Bitcoin rose to $43,000 on the weekend’s positive start. On Sunday, however, bitcoin plunged to $40,500, before a sudden surge in price drove it to over $43,000.

According to reports, the bulls took it further Monday and BTC reached a three-day peak of $44,300. It failed to hold that level and began to lose value over the next hours.
