The cryptocurrency market in the United States has faced immense regulatory pressure following the FTX and Terra Luna collapse.Earlier last year, the Biden administration issued an executive order to ensure the responsible development of digital assets.
In the executive order, the Biden administration directed the respective government agencies, including the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), to clamp down on predatory crypto projects to protect investors.
Ripple vs SEC lawsuit still ongoing, Gary Gensler and his team have intensified the scrutiny on DeFi projects, particularly those that offer staking programs.Additionally, the United States regulators have gone after the stablecoins market, arguing that they are unregistered securities.
As a result, crypto projects in the United States have begun looking for other markets to get registered to ensure long-term growth prospects.Meanwhile, whale traders have been recorded offloading Circle’s USDC, with on-chain data showing increased Bitcoin purchases.
[#Bitcoin]has launched to a 6-month high, surprising the [#bearish]trader sentiment.With prices jumping above $24.2k for the first time since Aug.14th, 2022, watch for whale addresses increasing as a sign of increased key stakeholder confidence.
