- Spot bitcoin fell 1.45 percent to $9,501 as of 0900 UTC as the U.S. dollar rebounded from its seven-day plunge.
- The cryptocurrency’s downside move surfaced ahead of a fresh U.S. trade and unemployment data release at 0830 ET on Thursday.
- The U.S. stock market, which remains positively correlated to bitcoin, also dived as investors booked short-term profits.
Bitcoin continued to tail the moves in the global stock market this Thursday.
The benchmark cryptocurrency fell by 1.45 percent to $9,501 minutes after 0900 UTC. The downside swing mainly came as a part of a short-term technical correction, wherein traders booked their intraday profits near the top of $9,689. So it seems, certain macro factors also kept traders from holding Bitcoin.

Certain stores have refused to close down despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic sweeping the world. Amongst those companies are game retailers like GameStop and their UK counterpart GAME. GAME seems determined to follow GameStop example, and their behaviour shouldn’t be forgotten when all of this is over. At a time of crisis like the current Coronavirus Pandemic, the best can be bought out in people. It can also really bring out the worst in people, and by people I mean companies. GAME is a UK-based game retailer, similar to GameStop. In an effort to become more like GameStop, GAME has refused to close down during the coronavirus pandemic. Even worse than that, they’re asking more and more of their staff with no increase in wages. Another day, another company whose management should be headed for the guillotine. Even GAME’s own employees are calling for the shop to finally shut down. | Source: Twitter Game Seems Determined to Become as Vile as GameStop After all of the awful things they did lately, GameStop did eventually close down.

After March’s 50% crash, there are many reasons to be bearish on Bitcoin.

But, according to a prominent macro investor, a trend is transpiring that “could not be more bullish for Bitcoin.” Related Reading: Crypto Tidbits: Bitcoin At $7,000, FATF Regulation, Coinbase Backs Ethereum DeFi Bitcoin to Be Boosted by This Factor According to Dan Tapiero — the founder of DTAP Capital and Gold Bullion International and a Bitcoin bull — the recent price action in the investment-grade corporate bond market has been “truly incredible, maybe even once in a lifetime.” He looked to the below chart, which shows that an index of corporate bonds has almost reached all-time highs after a severe 20% correction, which is a result of the Federal Reserve buying bonds to the tune of dozens of billions of dollars a week to stabilize the economy.

Global crypto exchange Huobi Group could be back in the U.S. market as early as this month, a group vice president told CoinDesk. Such a move would come five months after Huobi’s San Francisco-based over-the-counter (OTC) brokerage, Huobi US (HBUS), abruptly halted operations, citing unspecified regulatory roadblocks. At the time, Singapore-based Huobi Group said it would return but did not give a timeframe. Now, the exchange aims to relaunch this business in partnership with a local licensed trading platform, said Ciara Sun, Huobi Group’s vice president of global business. This would allow it to be compliant with regulations at a lower cost, she said. “By working with a fully regulated local partner, we don’t have to apply for licenses to run the businesses from every state,” Sun said. “We will come back as Huobi Group and there will not be a separate legal entity like Huobi US anymore.” According to Sun, Huobi has been in talks with a crypto brokerage about a potential strategic partnership that could involve Huobi acquiring a minority stake. She would not identify the brokerage. Read…Apr 8, 2020

According to a report published on Feb. 17 by Mobile Europe, Deutsche Telekom, T-Mobile US, Telefonica and Orange say the solution vastly reduces the complexity of the current system, and is “production ready.” Simplifying to allow scaling The new solution revamps a process that hasn’t changed in many years and involves drafting, signing and manually implementing agreements for discounted roaming charges. Automating this workflow speeds up and streamlines this process. Use of blockchain means that the terms of the agreement cannot subsequently be altered. New technologies were set to make the existing process even more complex, as Rolf Nafziger, Senior Vice President of Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier, explained: “The inter-operator workflow in roaming has been basically unchanged for the last 20 years. In the near future however, new services […] will drastically increase the complexity of inter-operator discount agreements and respective settlements. This blockchain-based solution is the start of automating sections of our workflow. It will put us…Feb 18, 2020
