Technical Analysis of ETH/USD for May 25, 2020:

Crypto Industry News:

According to an announcement from the Banque de France, France became the first country to successfully try the digital euro operating on Blockchain after calling for new technologies to support such progress.

The bank claims that on May 14, it tested the sale of securities for central bank digital currencies (CBDC), signaling the launch of more detailed testing. Although the bank's announcement was not very detailed, it indicated that the current pilot program focused on wholesale rather than retail for the digital euro. Retail CBDC would be open to ordinary consumers through Bitcoin or Apple Pay. The latest pilot issue of securities in exchange for the digital euro was based on the software received after the March 27 call for proposals. According to today's announcement, the bank will devote the next few weeks to conducting similar tests for other applications received under the same initiative.

Banque de France is particularly active in the development of the digital euro. By the time Great Britain leaves, France will become the second largest economy in the euro area after Germany.
