Pressure on cryptomixers

The California bitcoin platform Swan Bitcoin has warned users about indefinite blocking for using cryptomixers. 

According to representatives of the platform, banks and depositories have changed their policies based on the new rules of the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network within the US Treasury Department (FinCEN). The agency calls cryptomixers "money laundering centers" and claims that they threaten the national security of the United States.

Migration of Russian users from Binance

According to Wu Blockchain, in October, users from Russia took the first place in the number of visits to the cryptocurrency exchanges Bybit, HTX and Deribit. On Bybit and HTX, the share of visitors from the Russian Federation was 17% of the total, on Deribit — 16%. Binance's Russian customers accounted for 5% of the traffic.

Excessive rally

The rally in the cryptocurrency market looks excessive and may end abruptly after the expected approval of the bitcoin ETF. JPMorgan came to this conclusion.

"It is necessary to be careful because of the high chances of encountering the effect of "buy on rumors/sell on fact" after the news from the SEC," they wrote.
