Two days ago, BTC had lost a lot and was close to breaking the $ 54,000 mark. This happened after an unsuccessful attempt to beat $ 58,000 for the first time in about five months. However, the bulls have not given up yet and started another impressive rise yesterday. This time, the BTC regained the above-mentioned level and continued to climb.

BTC reached $ 58,500 before another short retracement drove him back below $ 57,000. As a result of the news that the US Securities and Exchange Commission could give a green ETF to BTC futures next week, the value touched USD 60,000 for the first time since April this year.

ETH has been struggling in the last few weeks because it has definitely failed to break above $ 3,600. It even retreated by several hundred dollars, but went on the offensive yesterday and continued north today. As a result, for the first time in months, ETH broke the $ 3,800 mark, but it didn’t last long and is now back below it.

BTC analysis – the price has reached $ 60,000 for a while and the growth is still not over

ANZ settled a debanking case with an Australian trader with BTC

Bitcoiner Allan Flynn settled his first complaint with the Australian and New Zealand banking group (ANZ) for being unilaterally debated in 2018 over his job as a digital currency changer (DCE). The settlement comes 20 months after Canberry residents first lodged a complaint with ANZ in the ACT Civil and Administrative Court.

In the settlement, ANZ stated that it had canceled its accounts due to the risk of money laundering and terrorist financing (ML / TF), which it perceives among money changers. It also acknowledged that Flynn’s act of abolishing banking could “constitute unlawful discrimination in breach of § 7 para. 1 letter p) and Section 20 of the Discrimination Act 1991 ”.

However, ANZ declined any liability, stating that if it “discriminated against Mr Flynn by canceling his accounts, this discrimination was proportionate in the circumstances and therefore lawful”.
