Why Bitcoin- And Ethereum-Related Stocks Are Falling

Cryptocurrency-related stocks, including Coinbase Global Inc COIN, Marathon Digital Holdings Inc MARA and Riot Blockchain Inc RIOT, are trading lower Monday amid a sharp decrease in the price of Bitcoin BTC/USD and Ethereum ETH/USD

Bitcoin, the world's oldest cryptocurrency, fell to its lowest levels since the end of 2020 on Monday. The crypto market seems to be falling amid a selloff in broader risk assets after traditional markets traded sharply lower last week in the wake of runaway inflation data. 

Crypto lending company Celsius stopped withdrawals for its customers, which has sparked investor fear. Binance also paused Bitcoin withdrawals, citing a "stuck transaction."

Coinbase is the leading cryptocurrency exchange platform in the United States. The stock was down 17.1% at $48.77 at time of publication, according to data from Benzinga Pro.

Marathon Digital is focused on mining digital assets. The company owns cryptocurrency mining machines and a data center to mine the digital assets. Marathon Digital shares were down 16.2% at $6.32 at press time.

Riot Blockchain is focused on building, supporting and operating blockchain technologies. The stock was down 14.9% at $4.40 at time of publication.
