Bitcoin touched $3,125 on Dec. 15, 2018, which was an 85 percent correction from December 2017 All-Time High.

Sharp falling BTC mining difficulty is because of China’s Sichuan province halting Bitcoin mining. Thanks to Chinese authorities, it has become a lot easier to find and add new blocks in Bitcoin blockchain.
