 2017 $50 million token sale."
