Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple Price Analysis


After waiting for Bitcoin ETF, wall street firms finally bring in products to adopt cryptocurrecnies and bitcoin. Winklevoss twins launch the Gemini dollar, “the world’s first regulated stablecoin.”  Research suggests that Millenials love blockchain. Blockchain association comes up in the US to work on crypto-friendly policies moving forward. US Regulator says Cryptocurrency Regulation Requires A ‘Do No Harm’ Approach. Among exchanges Coinbase, BitGo To Focus On Serving Institutions. Globally, Indian top court to hear RBI-Crypto Case Next Week. In Mining, Another research suggests that Gold Mining consumes more energy than Bitcoin Mining.


The Wall Street Firms patience seems to have paid out waiting for the ETF. Finally, following Goldman Sachs entry to cryptos, 3 more Wallstreet firms entered the crypto industry with their own set of derivative products. A Digital Asset Receipt of Citigroup, a Price Return Swaps of Morgan Stanley and a Non-Deliverable Forward of Bank of America and Merrill Lynch were all introduced this week to meet the demand of institutional investors.

This week, the dynamic duo, Winklevoss Brothers  launched the creatively-named Gemini dollar, “the world’s first regulated stablecoin.” The stablecoin (GUSD) is an, ERC20 token pegged 1:1 to the U.S. dollar with oversight from the New York State Department of Financial Service. Like Tether, an independent accounting firm will confirm each that the USD reserves equal the amount of GUSD.

Unlike Tether, the accounting firm probably exists. In recently conducted research it was concluded that Millenials (or is it Generation Z, now?) are on board the blockchain train. Even with the downturn in the market, collegiate blockchain courses are popular as ever. Blockchain student organizations at Penn, Berkely, and, Cornell all boast 100+ strong memberships, and blockchain courses are in high demand. This continued interest even in the bearest of markets is a strong sign of the adoption to come.

In the US, leading players Coinbase, Protocol Labs, and Circle have teamed up with investors such as Polychain Capital to form the Blockchain Association. The trade association will act as a liaison to policymakers on capital hill, working to ensure crypto-friendly policies moving forward. This looks to be a positive step in removing the haze from the current blockchain regulatory landscape while (hopefully) not stifling innovation. From the US regulators, U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission Chairman J. Christopher Giancarlo averred that when it comes to the oversight of cryptocurrencies, regulators need to avoid inhibiting innovation, yet be vigilant against manipulation. Speaking to CNBC, Giancarlo said, “Like the government earlier adopted a ‘do no harm’ approach towards internet which helped it explode what it today, I’m advocating the same approach to cryptocurrencies and all things having to do with this new digital revolution of markets, and of currencies, and of asset classes,”.

From the corporate and exchanges front US-based cryptocurrency entities Coinbase and BitGo have said that they will continue to facilitate growing demand for Bitcoin from institutional investors by operating as trusted custodians. The idea is to encourage fresh capital in Bitcoin and institutional demand may do it. Globally, Indian Apex court would hear the case on the Indian Central Banks clampdown on cryptos and decide the future of cryptocurrencies in the country.
