News of the Day

Canadian crypto exchanges have imposed a CAD $30,000 annual buy limit on altcoins.


Why it matters:

  • Newton and BitBuy, two Canadian crypto exchanges, have introduced a CAD $30,000 annual “buy limit” for certain altcoins to “protect crypto investors”

  • Newton announced the new limit after working with the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) and other regulatory authorities in Ontario, which means Ontario-based users will be subject to a CAD $30,000 “net buy limit” on all crypto coins excluding Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ether (ETH), and Litecoin (LTC)

  • BitBuy also announced similar purchase limits to users who qualify as retail investors

  • Eligible Investors have an increased purchase limit of CAD $100,000, while Accredited Investors are not subject to any purchase limits


Crypto Daily Spotlight

Bitcoin’s price plummets as global markets turn risk-off.


Brief introduction: Bitcoin is a proof-of-work cryptocurrency originally described in a whitepaper authored by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008. Bitcoin has a fixed supply of 21 million tokens and its genesis block was mined on January 3, 2009.


Why it matters:

  • Bitcoin is holding at a range of around $21,000 after slumping for the sixth consecutive day, erasing three weeks of gains

  • The decline started on Friday, coinciding with unexpectedly high inflation data in Germany and indications of the Fed’s hawkishness again with plans to continue rate hikes

  • Bitcoin’s price could revisit the $19,000 range based on BTC technical chart analysis
