Market Update

After Facebook, Canadian regulators are now pressing Google to ban all advertising for binary options, cryptocurrencies, and initial coin offerings (ICOs).
In South Korea, the cryptocurrency exchange Coinpia suspended all trading and taking fiat deposits citing the exchange’s incapability to incorporate the new customer verification system as recommended by the authorities.
But most of the banks are still very skeptic about the cryptocurrencies. In a recent speech, General Manager of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), Agustín Carstens, called Bitcoin a bubble, a Ponzi scheme, and also a disaster.


As the market rebounds, the traders are gaining trust on cryptocurrencies again. Many coins bounced with good gains, but to reach the previous levels, the market needs to move like this for quite sometime.
