BGB In Another Narrow Range

About two weeks ago we talked about how BGB had been in a tight trading range, then it soared US$0.506853 on May 11, 2023. Once again we’re seeing BGB’s weekly low up by nearly 20% and volume slowing down - signs that you should prepare for another breakout.

There has been a series of events taking place after the release of the BGB White Paper, including the BGB Lotto, BGB Staking, 40% APY BGB pool on Bitget Launchpool, and the BGB exclusive trading and referral promotion. BGB holders will soon be able to receive new tokens for FREE - the event is set to begin on May 23, 2023 and share 80,000 BGB in our BGB Super Airdrop Campaign!

U.S. Debt Ceiling Lift Talks: The Clock Is Ticking

The ‘hard deadline' affirmed more than once by the Treasury Secretary, June 01, is also considered to be the earliest deadline for a bipartisan agreement on raising the U.S. debt ceiling. Yields on the short-term T-bills keep increasing, which is a reflection of low confidence in these government-issued bonds. In other words, the probability that the U.S. will default on its debt obligations has never been higher; that for sure has motivated the President and the Speaker of the House to resume their discussions on the matter later on today, after Biden is back from the G7 Hiroshima Summit.

Ripple has had a winning week. The firm explicitly defines themselves as a crypto solution provider for enterprises and institutions, meaning their products are built to meet the demand of big players as well as nations. On May 18, Ripple announced the launch of their new Ripple CBDC Platform, a ‘solution’ produced exclusively for instant settlements and payments using central bank digital currencies (CBDCs). Together with this launch, Ripple is also selected by Hong Kong authorities to support the settlement of the e-HKD in their pilot program. Regarding their battle with the SEC, the SEC's request to keep the Hinman documents sealed was denied by a Federal Judge. This could be considered a win for Ripple, as this document contains statements by the former SEC Director William Hinman about the nature of Bitcoin and Ether (‘not securities'), whereas the SEC filed lawsuit against Ripple in 2020 for the ‘unregistered security offering' of XRP.

On the side note, the SEC seems to be targeting another cryptocurrency, this time Filecoin. Grayscale Investments says that in the review they received for their Grayscale Filecoin Trust registration, SEC staff concludes that ‘the Trust's underlying asset, FIL, meets the definition of a security under the federal securities laws’.
