On Tuesday, the Shenzhen branch of the People’s Bank of China plans to “promptly clean up and rectify” 11 firms for supplying unallowed crypto trading activities. The state-owned Shanghai Securities Journal reported.
In Spain, the National Securities Market Commission provided a warning notice for 12 companies. The names are including crypto exchanges Huobi and Bybit, for preparing investment services without being registered with authorities.
And also in South Korea, a crypto exchange subsidiary of Japanese tech giant LINE, is reportedly restricting its services next month, based on a report by Yonhap News.
For now, technical charts show that Bitcoin stays in breakout mode with support around $42,000. The loss of short-term momentum might trigger a short period of profit taking.

Bitcoin’s Decreasing volume

“After the seven-day average real BTC trading volume pushed towards $7 billion last week, we’re now back to $5 billion,”. Arcane Research mentioned it in a Tuesday report.
