Technical Analysis of BTC/USD for March 16, 2021

Crypto Industry News:

India is likely to pass a law that will make cryptocurrencies illegal in the country. In addition to the fact that trading and mining of cryptocurrencies would be illegal, the new law would also prohibit their possession. However, cryptocurrency investors will be able, without any legal consequences, to realize their profits within six months from the date of entry into force of the new law.

It is unclear whether the law provides for imprisonment for those who fail to comply with the provisions of the law.

While the details remain unknown, a law as passed would represent a huge blow to cryptocurrencies in any major economy. Although digital assets have been banned in China since September 2017, the Chinese can still legally own cryptocurrencies.

Unfortunately for the Indian cryptocurrency industry, commentators expect the bill will eventually pass the legislative process successfully as Prime Minister Narendra Modi's party has the required majority to vote it out.
