Cryptocurrencies are gaining today along with the major indices on Wall Street. Concerns about the banking crisis have eased somewhat, with investors finally taking a positive view of Fed Chairman Powell's comments yesterday. The rally continues despite news of an investigation into Justin Sun, the creator of the Tron blockchain, and subsequent fines targeting celebrities who promoted his cryptocurrency. The largest crypto exchange in the US, Coinbase (COIN.US), has received a so-called Wells notice evidencing possible enforcement and irregularities identified by the SEC regarding the assets and services offered on the platform.
- The SEC maintains that all cryptocurrencies except Bitcoin are securities, while the Coinbase exchange has announced a confrontation with the regulator in court. At the time of Binance US's acquisition of the assets of bankrupt Voyager, a judge dismissed the SEC's request to halt the transaction;
- He pointed to the unclear regulation of the industry and the incompatibility of the SEC and CFTC regulators towards what cryptocurrencies de facto are. The industry read the position as a possible preliminary precedent for wins against the SEC in other court cases. However, the bullish sentiment faded somewhat after a broader announcement from the US Securities Exchange Commission, which warned against the crypto market;
- SEC maintains that entities that offer cryptocurrency trading may not be operating in accordance with US law. Despite these comments, shares of the Coinbase (COIN.US) exchange managed to erase some of the losses, although still losing nearly 11%. A general increase in risk appetite is supporting the quotations of the largest cryptocurrency.
Bitcoin, M30 interval. The price of the main cryptocurrency rebounded from the 23.6 Fibonacci retracement of the upward wave started on 10 March and the SMA100 and SMA200 averages. It has thus resumed the bullish momentum and is testing the previous resistance near 28,500 USD. Overcoming 28,800 USD could open the way for the bulls to rally towards 30,000 USD. Source: xStation5
