Welcome to the Daily Crypto News: A complete News Review, Coin Calendar and Analysis.
Bitcoin is gyrating amid rallying global stock markets while ether options traders ramp up open interest as the Ethereum network heads for an ambitious upgrade.
- Bitcoin (BTC) trading around $15,384 as of 21:00 UTC (4 p.m. ET). Gaining 0.05% over the previous 24 hours.
- Bitcoin’s 24-hour range: $14,845-$15,842
- BTC above its 10-day and 50-day moving average, a bullish signal for market technicians.
After bitcoin rallied over $200 on news that Pfizer’s vaccine trial showed it was 90% effective in preventing coronavirus infections, the price suffered a drop of almost $1,000 within hours Monday. The sell-off went from $15,842 shortly after Pfizer’s announcement early in the morning to as low as $14,845 around 16:30 UTC (8:30 a.m. ET). It has since recovered, changing hands at $15,389 as of press time, according to CoinDesk 20 data.
Liquidations on BitMEX, as tracked by data aggregator Skew, are on the decline.
“With the S&P 500 touching a new all-time high today alongside news of a Pfizer COVID vaccine showing strong promise, it will be interesting to see how BTC behaves in the weeks ahead,” said Daniel Kohler, liquidity manager at San Francisco-based cryptocurrency exchange OKCoin. “For the past few weeks we were seeing a rise in BTC and S&P 500 correlations — with BTC trading at levels not seen since 2017, it will be interesting to see if that trend reverts or we continue to see outperformance.”
Ether options interest at all-time high
The Treasury Department of the United Kingdom has revealed it is drafting proposals to regulate private stablecoins, while also researching central bank digital currencies (CBDC) as an alternative to cash.
In an announcement published on Nov. 9, U.K. Treasury Chancellor Rishi Sunak noted the forthcoming regulatory proposals alongside other goals for the country’s financial services industry — including a review of the U.K.’s listings regime and support for green finance.
“New technologies such as stablecoins – privately-issued digital currencies – could transform the way people store and exchange their money, making payments cheaper and faster.”
“We are starting a new chapter in the history of financial services and renewing the UK’s position as the world’s pre-eminent financial center [...] Our plans will ensure the UK moves forward as an open, attractive and well-regulated market.”
A public statement from staff within the SEC’s Division of Investment Management indicates the agency is evaluating the term “qualified custodian” as it relates to digital assets.
- SEC staff issued a public statement asking questions about the definition of "qualified custodian."
- That term is traditionally applied to banks, brokerages, and futures commission merchants.
- The Wyoming Division of Banking, however, applied it to Ocean Trust, a wealth management firm.
The statement, from the SEC’s Division of Investment Management, follows a no-action letter from the Wyoming Division of Banking to a state-chartered public trust company, Two Ocean Trust. In it, the division judges Two Ocean to be a “qualified custodian” and therefore eligible to “provide custodial services for digital assets under Wyoming law, including virtual currency and digital (tokenized) securities.”
This may seem like inside baseball (and it is). However, depending on where the SEC ultimately comes down, it could let traditional registered investment advisors, who may have been reticent to get involved with crypto custody, know what the score is.
🗞 'Dr Doom' Nouriel Roubini Admits Bitcoin May Be a Store of Value, Sees Big Revolution in Central Bank Digital Currencies
Economist Nouriel Roubini, also known as “Dr. Doom,” has admitted that bitcoin may be a store of value. Roubini sees a “big revolution” coming in the next three years due to central banks launching their own digital currencies.
Nouriel Roubini Sees Store of Value in Bitcoin
After years of publicly mocking and ridiculing bitcoin, Nouriel Roubini has admitted that bitcoin may be a partial store of value.
Roubini teaches at New York University’s Stern School of Business and has his own economic consulting firm called Roubini Macro Associates. Famed for predicting the housing bubble crash of 2007-2008, his gloomy predictions have earned him the nickname “Dr. Doom” in the media.
Dr. Doom has been a long-standing critic of bitcoin. In a Senate hearing in October 2018, he called cryptocurrencies “the mother of all scams and bubbles.” He also said that the cryptocurrency world is a “stinking cesspool” and is fundamentally worth nothing.
