Bitcoin (BTC) Price Prediction: BTC/USD Uptrend Is Stuck below $42,400 as Bitcoin Trades Marginally
Bitcoin (BTC) In a Downward Correction as Bitcoin Trades Marginally – July 31, 2021

According to the price indicator, Bitcoin is at level 71 of the Relative Strength Index period 14. It indicates that Bitcoin has no room to rally on the upside.
Israeli Government Seeks to Trail Crypto Holdings Above $61k
The Israeli government is taking measures to deter tax evasion and close loopholes for would-be money launderers as part of a “war against black capital.” According to a new draft bill published by the Ministry of Finance, cryptocurrency users will be under increased scrutiny. It is now mandatory for cryptos users who have purchased 200,000 Israeli shekels ($61,000) or who holds crypto worth the same amount and above to file a report with the Israeli tax authorities.

In these circumstances, virtual currency is a convenient and effective means of concealing income, accumulating undeclared assets, and money laundering.”
