Cryptocurrency prices slumped in the ongoing crisis sparked by the downfall of Sam Bankman-Fried’s once powerful FTX empire.

The largest token Bitcoin has shed as much as 4.7% to $15,485 on Monday, the least since November 2020. Second-ranked Ether is roughly 5% lower. Meme token Dogecoin -- a gauge of the most speculative sentiment in an already racy digital playground -- is down about 12% over the past two days.
