SEC’s Gary Gesler Announces Tougher Regulation on Cryptocurrencies

In the meantime, as Bitcoin value has skyrocketed by 300%, both amateur and professional investors have started buying and trading crypto, lured by the potential dividends. The market is marred by extreme volatility, and while it becomes “more legitimate” it will also attract the wrong people.
