There aren’t any fundamental reasons for the green day we are seeing as there is no major news that is changing the market’s sentiment, so the recovery is based on the price action and the perceived relative value of the cryptocurrencies.

There is news regarding blockchain adoption and utilisation, as well as governmental relation to crypto.

For instance, Bank of Finland released a paper titled “The Great Illusion of Cryptocurrencies,” written by Aleksi Grym, Adviser on Digitalisation and Head of the Digital Central Bank process in the Financial Stability and Statistics Department. The main point of the paper is to explain how cryptocurrencies fundamental nature “shows how poorly understood the concept of money itself still is today” and how the Internet and social media have “muddled our sense of fact and fiction”.

Meanwhile, Japanese financial regulator the Financial Services Agency (FSA) is considering to change the legal basis for how it regulates cryptocurrency exchanges, as reported by cointelegraph.

The FSA is reportedly considering to regulate crypto exchanges by the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act (FIEA), instead of its current legal foundation, the Payment Services Act. According to Senkai, this means that the exchanges will have stronger customer protections. The FIEA obliges securities companies to manage customer funds and securities, such as stocks, separately from corporate assets.

The Association of Thai Securities Companies (ASCO) is considering establishing a joint cryptocurrency exchange, with plans for several firms to apply together for a crypto exchange license, local news outlet Bangkok Post reports July 2.

Pattera Dilokrungthirapop, ASCO chairperson, told the Bangkok Post that several Thai securities firms will apply for a joint crypto operating license with the Thai Securities and Exchange Commission (Thai SEC) in order to reduce costs and share technologies.

While we are on the topic of exchanges, a major headline that was anticipated for quite some time now is that Coinbase Custody – digital assets custodian solution for institutional investors is now launched, according to an official blog post. They have already been storing over 20 billion dollars worth of crypto for their clients, but the new service will notably be secured through an SEC-compliant and FINRA-member independent broker-dealer, Electronic Transaction Clearing (ETC).



From yesterday’s open at 6376$, the price of Bitcoin has increased by 3.15% and is currently sitting at 6556$. The price went further to 6684$ but has retraced since from the spike.

Looking at the hourly chart we can see that the price found resistance at the 6647$ level from which it has retraced. I am expecting the price to fall back to the 0 Fibonacci retracement levels where it will find the support needed to propel the price higher.
