Last week started on a great note for the cryptocurrency space as several digital assets broke resistance and climbed, attaining new all-time highs. Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Dogecoin were among popular coins that rose during the week.
However, the crypto market suffered a setback as the price of major coins dropped days later. Although there’s no particular evidence suggesting so, some crypto analysts have attributed the crash to the United States Treasury’s proposed action against unnamed “financial institutions,” alleging crypto been used for money laundering. (It should be noted that many think the alleged enforcement is fake news. It has been pointed out that the Department of Justice, not the Treasury, goes after money launderers.)
