IOTA (MIOTA) down: crypto-currency dropped by nearly 40% since yesterday' s historic record high

The currency lost more than a third of its value in a few hours. It had exceeded $5.50 (44,500 satoshis) yesterday morning and had fallen back to $3.36 (22,700 satoshis) when this article was written.

It presents itself as the "backbone" of the Internet of Things, offering the possibility for all the technical resources of the world to be exchanged in real time in a market place:
