Bitcoin Price Analysis


The prospect of another private currency surpassing government issued fiat is a nightmare for central banks. Tasked with oversight and general monetary policy, central banks play a crucial role in the global economy.

The US Federal Reserve, the Bank of England, the Bank of Japan, as well as the ECB wield so much power that the financial path they chose is consequential. Other than that, the SEC and the IRS are relaxing their stance, perhaps sensing that the crypto and blockchain wave is here to stay. Therefore, barring or banning specific coins or the underlying technology is not only allowing for weakness but do block future revenue taps.

Well, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is keen on expunging cryptocurrencies before they take root. At least that is what was reported yesterday before the RBI clarified that they had no intention of banning cryptocurrencies.

According to sources in India, any form of crypto mining, holding or trading of coins will draw a 10-year jail term without bail if a new bill becomes law. The draft bill, Banning of Cryptocurrency and Regulation of Official Digital Currency Bill 2019, is outright punitive and controversial.
