Группа разработки финансовых мер (FATF — The Financial Action Task Force) намерена ввести новые правила для работы криптовалютных площадок во всем мире. Финальное решение по этому вопросу будет принято в ближайшее время.
Новые международные стандарты потребуют от криптобирж собирать и предоставлять информацию о том, куда и кому отправляется цифровая валюта.
Это будет покруче, чем раздражающая многих криптоэнтузиастов процедура KYC (знай своего клиента). Помимо проверки и подтверждения личности своих собственных клиентов, биржам и другим площадкам придется пересылать информацию о клиентах и их сделках друг другу при переводе средств. Точно так, как сейчас это делают банки. В США такой подход известен как «правило путешествия».

The previous few months when Bitcoin price was progressing and heading up charts have changed for the time of flat trading with BTC drifting between $7,500 and $8,000. This has been going for a couple of weeks now.
Crypto bulls have been looking around for signs of further spike and as Forbes writes, they seem to have found them.
As the Forbes author writes, the Bitcoin community is in for BTC reward halving soon. When it happens, the award for miners for creating new BTC blocks will decrease from 12.5 BTC to 6.25 BTC.
This event is less than a year away, still, some crypto analysts believe that it may get BTC price back to its ATHs achieved in 2017, when Bitcoin was worth $19,000.
Brian Kelly, a crypto investment fund executive told CNBC in a recent interview at the Fast Money show that the major factor for Bitcoin to surge is institutional and retailer participation, as well as adoption.
As an example, he mentioned Fidelity which is about to start crypto trading for their institutional customers.
However, he mentioned the Bitcoin supply cut – the halving – which is about to occur next year. This is when, Kelly stated, big price surges happen. Previous halving took place in 2016 and then the BTC price surge to $19,000 followed.
Next halving event is going to occur in 2020. And this has to be the major catalyst for a massive bull run.

With Julian Assange We Stand #FreeAssange
Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks leader, has been indicted on 17 new counts of violating the Espionage Act for his role in publishing classified military and diplomatic documents in 2010, the Justice Department announced on Thursday — a novel case that raises profound First Amendment issues.
The new charges were part of a superseding indictment obtained by the Trump administration that significantly expanded the legal case against Mr. Assange, who is already fighting extradition proceedings in London based on an earlier hacking-related countbrought by federal prosecutors in Northern Virginia.
The secret documents that Assange published were provided by the former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning, who was convicted at a court-martial trial in 2013 of leaking the records. “Assange, WikiLeaks affiliates and Manning shared the common objective to subvert lawful restrictions on classified information and to publicly disseminate it,” the indictment said.
The Justice Department’s decision to pursue Espionage Act charges signals a dramatic escalation under President Trump to crack down on leaks of classified information and aims squarely at First Amendment protections for journalists. Most recently, law enforcement officials charged a former intelligence analyst with giving classified documents to The Intercept, a national security news website.
Legal scholars believe that prosecuting reporters over their work would violate the First Amendment, but the prospect has not yet been tested in court because the government had never charged a journalist under the Espionage Act.
Though he is not a conventional journalist, much of what Assange does at WikiLeaks is difficult to distinguish in a legally meaningful way from what traditional news organizations like The New York Times do: seek and publish information that officials want to be secret, including classified national security matters, and take steps to protect the confidentiality of sources.
