CEO CME: People use Bitcoin just like they use gold
Terry Duffy, CEO of CME Group, revealed during the interview that people are now “using bitcoins similar to using gold” as an asset to a safe haven. In an interview with CNBC’s Closing Bell, Duffy compared the flagship cryptocurrency with precious metal, which has been considered a safe haven for thousands of years. While the price of BTC is rising, stock markets are shaken. Duffy’s words responded to the question about BTC’s price performance this year, as the cryptocurrency increased by 30% in January. This is the best performance in the first month of the year since 2013. Some analysts believe that the price of BTC has risen due to the outbreak of coronavirus, which has shaken the markets, especially in Asia.

If you want to provide crypto services in Germany, you need to register
In his last instruction issued in January, the German regulator stated that companies that already deposit digital assets in the form of custody services to Germans will not be penalized for not having a license.
