The bulk of fiat centered fiat/Bitcoin interfaces are testing a price that would drop the value of a United States dollar to 1/1400th of a Bitcoin on their markets. The malaise affecting fiat currencies has kept the dollar trading under 1/1000th of a Bitcoin for most of 2017. At the present fiat/Bitcoin interfaces which are outliers from the pack include BTCChina which has illegally cooperated with the PBOC to stop Bitcoin outflows while still allowing fiat outflows leaving it a laggard where a dollar is still a whopping 1/1180th of a Bitcoin, simply for the reason that a dollar can be taken off of their troubled platform. Bitfinex is also an outlier in the other direction where a dollar is a mere 1/1497th of a Bitcoin as it goes through Goxian death pains.
