■ General Cryptocurrency News:
Prices and volumes of all major cryptocurrencies soared last week with
prices up 40% across major currencies and the global crypto market
capitalization approaching a 5-month high of over US$185 billion.
Staff at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) published a
framework that will help market participants determine if a digital asset is
deemed to be an investment contract, and therefore a security. The
framework is not a rule, regulation, or statement of the SEC, but is the work
of two of the SEC’s commissioners: Bill Hinman, director of the SEC’s
Division of Corporation Finance and Valerie Szczepanik, Senior Advisor for
Digital Assets and Innovation.
The SEC issued a “no-action letter” to TurnKey Jet, Inc. allowing them to
raise money from the sale of their token without it being considered a
security.
BTC News:
Leading United States derivative market, the CME Group, reported that its
Bitcoin futures trading volume hit an all-time high of over 22,500 contracts
on April 4th, equivalent to ~113,000 BTC and exceeding the previous record
hit February 19th, 2019 of 18,300 contracts equivalent to 64,300 BTC.
Meanwhile, Google search requests for “Bitcoin” tripled during the recent
price surge.
Trading History YTD:
After declining for the first month of 2019, the price of BTC has experienced
a steady upward trajectory, now trading almost 40% higher than where it
began the year.
Current Environment:
Positive price momentum continued in BTC last week, with a sharp spike
last Monday and Tuesday followed by a steady upward trajectory for the
balance of the week.
Volumes were higher week-over-week, averaging 3.6 million coins per day.
The previous weeks volumes averaged 2.5 million coins per day.
