Technical Analysis of ETH/USD for February 4, 2021

Crypto Industry News:

The first part of Swiss blockchain law, covering companies, entered into force on Monday. In September 2020, the country's parliament adopted the country's extended crypto and blockchain regulatory framework.

According to a Swissinfo report, implementing the new regulatory paradigm will help improve the burgeoning Swiss cryptocurrency and blockchain scene. Indeed, industry stakeholders in the country praised the extended financial and corporate reforms contained in the revised legislation passed by parliament in September 2020.

For Hans Kuhn, board member of the digital bank SEBA, blockchain law places Switzerland in the emerging digital economy. According to Kuhn, the regulated issuance of blockchain-based securities indicates that the country is focused on promoting digital innovation.

Also on Monday, Crypto Broker AG announced that it had obtained a license from the Swiss financial market regulator, FINMA. Thanks to this license, the brokerage company, which settled transactions worth more than $ 1 billion last year, can now offer its clients tokenized securities.

Crypto Broker AG is now joining companies such as SEBA and Sygum Bank as a FINMA license holder. As the second part of Swiss blockchain law is due to come into force this summer, companies will seek to gain a significant foothold in the asset exchange market for regulated trading in these cryptocurrencies.

Part two of the Swiss blockchain law will cover significant improvements to the country's financial market infrastructure. This part of the Act on will provide the legal basis for cryptocurrency trading as well as other crypto exchange operations.

Switzerland is now joining Liechtenstein as one of the few countries with a full spectrum cryptography and blockchain legislation that covers all major aspects of the industry. However, unlike the Swiss approach which changed the existing rules to fit the blockchain market, Liechtenstein created a new legal framework for its cryptocurrency and blockchain market.
