Bitcoin will probably not reach $20,000 this year if a key technical price level isn't reclaimed soon. Bitcoin continues to be in correction mode with its price dropping below $17,600 on Dec. 11, the lowest level since November.

SEC Commissioner: authorities must abandon excessive regulation of crypto market
Regulators need to find acceptable options in order to finally accept the principle of personal freedom of citizens, embodied in the very concept of digital currencies. Also, the authorities must abandon the idea of excessive control over the crypto industry, said SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce. In one of her recent speeches, she noted that the digital asset market and the sector of decentralized finance creates certain difficulties for the authorities. Regulators, however, should not restrict industry development with excessive regulatory requirements. “If we were instead to steamroll the technology’s liberty-enhancing features under the weight of regulation, we would lose a lot of the power of the new technology to afford opportunities to people whose autonomy has previously been curbed by, for example, limited access to the traditional financial system, geographic location, social standing, or subjection to a repressive government,” Peirce said.
Estonia has revoked licenses from more than 1,000 crypto companies
The Estonian government revoked the licenses of more than 1,000 cryptocurrency companies. This happened amid increasing control over the digital asset industry and countering money laundering. As the representative of the State Commission on Combating Money Laundering noted, "monitoring and regulation" of crypto service operators "constantly needs increased attention." He said that in the past year, many projects have received licenses to work with crypto projects. And amendments to the country's legislation, which came into force in 2020, have tightened the licensing of operators of services related to digital assets. “In 2020, the Financial Intelligence Agency revoked more than 1000 licenses to operate from companies dealing with crypto assets. At the same time, there are still around 400 companies offering services in this area in Estonia. The connection of many of these companies with Estonia is minimal, and the clientele of some companies is from distant countries, ” the Ministry of Finance said.

The Massachusetts authorities have filed a lawsuit against the fintech company Robinhood, which has developed a popular securities trading application. The company was accused of prompting inexperienced users to take risky trades and failed to protect customers from technical glitches in the application. Robinhood, according to the US state, violated new local law. It obliges investment brokers to prioritize their activities in the interests of clients.

They won approval despite the company's stated policy of screening clients for experience before allowing them to buy and sell options. The company now faces fines.

Analytics make predictions concerning trial SEC against Ripple
The regulator believes that the XRP company should be responsible for the unregistered issue of securities in the guise of tokens that the project has been selling for 7 years. To remind you, Ripple has raised about $1.3 billion. According to Adam Cochran, a partner of Cinneamhain Ventures, the trial court will take years, though Ripple Company does not have many chances, like EOS or kin do. While seeking the arguments Cochran says that Ripple is completely falling under the jurisdiction of the SEC. The defendants are Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse and his companion Chris Larsen. Nonetheless, XRP assets are still trading on global markets. To remind you, the SEC recognized tokens as unregistered securities. Andrew Tugarin, leading partner of GMT Legal, has no doubt that the proceedings will most likely not be in favor of Ripple. «It seems that a large fine will be imposed on the project itself and its founders personally» - analytic said.
An outside opinion: it is high time for market correction
The total share of TOP-1 BTC on the crypto market for the first time this year has reached 69.3%. Mikhail Karkhalev, the analyst of the crypto platform Currency.com believes that the key driver of BTC's market share growth was a decrease in Ripple's capitalization and its future trial. Over the past 7 days the token price has decreased by 54%. The fall comes amid SEC accusations against Ripple and the refusal of several companies to work with XRP at once. «In my opinion, there are no prerequisites for a decrease in the market share of BTC. The main cryptocurrency, in contrast to the same Ethereum (ETH), is held near the price maximum, while Ethereum has lost positions. The market is ready for a slight correction to $ 21-20 thousand for BTC. The price may reach these levels in the first half of January, after which it will move back to growth in search of new highs.
Over the week, the flow of funds to the cryptocurrency market reached $1.3 billion
The inflow of funds into investment products based on cryptocurrencies last week reached a record $1.31 billion, according to the digital asset management company CoinShares. “We believe investors have been very price conscious this year due to the speed at which prices in bitcoin achieved new highs,” said investment strategist James Butterfill. CoinShares analysts believe that the new high may be related to the recent drop in the price of BTC. It is likely that investors took advantage of the decline in the exchange rate in order to buy cryptocurrency at a profitable price.
Lloyd Blankfein: BTC prevents authorities from controlling the financial system
According to Lloyd Blankfei, the former CEO of Goldman Sachs, the authorities are obliged to tighten regulation of the cryptocurrency industry due to the rapid growth of this direction. The businessman pointed to the "pseudo-anonymity" of digital assets, which makes bitcoin a convenient tool for financing illegal activities. “You don't know whether or not you're paying the North Koreans or Al Qaeda or the Revolutionary Guard. If I were a regulator, I would be kind of hyperventilating at the success of it at the moment and I'd be arming myself to deal with it, ”Blankfein said. In his opinion, the duty of regulators is to limit the freedom that digital coins provide. At the same time, Blankfein doubts that after the tightening of control and, as a result, the loss of anonymity, bitcoin will continue to be in great demand.
The number of active BTC addresses reached 22.3 million in January
During the first month of this year, the number of unique active BTC addresses amounted to 22.3 million. The growth occurred against the background of an increase in the activity of traders and the price of bitcoin, which exceeded the $42,000 mark. “In January, more than 22.3 million unique addresses were active in the network sending or receiving $BTC – the highest monthly number in Bitcoin's history to date,” Glassnode said. According to the company, January became a record for the number of active Bitcoin addresses. The previous record was reached in December 2017. The number of active addresses was 21 million. Since 2017, the number of active BTC addresses has not dropped below 10 million per month.
Economists criticized the idea of issuing government cryptocurrencies
Economists Peter Bofinger and Thomas Hass believe that government tokens issued as a medium of exchange may not compete with private banks. Experts believe that regulators need to focus on the concept of supranational cryptocurrencies that will become a store of value in the international system. Economists admit that the best type of government cryptocurrency is one that regulators are unlikely to think about for fear of rejecting intermediation. It will be a government-owned cryptocurrency designed not to facilitate payments, but to save the value. “The demand for a store-of-value CBDC would come from firms and large investors with bank deposits of more than €100,000, which would be bailed-in in the case of a bank restructuring. From the user perspective, this demand would depend on the interest rate for such deposits. Central banks could auction store-of-value deposits which would give them a perfect control over their amount,” the researchers noted.
SEC accused three leaders of the Bitcoiin2Gen crypto project of defrauding investors
The SEC has accused three leaders of the closed crypto project Bitcoiin2Gen of defrauding investors. In 2018, the company held an ICO for $11.4 million, with Steven Seagal as the face of its advertising campaign. The SEC believes that the creator of Bitcoiin2Gen Christian Krstic and the promoter of the project John DeMarr violated securities laws during the ICO, and the company's partner Robin Enos "was engaged in aiding and abetting." The defendants promised to distribute to 460 investors a B2G token, which, according to the SEC, never existed. The scammers promised a “mined” and “traded” digital token.
Institutional investors prefer ETH
According to CoinShares, the inflow of institutional investors' funds into the crypto market in the first week of the second month of the year amounted to $245 million. 80% of this volume was invested in ethereum. Analysts believe large investors are starting to diversify their crypto portfolios. They transfer part of the funds from BTC to ethereum, and other coins. At the same time, nothing indicates profit-taking. Investors buy and save cryptocurrency. “We think that investors looking for diversification are becoming more comfortable investing in ethereum. The inflow of funds into bitcoin is gradually decreasing, ” analysts noted.

Brian Brooks: Tesla's investment in bitcoin is awesome news
Former head of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Brian Brooks said the information about Tesla's investment in BTC is exciting news. Although, the ex-official believes, for those who have not previously invested in cryptocurrency, "it looks somewhat alarming". “That's crazy, right? The way inflation works is the more of asset you have the less valuable it is. That would explain why a lot of institutions want to have bitcoin sitting in their treasury because it's a lot more stable source of value over the long haul, potentially, ” Brooks said.
Mastercard to start working with cryptocurrencies in 2021
Already in 2021, Mastercard plans to start working with cryptocurrencies. The specific coins have not yet been named.

Elon Musk speaks out against custodial crypto wallets
Elon Musk believes that it is better for investors not to use the services of crypto wallets, which do not provide their clients with control over private keys. He wrote about this in a Twitter post from the custodian wallet operator FreeWallet, who used Musk's post on Dogecoin to advertise himself. "Your app sucks," wrote the head of Tesla. It turned out that the entrepreneur uses FreeWallet, and his account was automatically blocked by a security algorithm. Musk's account was then unblocked, but the developers of Ledger hardware wallets joined the discussion, taking the opportunity to advertise their decision. "Elon Musk is right, as long as you do not manage your private keys, you do not actually own your cryptocurrency," wrote the representatives of Ledger.
Glassnode believes that "miners have reduced bitcoin sales, and investors are taking profits"
According to the research company Glassnode, miners have begun to accumulate reserves in bitcoins. Long-term investors, on the other hand, are trying to get rid of their assets in order to lock in profits. The Glassnode report says that in January, miners were actively selling almost all of the mined BTC, however, in February, the volume of sales decreased significantly. This could mean that miners are hoping for an increase in the value of bitcoin. “This suggests that miners have either completed adequate sales to cover costs, or could also mean they see Tesla's vote of confidence as fair reason to keep a strong grip on their treasuries," analysts say.
Analysts: 5 services store more than 50% of cryptocurrencies that were obtained illegally
Chainalysis experts concluded that 55% of digital currencies that were obtained fraudulently or with the help of ransomware viruses are laundered through just 5 services. These services use about 270 unique deposit addresses. Analysts believe that the largest processors of illegally obtained crypto coins receive about $25 million a year. Serving such illegal transactions may be their main activity. Experts believe that suppressing the illegal activities of such deposit addresses will help shut down most of the infrastructure that now exists for laundering crypto assets.
