Crypto Industry News:
Cryptocurrency exchanges and payment processors are now legally recognized as cash service companies in Canada.
On June 1, amendments were made to the Canadian Crime Income Act and the Terrorist Financing Act, which were adopted in June 2019 to remove holes in the existing legal framework.
Canadian crypto companies must now report all transactions in excess of $ 10,000 ($ 7,403) and register and comply with the Canadian Center for Transaction Analysis and Reporting (FINTRAC).
The new regulations will mainly affect cash companies, such as Bitcoin ATM operators, as most Bitcoin related companies have already introduced KYC funds because they were obliged to do so by their banking partners.
Technical Market Outlook:
The ETH/USD breakout above the 261% Fibonacci extension target located at the level of $247.36 was short-lived. The bears has aggressively pushed the prices lower towards the level of $225.85, so now the price is back in the main channel zone. The next target for bears is seen at the level of $217.65 and $215.58. The decreasing momentum supports the short-term bearish outlook for Ethereum.

WR1 – $257.91
Weekly Pivot – $226.70

The larger time frame trend on Ethereum remains down and as long as the level of $288 is not violated, all rallies will be treated as a counter-trend corrective moves. This is why the short positions are now more preferred. The next key technical support is seen at the level of $174.82.
