At the time of writing, BTC/USD lost 2.68 percent to 4,061.10. Meanwhile, the near-term support is seen at $3,600.00 and resistance at $4,400.00.

Market Update: According to a report from CryptpGlobe, Japan’s Financial Services Agency (FSA), the country’s financial watchdog is said to introduce a new regulatory framework for Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), owing largely to the wide array of scams happening in the digital currency world. Local sources also said that business owners who issue their own digital currencies must first register with the FSA.

ETH/USD: In line with Bitcoin, Ethereum also immersed itself in the bloodbath, after suffering a humongous 48.63 percent in the month of November.

Meanwhile, the near-term support is seen at $95.00 and resistance at $130.00.

EOS/USD: Nothing different, the EOS, also showed up red signals amid investors’ confusion to find a proper direction in the digital currency market. However, the degree of loss was comparatively lower than its peers. At the time of writing, EOS/USD traded 1.11 percent lower at $2.8430. Meanwhile, the near-term support is seen at $2.40 and resistance at $3.05.
