Bitcoin has inched up this morning, springing back over $58,000 for the first time since Monday. It’s currently trading at $58,364, an increase of around three per cent in the last day.
Other major cryptocurrencies are also seeing positive price action. Ethereum is currently changing hands for just over $4,300, up just over one per cent. Though other leading cryptocurrencies, including Solana and Cardano, have dropped in value.
The big news this week is the Indian government’s announcement that it will introduce the Cryptocurrency and Regulation of Official Digital Currency Bill 2021 when it convenes at the Winter Session on Monday.
Experts are divided on how far India’s ‘private crypto’ ban will go and whether it will include Bitcoin and Ethereum. Last Thursday, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi called on all democratic nations to work together to regulate cryptocurrency, specifically Bitcoin, to “ensure it does not end up in the wrong hands which can spoil our youth.”
