The Chamber of Deputies of Brazil, a federal legislative body, has approved a regulatory framework that legalizes the use of cryptocurrencies as a payment method, but the passing of the bill does not make any cryptocurrencies legal tender within the country.
While this makes significant progress for crypto within Brazil, the law still requires the signature of the president of Brazil for it to be enacted.
In addition to allowing crypto as a payment method, the law enables the creation of licenses for crypto exchange platforms and for custody and management of crypto by third parties.
Bitcoin back above $20,000 mark
Srinagar, Sept 09: Bitcoin surged past the USD 20,000 barrier and was eyeing its best day in six weeks on Friday as the US dollar fell broadly and markets found reasons to be cheerful at the end of a dour week, Reuters reported.
Bitcoin, the biggest cryptocurrency by market value, rose more than 7 per cent to USD 20,796, a two-week high. Ether, the second-biggest, rose 5 per cent to also hit a two-week peak at USD 1,717. Bitcoin had been as low as USD 18,540 on Wednesday.
Market participants said there was no particular trigger for the gains beyond a broad upbeat mood in evidence across asset classes on Friday, led by a drop in the safe-haven dollar and a rally in Chinese stocks.
If the cryptocurrencies can hold their gains until Sunday’s close, Bitcoin could log a second weekly rise in a row, and its best week in about a month. read more
