  • 04:13 ESMA Finds Crypto-Asset Regulatory Gaps

    The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has found regulatory gaps in the licensing regime for crypto-asset related activities, as well as in the governance processes associated with cyber security and cloud outsourcing.
    Two surveys conducted by ESMA earlier this year gathered evidence from national competent authorities (NCAs) across the EU on the treatment of FinTech firms within their jurisdictions. The research confirmed that NCAs do not typically distinguish between newer FinTech and more traditional business models in their decision making, since they authorise a financial activity and not a technology.

  • 04:03 Top Republican Touts Blockchain Privacy As Alternative To Regulating Big Tech

  • 01:29 CoinNess.com Analysis: Libra Hearing Results May Be The Key To The Price Rebound Of BTC

    Bitcoin, the world's largest crypto, is trading around $10,800, marking $10,812.34 with a daily increase of 5.86%. According to the analysis by Miles W., the in-house cryptocurrency analyst at CoinNess.com, the trading volume of Bitcoin since price rebound yesterday (July 15) has been lower than that in the declining period on July 10, so this rebound could push the price to cross $11,200, with $12,000 still positioned as the resistance level.
    The reversal last night is more likely affected by a hearing regarding Facebook's new cryptocurrency, Libra, held by the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. The U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin stated in a press conference that Facebook's planned digital currency "could be misused by money launderers and terrorist financiers" and that it was a "national security issue." "With regard to Facebook's Libra, our overriding goal is to maintain the integrity of our financial system and protect it from abuse," Mnuchin said. "We will not allow digital asset service providers to operate in the shadows."
    Most of investors seem very optimistic in their way of understanding Mnuchin's word. "Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin basically told everyone to follow the rules and not doing illegal things with Bitcoin or crypto. Sounds like a green light for those who want to do things the right way," Morgan Creek co-founder Anthony Pompliano voiced on Twitter.
    There is no doubt that the U.S. government's attitude towards Libra is tied with the crypto market. The next hearing held at 14:00 UTC on July 17 could exert an impact on movements of the prices in BTC and even the whole market. Therefore, investors need to be alert to the market volatility.

  • 22:15 ANZ Says Facebook's Libra Is No Bank-Buster

    ANZ Bank has offered its opinion on Facebook's proposed Libra cryptocurrency and while the bank hasn't kicked holes in the idea it has identified some worrying weaknesses. The Bank's director for institutional portfolio management James Culham hit the Bluenotes blog and assessed Facebook's assertion that Libra will be more stable than other cryptocurrencies because it will be backed by real-world assets. His take is that Libra won't be able to deliver on that promise unless it works with the current financial system. "Those celebrating the end of the traditional banking system or government financial hegemony, hold on - the reserve of assets will include bank deposits and short-term government securities in currencies from stable and reputable central banks," Culham wrote. But he added his opinion that Libra's design doesn't make it immune from being buffeted by markets.
