Needless to say, the market was at its best in recent times last week. A Bitcoin bullish run that was tagged suspicious by connoisseurs catapulted altcoins along with remarkable double-digit gains.

Bitcoin’s market cap surpassed $92 billion at midnight Sunday GMT+2. It is selling above $5200 at the time of filing this report early morning on Monday.

Moreover, the market cap of all Cryptocurrencies was almost $185 billion. It is still not clear if the long depression that began in December 2019 is over since most of the experts are still sitting on the fence.

The Scepticism emanates from the fact that altcoins are leading BTC in terms of percentage gains in the bull run. But some lonely voices think that institutional money has found its way into Crypto and the regulations springing around the globe is doing the trick.

Industry News

Google data indicates that Google searches for Bitcoin has tripled since the upward trend that began on Tuesday. The details show that only Tuesday accounted for the rise.

On Wednesday the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) published regulatory guidelines for token issuers. It outlined determinants that token issuers require to examine before assessing if their offerings pass as securities.

Binance, the world’s second-biggest Crypto exchange on Thursday announced it would open its doors in Singapore at the end of April. Changpeng Zhao, CEO stated it would be a fiat-to-crypto platform.
