Bitcoin took a hit Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, falling as low as $15,848, after Coinbase announced it would support bitcoin cash, sending the spinoff flying to new records. Here’s the scoreboard as of Wednesday morning:

  1. Coinbase has been accused of insider-trading after bitcoin cash‘s price surged 40% following the enabling — and subsequent disabling— of the token by the cryptocurrency exchange. “Given the price increase in the hours leading up the announcement, we will be conducting an investigation into this matter,” CEO Brian Armstrong said in a blog post.
  2. Litecoin creator Charlie Lee had faced similar allegations. He announced in a Reddit post on Wednesday that he had “sold and donated” all of his litecoin holdings over recent days, motivated by criticism from people that he was trying to influence the price of litecoin with his tweets.
  3. Global cryptocurrency markets are now averaging the same daily trading volumes as the New York Stock Exchange. 24-hour trade volume in the cryptocurrency market passed the $50 billion mark on Wednesday, according to data provider The NYSE generally averages from $25 – $50 billion per day.
