News of the week
The most important news of the week related to the crypto sector.
1- The US lose the primacy for transactions in BTC
According to a cointelegraph article, the United States of America is reported to have lost primacy for Bitcoin transactions.
In fact, the nation that had been at the top for 5 consecutive years was overtaken by Singapore with 7.48 billion BTC.
This is due to the fact that, these transactions were received in Exchange dealing with derivatives such as BitMEx.
Just the USA, are in the low ranking for minors Exchange in their territory and this penalizes them a lot.
The fact is that the cryptocurrency market is moving out of the US precisely because they do not support the sector.
2- We will soon see China's CDBC
According to the press release of the local newspaper Sina, the Chinese central bank has completed the design of the main layer of its central bank digital currency.

In fact, he stresses that geopolitical risks, problems in trade could affect the European economy.
By creating a digital currency there would be a development that will benefit the whole European economy.
