The first reason. Enhancing EU controlAccording to one of the versions, the decrease in the cost of BTC is indirectly related to the initiative from the EU on the topic of regulating cryptocurrency. The authorities are carefully examining cryptocurrency and blockchain. We reported that the European Parliament supported the creation of a separate organization the main task of which would be to study and analyze the technology of blockchain. Behind the scenes, such a measure is considered a step towards regulating the cryptocurrency world, not a research method.
The second reason. Increased attention of the SECNot only Europe, but also the US seeks to keep the field of cryptocurrencies under control. For example, the Securities and Exchange Commission claims that cryptocurrency exchange are reluctant to adhere to SEC standards. This means that the regulator will act even stricter while establishing legislative norms for digital money. Perhaps, the first logical thing that can be done is not to rush with selling. Sometimes a cryptocurrency falls so low that it would seem that only crazy people sit around and calmly watch what is happening. But, supposedly, it is at this time that experienced traders earn money while keeping a cold mind. During all of its existence, Bitcoin has plummeted many times, but almost always restored its value (it almost reached a record $20k mark). If you want to earn on the difference in rates, then you should definitely:
- Choose a reliable cryptocurrency exchange;
- Determine the most profitable cryptocurrency pairs which you will work with, for example, BTC/USD or BTC/ETH.
- Follow the news and rates. With high volatility, experts do not advise to take any action if you are a beginner and own large investments.
