Good morning Bitcoin: US targets BTC transactions over $250

The current price for one Bitcoin (BTC) is currently $13.037.56. That’s 0.73% more than 24 hours ago. If you want to buy bitcoin for $100 now you will get about 0.0077 BTC for this.

The total market cap is $241,537,982,504.08 with a circulation of 18,526,318 BTC.

The US Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) and the Federal Reserve have focused their arrows on Bitcoin. In a new publication, they announce that they want more information about smaller cryptotransactions than ever before.

Yesterday (Friday, ed.) the two agencies came out with a new press release. In it they state that they want to lower the threshold for international transactions to $250.

The number of active addresses in the Bitcoin network is increasing enormously. It is even going so fast that the old record of December 2017 is starting to come into sight. At that time, Bitcoin’s share price was also at a peak.

The number of active ‚entities‘ rose to 388,697 on Thursday 1k daily Profit. That was the highest point since the end of December 2017, writes data analysis company Glassnode.

It has to be said, however, that as a user, you can generate several private keys and especially several addresses. This number therefore does not represent the number of active users.

Bitcoin’s transaction costs rose last Thursday to their highest level since August. If payments become a little more expensive, we will have to make a comparison with the beginning of 2018, when the Bitcoin mania peaked.

In the last few days, transaction costs have been rising again. At BitInfoCharts you can see how this has been going lately.
