Bitcoin ‘Bart Simpson’ returns as BTC price dives 7% in hours: Bitcoin (BTC) price action failed to crack $32,000 and headed back to square one, sparking $60 million of long liquidations in the process. How much longer will we stay in the current price range? What is it going to take for Bitcoin to break out from here?
Bad day for Binance with SEC investigation and Reuters exposé: The United States Securities and Exchange Commission is reportedly suspicious that Binance, the world’s largest crypto exchange, sold unlicensed securities via its BNB initial coin offering, and the news agency Reuters has tallied up some old cases.
