Bitcoin is currently riding towards a three month low and has been sent downward in the past few days by fear surrounding a hack of a small exchange in Korea, along with sentiment from US government that ICOs will be labeled securities moving forward. BTC is the digital father of cryptocurrencies, and altcoins are swift to follow it’s price movements (Often with 10-20% greater amplitude than that of BTC).
While the SEC made their stance clear that initial coin offerings and tokens will be labeled securities(and thus face more stringent regulation), they were also clear that Bitcoin is not a security. BTC will remain a commodity and this is definitely positive news for. China has recently shown signs that the BTC ban may be repealed, which would be a tremendous boost of confidence to the Bitcoin markets. While the ICO environment may be uncertain in the coming months, Bitcoin should see a resurgence in market cap domination as well as price in the months to come. BTC is currently trading at $6,766 on Bittrex, Binance, and Coinbase.
