Bitcoin price slumped on Wednesday as Facebook’s Libra was slammed in the Senate. The cryptocurrency plunged 14.9% to $9,379 by 11:40 PM ET (03:40 GMT).

Senators called Facebook’s crypto proposal as a toddler playing matches who burns the house down and criticized the company for repeatedly violating consumers’ privacy. During the hearing, a U.S. senator said the social media giant was “delusional” to believe people will trust it with their money.
