Bitcoin's rise was meteoric this week — and its decline has been just as swift.
It's easy come, easy go in the crypto world, where a frenzy over Bitcoin pushed its price to nearly $US14,000 on Wednesday, its highest level since January 2018.

The retreat accelerated Thursday and put the coin's price back to nearly the same level as just five days ago.
