FinCEN making crypto headlines once again as it wants to amend the already audacious FBAR regulations to include virtual currency as a type of reportable account – in other words, it wants US citizens to report if they have more than $10k in crypto held with foreign entities.

Bittrex has announced they will remove privacy coins Monero, Zcash and DASH on 15Jan, in a move seen as pressure felt from US authorities on lack of KYC & AML.

Traditional markets were mostly closed for New Years.
