    Bitcoin prices off 8% as Mnuchin says Treasury will ratchet up cryptocurrency regulation

    Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Monday afternoon said digital-payment ventures need to be held to the same anti-money laundering, or AML, standards as traditional banks. The official said the Trump administration and the Treasury has "very serious concerns" with the growth of cryptocurrencies, including Facebook Inc.'s ambitious digital-payment network currency known as Libra coin, which has drawn white-hot attention to virtual assets of late. Mnuchin said Treasury was concerned with the speculative nature of assets like bitcoin and its use in illicit activity, including financing terrorism. Mnuchin's briefing on Friday comes after President Donald Trump on Friday, via Twitter, expressed consternation about bitcoin as well as Facebook Inc.'s digital payment venture called Libra coin. Mnuchin's Monday briefing on cryptocurrency regulation also comes a day before Facebook executive Dave Marcus is slated to appear before a Senate committee to discuss Libra. On Friday, Trump tweeted: "I am not a fan of bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies, which are not money, and whose value is highly volatile and based on thin air," he said. Mnuchin reiterated Trump's comments and said that Facebook has "a lot of work to convince us" that it is complying with U.S. bank regulation. On Monday afternoon, bitcoin prices trading on CME Group were off 8.1% at $10,780.

    At the time of writing, Bitcoin (BTC) is trading just above $10,200 after losing 25% of its total value since last week. Although last week I said I expected Bitcoin to consolidate a bit more above $11,400, it seems the market pulled a fast one and BTC went further down to the $10,000 region. Will Bitcoin push higher during the week? Or will we see more major retracements back to the $9,000 region and below? As you can see from the chart, BTC has dropped down to its 20-day EMA, where price has bounced slightly. Still, it is quite close to its early July lows.

In an interview with Yahoo Finance, he said: "On balance, it’s a positive because cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin really are in the main stage now, with the Congress, the Fed, the President weighing in." Lee added: “It’s going to force everybody who is not involved — and remember a very small percentage actually cares about crypto and Bitcoin — it’s going to force the other 98% of the world to think about what it means."
