BTC prices and Google

There is always a relation between bitcoin prices and Google searches. It’s difficult to state whether searches lead to more expensive rates or the other way around, yet the connection up to this point has been shocking.

Bitcoin searches on Google, for instance, between June 19 and June 26 have increased by over 158% as indicated by media investigation organization SemRush.

“We also identified that there’s an 80.8% correlation ratio between Google searches and bitcoin price,” from June 19 to June 26, wrote Olga Andrienko, head of global marketing at SEMrush. A 100% positive correlation means that two variables are moving in perfect tandem.

Bitcoin costs BTCUSD, +9.92% this week had been organizing an explanatory ascent toward $14,000, which would have spoken to a generally 40% week after week return on the No. 1 digital currency on the planet, until additions started to crumble late Wednesday.

Most as of late, bitcoin costs were down an agitating 22% on Thursday, or $3,150, to $10,700, as indicated by FactSet information, in view of bitcoin prospects BTCM19, +3.55% costs exchanging on CME Group.

Certainly, regardless of the dive, bitcoin costs are still up about 7.5% on the week and 194% in the year to date.

By correlation, the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, – 0.04% is down 0.6% so far this week, with a year-to-date ascent of almost 14%. The S&P 500 record SPX, +0.38% is on pace for a 0.8% week after week misfortune and a 16.7% addition in the course of recent months, while the Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, +0.73% is on track to shed about 0.8%, with an over 20% increase so far in 2019.

All things considered, the drop for those new to bitcoin’s unpredictability must container regardless of whether the advanced money has been generally rising. Thursday’s decrease speaks to the third-most honed day by day fall for the advantage on record, as per Dow Jones Market Data

Volumes for bitcoin, in any case, are important. A 90-day moving normal of exchanging the computerized cash demonstrates that increases are a long way from the foamy action of 2017 or mid 2018 (see outline underneath). Bitcoin achieved a top in December 2017 at around $20,000 and tumbled to a nadir at $3,194.96, after a year.

CEB Warns against Dealing in Virtual Currencies

The Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) sent a blistering warning to investors and industry members about the dangers of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.

In a statement, on Sunday, the CBE stated that bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are not considered as real currencies in Egypt and therefore may not be considered legal tender susceptible of cancelling debts. The statement also stressed the importance of adhering to Article 206 of the Central Bank and Banking System Law promulgated by Law No 194-2020.

The statement warns against dealing or investing in virtual currencies including cryptocurrencies as they are not recognized by legal entities in Egypt. They are outside the scope of the regulatory framework and are not traded by financial institutions locally. Such cryptocurrencies have been associated with fraudulent activities and attract suspicion of use in illegal and illegitimate financial activities in addition to their high-investment risks related to frequent price fluctuations

According to the Central Bank of Egypt Law No. 194 of 2020, anyone who violates any of the provisions of Article 206 of the Central Bank and Banking System Law is punished by imprisonment or by a fine of not less than one million pounds (around 65,000$) and not exceeding ten million pounds (around 650,000$), or one of these two penalties.

In Egypt it is forbidden to issue any sort of cryptocurrencies or digital money, to trade in them, to promote them, to create or operate crypto trading platforms without obtaining a license from the Board of Directors of the Central Bank in accordance with the rules and procedures that it determines.

Article 206 of the law states

In January 2018, CEB issued it’s first warning against the trading cryptocurrencies, such as bitcoin, due to the extremely high risk associated with such currencies. The Central Bank also asserted that commerce within the Arab Republic of Egypt is confined only to the official paper currencies approved by the Bank.
