    BTC monthly close matches PlanBs prediction

      Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView followed BTC/USD as it first returned to the $44,000 mark Thursday, then test lower levels before heading even higher.

      While still not tackling resistance at $45,000 and higher, Bitcoin did not disappoint with its end-of-month performance, this almost exactly matching predictions from stock-to-flow model creator PlanB for a second month running.

      With $63,000 now planned for October, expectations were high for Bitcoin to make up for lost ground going into Q4.

      “September was bad. October is great. November is great. December is great,” Cointelegraph contributor Michaël van de Poppe summarized, telling Twitter followers to “buy the f*cking dip.”

      Van de Poppe highlighted historical performance across various months each year, somETHing which Cointelegraph previously noted all but consigned September to be a “boring” 30 days.

      Others, however, were more cautious. In its latest market update, crypto trading firm QCP Capital said that it would remain cautious in its approach to the market as a whole.

      “Overall, we struggle to find any directional conviction amidst the macro and market crosswinds. Our strategy going into Q4 is to remain fairly neutral and nimble,” executives summarized.

      Macro factors at play were Chinas reiteration of its crypto crackdown and two United States issues: legislation and the potential approval of a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF).

      On Friday, a vote on the governments infrastructure bill, originally slated to happen Monday, was again delayed after a shutdown later this month was averted in a separate vote.

    ETHer returns to $3,000

      Altcoins, meanwhile, saw another 24 hours of modest-to-flat moves, again headed by Binance Coin (BNB) on 6% daily gains.

      All of the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization were in the green at the time of writing, however, marking a refreshing contrast to recent action.

      Ether (ETH), the largest altcoin, traded above $3,000 on the back of 3% returns.

    Bitcoin Global Legalization: A survey of countries that accept and reject Bitcoin.

    Since the inception of Bitcoin in 2009 by the unknown founder popularly known as Satoshi Nakamoto, the march for its legalization as well as other cryptocurrencies had continued till this point. While some countries had officially legalized Bitcoin and accepts it as a legal tender, others rather reject and ban it. The rest tend to maintain a neutral approach of tolerating it without either banning nor legalizing it. The major reason for this has been that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies lacks regulation and centralization and hence, beyond the control of the government. However, there is a general vision that given the popularity of Bitcoin itself and other cryptocurrencies, more countries will in no distant time give an official approval and legalization of Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies.
