MARKETS

After Monday’s crash, when the primary cryptocurrency fell below $ 30,000, the bulls retained complete control of the market. The asset was then pushed up. As a result of reports from Elon Musk, the BTC went higher and rose by more than $ 3,000 in one.

After a short retreat, the bulls drove the asset north again a few hours ago, reaching just under $ 33,000. It became its highest price limit since July 15.

From the beginning of the week, the altcoins also went through a similar roller coaster. The largest of them, ETH, fell to just over $ 1,700 on Monday. However, this also reacted well and added more than $ 400 in value in the following days. Earlier today, it recorded an 11-day high of almost $ 2,100.

Billionaire Thomas Peterffy admits that he invested in cryptocurrencies

Thomas Peterffy, founder and chairman of the board of Interactive Brokers, revealed that he had personally purchased several cryptocurrencies. In addition, the billionaire said his company’s clients are showing a growing demand for digital asset services.

Although Thomas Peterffy said he was still skeptical about the long-term future of this asset class, he noted that there was a chance that it would become a globally dominant currency.

Peterffy’s words meant a change of heart, as he had previously argued that BTC must stay away from the “real economy.” On the other hand, the billionaire, known as the “father of high-speed trafficking,” expressed the view that cryptocurrencies are a great idea, but only if governments and officials allow them to trade and use freely.

The Bank of India plans to introduce a digital rupee

India plans to introduce digital currency in the country in several phases, said the Vice Governor of the Indian Reserve Bank Sri T Rabi Sankar at a webinar organized by the Vidhi Center for Legal Policy in Delhi.

The central bank is working on a “phrase implementation strategy” and is still considering the basics of digital currency, including whether it should be a retail or wholesale, distributed or centralized ledger, token or account-based and issued by the central bank or commercial banks.

The bank must also update the laws to adapt to the new digital form of legal tender. This includes the sections in the RBI Act concerning the denominations and forms of banknotes, as well as articles in the Coins Act, the Foreign Exchange Management Act and the Information Technology Act.

Electricity bills in China could be paid in digital yuan

According to the local financial media Economic Information Daily, the application of a digital wallet in yuan, launched by the Bank of China, will include a function to pay electricity bills, designed by the state-owned company State Grid.

Users will be able to pay electricity bills through the digital yuan application directly and, unlike other third-party mobile payment applications, will not have to associate the payment with a bank card.

The new feature will be tested in nine cities and regions, including the new area of ​​Xiong’an, Suzhou, Chengdu, Shanghai, Xi’an, Dalian, Changsha and Qingdao, and at the Beijing Winter Olympics in 2022.
