Riot Blockchain (NASDAQ: RIOT) stock price is trading 2% below the $10.5 support level after breaking below it on Thursday. In July, The Bitcoin miner stock suffered a massive 50% decline after making a new yearly peak of $20.
There has been a lack of volatility in the price of Bitcoin for the last two weeks after the largest cryptocurrency fell by 11% from its August peak. RIOT shares might only experience a rebound if Bitcoin shows a significant recovery in the coming days.
