Bitcoin price prediction for December 27 is bearish, with a drop to $16,600. A cryptocurrency mining pool, BTC.com, and its parent company, BIT Mining Ltd., revealed that the company had been the victim of a cyberattack on December 3 that resulted in the loss of approximately $3 million in assets.
The attacker stole $2.3 million in BIT Mining assets and around $700,000 in BTC.com client assets. The method of the attack has not yet been disclosed by the company. According to the statement, the incident has been reported to the police in Shenzhen, China. Some of BTC.com’s assets were recovered as a result of the investigation.
A mining pool, BTC.com, assists many miners in pooling their computational power on a blockchain network to earn money and collect block rewards. It is a top mining pool that provides multi-currency mining services for virtual currencies such as bitcoin. It is now the seventh-largest mining pool on the bitcoin blockchain, according to data provided by the company.
BIT Mining stated that BTC.com will continue to operate as usual and that “aside from its digital asset services,” its client fund services are unaffected by the hack.
Japan Will Allow Stablecoins in 2023
According to a local news outlet, the Financial Services Agency of Japan will remove the restriction on the domestic use of international stablecoins. It means that Japanese officials are considering lifting the current ban on stablecoins. The changes are included in the new “Revised Payment Services Act,” as previously reported.
The proposed measure will bring back foreign stablecoins, but in a different way. Because of the Japanese stablecoin restriction, authorized banks and mobile money providers were able to create stablecoins.
Under the new regulations, the institutions in charge of stablecoins in Japan will become distributors. It gives local distributors authority over foreign stablecoins rather than the issuer. “Local distributors” refers to national cryptocurrency exchanges in this context. Changes will also limit international stablecoin transfers to $7,500 per transaction.
Despite efforts to repeal the prohibition, stablecoin use will continue to be restricted by anti-money laundering and terrorism financing laws. The Financial Services Agency has already responded to the suggestion to lift the ban on stablecoins in Japan (FSA).
Stablecoins were not available through any of Japan’s 31 cryptocurrency exchanges prior to the planned reforms. Furthermore, given the popularity of stablecoins and the industry leader Bitcoin, the latest headlines may pique the interest of some crypto enthusiasts. As a result, BTC/USD will benefit in the longer run.
The current price of Bitcoin is $16,616, and the 24-hour trading volume is $16 billion. The BTC/USD pair is down 1.5% today, heading toward the $16,500 support zone. CoinMarketCap currently ranks first, with a live market cap of $319 billion. It has a total supply of 21,000,000 BTC coins and a circulating supply of 19,244,981 BTC coins.
On the technical front, Bitcoin has broken through the ascending triangle pattern that held the coin at $16,730. On the downside, Bitcoin’s immediate support is at $16,560. Increased selling pressure could push the downtrend all the way to the $16,300 level; a further bearish break of this level could expose BTC to $15,650.
On the plus side, Bitcoin’s immediate resistance remains at $16,750, and a bullish crossover above $16,750 can expose BTC to $16,920 or $17,000.
