BTC/USD: Bitcoin prices recovered across the board during late European session Friday, after suffering heavily yesterday, following slight short-covering. Market participants are awaiting the United States’ Securities and Exchange Commission’s decision on the Bitcoin ETF, due on October 26. At the time of writing, BTC/USD rose 1 percent to $6,317.80, reversing some of its losses seen Thursday. Meanwhile, the near-term support is seen at $6,200.00 and resistance at $6,769.00.

Market Update: According to a report from CryptoGlobe, South Korea’s leading cryptocurrency exchange Bithumb is to sell 38 percent of its ownership stake to Singapore-based blockchain consortium group. The deal is likely to be finalized by December 12 and involves purchasing shares from 10 different Bithumb shareholders.
