As CryptoPotato reported earlier, the BTC price fell back below the important $60K level. This came following reports of explosions occurring close to Isfahan – near the airport of this Iranian city.

The reports were sourced from FARS – a semi-official news agency in the country, which cited local sources.

Now, however, it was reported by Spectator Index that a senior official from Iran has said there are no plans for immediate retaliation.
