Bomb Threats Demanded Bitcoin, Bitcoin Plummets

Bitcoin plummeted more than 6% to near $3,300 a coin on Thursday.

Business Inside reports the New York Police Department said that bomb threats were emailed around the country Thursday afternoon along with a demand for bitcoin.

The NYPD said in a tweet, "Please be advised - there is an email being circulated containing a bomb threat asking for bitcoin payment.

While this email has been sent to numerous locations, searches have been conducted and NO DEVICES have been found." According to the FBI, the threats were made around the country with at least 13 threats made in New York City.

Bitcoin, a digital currency, has lost half of its value since November 14.
