Do you think it is bitcoin rate growth? — I’m sad to say, but no, it is USD falling down. In safe haven searching the mass of excess dollars attacks everything it sees: euro, gold, silver. So bitcoin just came under hot hand. And in this time Steven Mnuchin, the US Treasury Secretary, has said about the new $1 trillion from a helicopter.
USD is losing ground totally not only as the most liquid asset, but it is putting himself at high inflation risk soon.
And what about bitcoin, the scenario of a sharp falling to about $3000 is not…
A US Federal Court said Friday that bitcoin is a form of money covered under the Washington D.C., Money Transmitters Act (MTA).
The court made this conclusion as it denied a motion to dismiss criminal charges against Larry Dean Harmon, the operator of an underground bitcoin trading platform.
Harmon’s service (Helix) is a mixer that launders money from the darknet (drugs, carding, hacking) in fact. Herman’s lawyers were able to challenge the court’s indictment half-year ago, the argument was that bitcoin is not a money so it is impossible to launder bitcoins. …

American tax service IRS wants to hack the “unhackable”. IRS has publicated contract to “Cryptocurrency Tracing”.
Monero (XMR), Zcash (ZEC), Dash (DASH), Grin (GRIN), Komodo (KMD), Verge (XVG), and Horizon (ZEN) are interesting to them. Also IRS wants to know more about the off-chain protocol networks (Lightning Network, Raiden Network, Celer Network), the side-chains (Plasma and OmiseGo) and coins support Schnorr Signature algorithm (Bitcoin Cash).

A lot of people have understood that bitcoin is not a digital gold when the falling down stock markets pulled along bitcoin in the March 2020. But to my mind the fact is not a cause for sadness.

US Fed Chair said about digital dollar: “It’s our obligation to understand it well and not wake up one day and realize that the dollar is no longer the world reserve currency because we just missed a technological change”.
Powell said also that private entities aren’t needed to build central bank digital currencies. So now a ideas about Ripple and Stellar as a digital dollar would be discussed between a dreamers only. Nothing from the existing cryptocurrencies would be a digital dollar. The Federal Reserve will never allow.
But what about the idea “wake up one day and realize that…
