Politicians in Korea Unite in Support of Crypto Regulations After High-Profile Murder Case
according to a Bloomberg In a May 18 report, a Korean woman was abducted on March 29 and later murdered in a dispute believed to be related to cryptocurrency-related losses.
The incident adds to a series of scandals involving digital assets, including the collapse of Do Kwon’s Terra Money ecosystem last May.
The recent murder case has reportedly increased pressure on the Korean government to urgently pass the country’s first independent cryptocurrency law, which could receive parliamentary approval later this month.
The proposed law would introduce stricter rules regarding reserve funds, account maintenance, and requiring digital asset companies to purchase insurance as protection against attacks.
These rules will apply to digital currencies such as bitcoin, while government-designated securities will continue to be governed by the existing capital markets law.
The news of this tragic murder case involving the digital asset has had an effect on the bitcoin price.
Pakistan’s Finance Minister: Cryptocurrencies are unlikely to gain legitimacy due to FATF
Minister of State for Finance and Revenue Aisha Ghaus Pasha said that Pakistan is ready to ban cryptocurrency services and has no intention of legalizing cryptocurrency trading.
The decision comes as a requirement of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), which had earlier placed Pakistan on its “grey list” due to inadequate anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing measures.
The ban on cryptocurrencies was one of the conditions set by the FATF to remove Pakistan from the list. The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) and the Ministry of Information and Technology collaborated to draft legislation for this ban.
This tight stance on cryptocurrencies in Pakistan has increased the pressure on the market and limited gains for the leading cryptocurrencies.
Bitcoin It is trading at $27,290, having experienced less than 1% growth on Thursday.
BTC is facing challenges in reclaiming its $30,000 level since last month and is currently hovering around $27,000.
At the moment, bitcoin is facing a key resistance near the $27,500 level, which is acting as a double top pattern for BTC.
If bitcoin manages to break the $27,500 level on multiple time frames, it has the potential to target the next resistances at $27,700 or $28,000.
Further demand for BTC could even propel it above the $28,000 level, with the next resistance likely to be near the $28,300 level.
However, bitcoin is currently struggling to surpass the $27,500 level, which has been reinforced by a double top pattern, a descending trend line, and the formation of a bearish timer and spinning top candlestick below this level.
These indicators suggest potential weakness in the upward trend, with bitcoin potentially trading lower towards $27,000 and $26,800.
Therefore, it is important to monitor the $27,500 level as an important pivot point for bitcoin’s performance today.
