Bitcoin analysis for 14/11/2017

Every success of Bitcoin is related to the predictions of its fall. Over the past few years, many experts have longed for the end of Bitcoin for various reasons, from the lack of real value to the financial pyramid. This time, the indication fell on the character of the cryptocurrency, who was always considered her greatest asset - anonymity. Fredric Oudea, CEO of SocGen Bank, is the next person who tries to predict the future of Bitcoin. In his opinion, the possibility of anonymous use of BTC is a source of reinforcement of criminal activity. Bitcoin can be used, for example, for money laundering or terrorist financing. According to Oudea, this would be a sufficient argument for governments to deny cryptocurrency. At a Web Summit conference, Oudea said: "The benefit (of using BTC) is to provide anonymity to those who make the transaction. I do not see the future when I see how governments fight money laundering, tax evasion, terrorist financing. The anonymity of the transaction is a problem that will exert pressure on Bitcoin "

What is causing most doubts in CEO SocGen's statement is that Bitcoin is not really anonymous. In the context of the most popular cryptanalyst, there is talk of "pseudo-anonymity". Unless your personal address is closely related to a particular person, all your transactions can be monitored. Criminals could not simply, with impunity, shed money. Therefore the words of Oudea'i are abusive.

Let's now take a look at the Bitcoin technical picture at the H4 time frame. From the low at the level of $5,534 the market has managed to retrace 50% and currently is trading close to the level of $6,695, just above the weekly pivot. This move might be labeled as the wave B or a part of the wave B correction, so there is another leg down coming up shortly. The key resistance remains at the level of $6,982.
