Bitcoin continues to crater after popular cryptocurrency trading platform Coinbase’s outage on Wednesday,

The cryptocurrency climbed to a high of $13,485.85 Wednesday afternoon, its highest price since January 2018, according to industry site CoinDesk, before starting to drop.

The world’s first and largest cryptocurrency’s fall came at the same time as an outage on popular cryptocurrency trading platform Coinbase. A Coinbase spokesperson told CNBC that the site was down “for a short period of time due to high volume.”

The cryptocurrency is currently trading around $11,960 on Wednesday.

Bitcoin has rallied nearly 30% since Facebook unveiled its new Libra cryptocurrency project. Analysts attributed bitcoin’s price bump to more awareness of the digital asset class.
