Despite Bitcoin’s hockey-stick price chart over the last week, hitting $7,500 level, still, the general perception of the digital currency is that it can be largely used for illegal purposes like drug and human trafficking, terrorist financing and others. Now, Vatican City is working with major financial institutions to better understand the use of crypto in human trafficking and ultimately explore ways to stop the illicit activity.
The yellow metal is continuing to trade against the buck at the intersection of large ascending channel and junior rising wedge formations. Although the larger pattern managed to constrain the bullish sentiment for now, but the rising 55-, 100- and 200-hour SMAs as well as ongoing concerns over implementation of the US President Donald Trump's tax plan suggest that such upward movement is going to continue and might actually reach the upper trend-line of another dominant descending channel near the 1,293.00 mark.
China’s financial services sector will be almost entirely open to foreign players in the next five years, China’s deputy finance minister Zhu Guangyao said on Friday.

Millennials often get the blame for ruining traditions and the established order of things, but they may well be on the right path when it comes investing, but now a survey shows they might be responsible for keeping the rally in bitcoin alive.

The study of more than 2,000 people found that 42 per cent of millennials are at least somewhat familiar with bitcoin, compared with 15 per cent among those ages 65 and up.
A Swiss man was handed a suspended prison term of nearly two years and a fine on Thursday for spying on a German tax authority, in a case that has pitted Swiss bank secrecy against Germany’s clampdown on tax evasion.

U.S. companies, from chip giant Qualcomm to aircraft maker Boeing, announced a slew of deals on Thursday during U.S. President Donald Trump's visit to Beijing.

There will almost certainly be no Bitcoin hard fork next week: the main organizers behind the SegWit2x project have "suspended" their efforts. Called SegWit2x, the proposed fork would have increased the blocksize of bitcoin to allow quicker and less costly transaction processing.
