Babbitt weekly election 丨 Global crisis triggers bitcoin avalanche, but frequent supervision is good for long-term trends or unchanged

Guide: Blockchain has set off a new industry boom in China. Babbitt's weekly election will review the major events that can change industry trends in the past week from the perspectives of policy supervision, editorial, project ecological implementation, technology progress, platform construction, and investment. Investors and users can provide a basis for grasping the development trends and opportunities of the blockchain.

The international crude oil price fell below US $ 40, the global crisis appeared, and gold rose above US $ 1,700, but the cryptocurrency market failed to hedge and suffered an avalanche. Although cryptocurrencies have plummeted due to unfavorable external factors, the cryptocurrency market has indeed been favorable in terms of regulation last week, especially in countries such as South Korea, India and Germany. South Korea has officially incorporated cryptocurrency transactions into the legal system, and India's Supreme Court has officially declared the central bank's cryptocurrency ban lasting two years illegal. The analysis believes that although the crypto market has been hit hard, in the long run, the current situation will be temporary and it is not expected to have a significant impact on the general trend of cryptocurrencies.

I. Policy and supervision

Last week, India, South Korea, France, the United States, Ukraine and Germany clarified cryptocurrencies, especially South Korea and India. South Korea passed a bill to officially legalize cryptocurrency transactions in South Korea. India's Supreme Court has formally ruled that the Bank of India's ban on banks from providing services to cryptocurrency companies is illegal.
