The cryptocurrency market is more or less red across the board this morning with most of the top 100 coins listed by market cap posting 24-hour losses, according to data from CoinMarketCap. Crucially, Bitcoin (BTC) has fallen below its $10,000 support level, after failing to rise above an $11,000 trading price over the past few days. The flagship cryptocurrency is trading for about $9,960 at press time, with a 24-hour loss of around five percent. On CCN crypto analyst Joseph Young writes that despite robust fundamental factors in the market such as the highly anticipated Bakkt platform’s testing, sell pressure may lead to short term volatility.

Despite strong fundamental factors, bitcoin has shown weak short term trend as of recent, which some analysts have indicated that the sell pressure in the market may be too strong for fundamental factors to turn around.

In the near term, analysts expect large volatility in the bitcoin market, opening the possibility of short squeezes.

According to an official document, the government of Iran has put crypto mining on the track to legalization. On Sunday, the government’s economic commission approved a mechanism to facilitate crypto mining despite the practice’s having been illegal in the country in preceding months. Cheap electricity in Iran has contributed to a surge in the amount of illegal mining farms. The country’s Deputy Minister of Energy Homayun Haeri said “a plan to apply the exported electricity rate for mining farms will soon be discussed and voted on by the government ministers”.

Cointelegraph reports that an Ethereum-based real estate bond of security issuance firm Fundament Group has been approved by the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin).

The company’s co-founder, Florian Glatz, explained:

“As the first company to receive approval from the German Financial Market Authority for a blockchain-based real estate bond, we are excited to enter the sales process for the Real Estate Security Token, while already preparing the tokenization of other highly attractive assets.”
