Value of cryptocurrencies has slid 76% after exceeding $800 billion earlier this year

The total value of all cryptocurrencies fell below $200 billion last weekend, down 76% from an all-time high of $832 billion in January. It is a dramatic decline for a sector that experienced furious growth in 2017, driven by a surge in speculative interest around bitcoin.
