S. Korea: Financial Regulator ‘Sympathizes’ With Demands to End Crypto-Blockchain Regulatory Split
A South Korean blockchain researcher has criticized the government’s approach to regulation of the technology at the 2018 Seoul Financial Forum, local media reported May 29. Addressing the head of South Korean regulator the Financial Supervisory Service (FSS) Lee Geun-woo, Park Sung-joon, head of the Blockchain Research Center at Dongguk University, said adopting different approaches to cryptocurrency and blockchain was futile. One, he argued, cannot exist meaningfully without the other:
“In the digital asset trading market, virtual currency and blockchains can not be separated because they need the appropriate means of payment.”
Lee Geun-woo responded by saying:
“I sympathize with the words of Park Chan-hee, and I will pass on his suggestions to the financial authorities.”

In the last 24 hours, the price of Bitcoin has increased by 5,2% – from 7104$ to 7481$ where it is now.
Looking at the daily chart we can see that the price almost went to the triangle support (blue bold line), but hasn’t interacted with it. Currently, price action is forming a cluster below the baseline support (bold black line), which serves as resistance.
If we zoom into the hourly chart, we can see that the cluster has a form of a rising wedge, which is a bearish sign. If we consider that the baseline support serves as resistance, the most likely scenario would be that the price is heading down from here, probably to the triangle support for a proper test.
Bitcoin is in the buy zone, as indicated by hourly chart technicals.
Oscillators are on buy, and moving averages are on a buy.

Crypto Market Daily News: As I have said yesterday the lows can trigger some buying, and that’s exactly what happened – we are seeing new buying pressure arising in the markets. The question is how powerful are the buyers? Can they push the prices up to prior levels, and then exceed prior highs? I think not. I think that as soon as the price is pushed a bit higher, which would mean a better price for sellers, they are going to start selling again. They did not want to continue selling on the month’s lows, as they were hesitant to make a mistake losing their bitcoin if the prices go higher, and people who were waiting to get into the bandwagon have entered the market. We will see what happens but for now, I am still bearish.
