Bitcoin Today: Prices Stick Close to Flat in Low-Volume Day

Kinsey Grant

Bitcoin prices teetered back and forth into the red and green Thursday, sticking near about $8,350 for most of the trading day before dropping closer to $8,200 late-session. In its latest bid to warn investors of the dangers of investing in illegitimate initial coin offerings (ICOs), the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) created a fake website with a fake offering. The parody site, HoweyCoins.com, mocks ICOs and has a fake eight-page white paper with fake celebrity endorsements and a fake management team working the ICO.
