PYMNTS Daily Data Dive: Brexit’s Impact

Today is going to be a bit rocky. The markets have already shown that thanks to the Brexit vote.

That impact is already being felt. As the news of the Brexit rolled in overnight, stock markets crashed, oil prices tanked and the pound sterling plummeted to a 31-year low.

For today’s Daily Data Dive 5-in-1, we broke out a few key numbers:

$344B (£250B) | How much the Bank of England set aside for potential stability measures

$660 | Bitcoin’s price fluctuation was hovering around this price point Friday morning post vote

$560 | Bitcoin’s price fluctuation was hovering around this price point Thursday afternoon pre vote

51.9 percent | How many U.K. voters said “yes” to leaving the EU as of Friday morning’s tally

$1.34 | How much the British pound was worth once voting results became clear — the lowest since 1985
