As dawn broke across Asia, Bitcoin (BTC) tantalizingly hinted at reaching new heights, surpassing $38K in an overnight surge. This uptick, however, was short-lived, as Bitcoin swiftly retraced its steps back to around $37K. In contrast, Ethereum (ETH) maintained a consistent performance, firmly anchoring itself at the $2K mark for the past week. Notably, Solana (SOL) emerged as the only significant mover among major cryptocurrencies, achieving more significant gains overnight. It successfully breached the $60 mark this morning, recovering from a slip to $59 the previous day.
What to Watch Out for Today
U.S. Treasury Pushes for Expanded International Crypto Oversight: The U.S. Department of the Treasury is lobbying for increased powers to regulate the cryptocurrency market, especially focusing on non-U.S. stablecoin issuers like Tether (USDT). This move aims to bolster the government’s ability to combat illicit finance and terrorism funding through digital assets. With Deputy Secretary of the Treasury Wally Adeyemo spearheading this campaign, the implications for the crypto industry could be substantial. What could this mean for non-U.S. based stablecoin giants like USDT?
Grayscale Prepares for GBTC to Bitcoin ETF Conversion: Grayscale is revising the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) agreement for the first time since 2018, gearing up for a potential conversion into a spot Bitcoin ETF. This strategic update could level the playing field against competitors like BlackRock. With the crypto community eagerly awaiting the SEC’s decision, is approval for Grayscale’s Bitcoin ETF application on the horizon?
Dogecoin-Funded SpaceX Moon Mission Progresses: The DOGE-1 satellite, funded entirely by Dogecoin (DOGE), is inching closer to launch. Following a recent regulatory nod from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, the project awaits final FCC licensing. With the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket scheduled to carry the DOGE-1 satellite, the unique collaboration between cryptocurrency and space exploration continues to captivate. Could this Dogecoin-funded mission to the moon take the token’s value with it?
