For all blockchain entrepreneurs, Investors and users can provide a basis for grasping the development trends and opportunities of the blockchain.
The global cryptocurrency market began to stagnate or even retreat last week. Today, it is only 69 days before the third halving of Bitcoin, but Bitcoin has fallen from above 10,000 USD to below 9,000 USD, which is far from the expected halving market. Far away, where do investors and miners go from here? Ethereum's ProgPoW upgrade has also made the community talk, and some even think that this upgrade will tear the Ethereum community. Last week, the blockchain industry completed a number of major financings, such as the blockchain security company CoolBitX's $ 16.75 million financing, Revolut's $ 500 million financing and Chengdu Chainan's new round of financing. As for the central bank's digital currency, new news has been announced in China, the UK, Canada, and Japan.

I. Policy and supervision
Cryptocurrency regulation seems to have become one of the important tasks of global regulators in 2020, especially with the constant development of stablecoins (especially Libra). In addition, FATF's new rules for money laundering are coming into effect, and global regulators are adjusting to comply with relevant regulations, including increasing cryptocurrency anti-money laundering regulations. Another important thing is that the Bitcoin ETF was once again unexpectedly rejected by the SEC. Although expected, the cryptocurrency market still responded and expanded its decline.
