3.  As Bitcoin is hanging on to $7,200, following a disastrous past 24-hours, the Futures market is celebrating. With the significant drop in the price of the Bitcoin, the increased volatility has spurred the derivatives market, and institutional investors are not holding back. The Chicago Mercantile Exchange [CME] saw their Bitcoin Futures volume soar, following the November 22 price crash. Over 11,500 contracts were traded, with each contract representing 5 BTCs, resulting in the volume soaring past $400 million.

4.   The chairman of the United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), Heath Tarbert said regulators should first fully understand the outcomes and potential risks of digital assets before enforcing their rules. He told "we don’t want to do is take a heavy hand and snuff out innovation altogether" "Given the rapid pace of innovation and the markets supporting it, taking a principles-based approach to regulating digital assets and other fintech products would permit a period of development and observation." he added.

5.  Transactions on the third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap skyrocketed to an all-time high of 3.53 million on Friday, soaring past its previous high of 1.70 million, which was set back in January. The transactions are well ahead of BTC, ETH, BCH and LTC, with Ethereum coming in behind XRP at 794,000 transactions in the last 24 hours. Big data analyst and Forbes contributor Thomas Silkjær, added the XRP Ledger is currently processing roughly 90 transactions per second.

6.  While President Trump has scorched Bitcoin with his anti-crypto remarks, his alma mater, Wharton, the business school of the University of Pennsylvania is offering its first student-organized course on cryptocurrency technology.

7.  Despite the Bitcoin price dropping heavily over the past few days, many in the crypto community remain optimistic. One of crypto analysts is pointing out the high figure of the Fear and Greed Index, claiming that this could be a good sign for Bitcoin. He says that the Fear & Greed Index has surged with fear rising 23 percent. The expert says the big growth of the index is good. This is because as fear grows, greed surges right after it. Major investors tend to follow fear of the market majority and start buying when fear rises.

8.  Singapore-based blockchain firm BCB Blockchain has signed a memorandum of agreement (MoA) with a branch of the Philippines’ Department of Science and Technology (DOST) to support the development of local smart cities. BCB Blockchain contributed $300,000 to support incubators and startup accelerators in the Philippines by signing an MoA with the Philippine Council for Industry, Energy, and Emerging Technology Research and Development. The joint initiative intends to facilitate the development of local startups focused on the creation of smart city projects.

9.  Bitcoin price fluctuations should not be an issue for the holders of the digital currency that could survive a nuclear war. According to early cypherpunk Nick Szabo, Bitcoin could be the most durable digital currency in case of a nuclear war. It takes only one active Bitcoin node to keep the network alive. As Szabo points out, there are 9,000 copies of the full Bitcoin transaction history that are located in 90 countries. If this scenario were to take place, Bitcoin would prove to be more resilient than fiat money that could be easily incinerated.

10.  As the market has seen dramatic jumps, and slow slides, many have remained on the sidelines, waiting to see what happens next. However, recent buying activity has indicated ‘whales,’ are entering into the market. The general understanding is that those who buy such large volumes are likely aware of market forces, and could be timing the bottom. One popular user in the cryptocurrency trading space, cryptodemedici, tweeted whales potentially buying in, while we’re at the bottom.

According to the MAS, plans to extend its remit to crypto derivatives have been spurred by interest from hedge funds and asset managers engaged in the sector.

5.  One of the biggest security breaches in the history of crypto occurred on June 19, 2011. The hacker was able to artificially tank the Bitcoin price to just $0.01 by creating a mammoth-sized ask order. Notably, these coins have been touched since 2011 (the year they were stolen).

7.  Towards the beginning of last month, the United States’ Securities and Exchange Commission [SEC] rejected a Bitcoin Exchange Traded Fund [ETF] proposal put forward by Bitwise Asset Management.

3.  This is something that Hong Kong protesters understood. In June, the volume of peer-to-peer Hong Kong-based bitcoin exchange LocalBitcoins suddenly spiked as protests erupted. The volume hit an all-time high in October as demonstrations escalated. The situation in Iran is much direr than in Hong Kong. Violence, road blockages, and lack of internet access are putting citizens between a rock and a hard place. Protesters can opt out of the financial system while protecting their wealth at the same time by buying bitcoin.

4.  With chaos engulfing the region, cryptocurrencies have emerged as one of the key tools used to fight government surveillance with Bitcoin gaining most traction. HKmap.live, a live web mapping, that supports HK protests for freedom by providing real-time crowd-sourced geolocation data of groups of polices, protesters, deployed tear gas, warning flags and more has also started to accept Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Monero, ZCash, Stellar, XRP, and Nano for donations.

5.  The world’s combined debt will hit $255 trillion by the end of 2019 — equal to $32,500 for each person on the planet or $12.1 million per Bitcoin (BTC). Bitcoin figures reacted with shock to the latest figures from the Institute of International Finance, which this month updated its Global Debt Monitor. Never before has the combined debt of the world been so high. As Bitcoin continues to rise in prominence, efforts have increased to educate consumers about its benefits as money which no authority or single actor can manipulate.

6.  Encrypted email service, ProtonMail, is not cashing in Bitcoin payments made for its services, and apparently “hasn’t for years.” The tweet was in response to a customer who complained that he felt guilty for spending Bitcoin on a ProtonMail invoice instead of holding or “hodling” it for the long-term. While the option to pay for a premium ProtonMail account in BTC is not obvious for new account holders, it is possible for existing email customers, even those using the free option who wish to upgrade.

7.  Roelof Botha alleges the Bank of America provided “absolutely no explanation” for its decision to close his bank account in 30 days. Then, as now, attention is focused on the ability of trusted centralized entities to control others’ money.

8.  Fundstrat’s Tom Lee believes Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies will hit major price valuations in the same manner that the tech behemoths did. Lee argued that cryptocurrencies “are network value assets” — and share this with the FAANG (Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, and Google) stocks since their public listing. Lee said that Fundstrat estimates that roughly half a million people own and use Bitcoin so that you would need to hit a million users to get a $25,000 valuation.

9.  Chris Burniske, the partner at New York-based venture capital firm Placeholder, elaborates how cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, and Ethereum specifically should be used as collateral, rather than as a medium of exchange. Several influencers from the industry are hoping to better the use cases of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies so that they could be used as means of exchange. Burniske went on to elaborate on how Bitcoin is mostly viewed as a store of value and people want to hold assets with disinflationary or deflationary supplies.

1.  The head of research at Fundstrat Tomas Lee details why it is absolutely necessary for Bitcoin to hit $150,000 before the SEC greenlights Bitcoin ETFs. He said that it is necessary for the Bitcoin price to hit $150,000 before the SEC gives a BTC ETF launch a green light. The current volume of the crypto market is too small, he says, stating that $200 bln is not enough to get ETFs launched. Tom Lee thinks that Bitcoin has to be worth at least $150,000 to cope with a daily demand on an ETF.

2.  Neil Bush, son of former US President George H. W. Bush, was paid $300,000 by Ruja Ignatova for attending a meeting related to her fraudulent cryptocurrency known as OneCoin, according to law360.

8.  The director of the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), Kenneth Blanco, has recently said that the country is looking for a way to introduce more strict enforcements on several crypto-related types of businesses.
