Bitcoin tried to test $10,000 again but fell short as price saw selling  pressure around $9,990 and is also leaning toward the 50 MA in the  daily, while immediate support sits around $9,600 - $9,500 and key  support (50 MA) is around $9,200 - $9,000. A closer look of the  structure can be seen in the 4H chart, showing lower highs formed. A  breakdown from $9,600 - $9,500 is likely to push price to finally test  $9,000 support. Otherwise, BTC maintains its range in the next days.

Global market cap is at $281B, while BTC's market cap is at $176B.

In one of its latest episodes, "The Simpsons" had guest star Jim Parsons of Big Bang Theory explain cryptocurrencies and  how the blockchain works, stating that crypto was "the cash of the  future." The show, which draws an average of 4 million viewers, has a  reputation of predicting the future over the years - from Donald Trump's  presidency to the finale of hit TV series Game of Thrones.

Leaders  at the Bank of Japan (BOJ), Ministry of Finance (MOF), and Financial  Services Agency (FSA) have held a number of meetings to  determine whether the country will adopt a central bank digital currency  (CBDC). The discussions included how the introduction of a CBDC would  impact the world economy and how it would benefit their own local  economy.

Among those in attendance in their latest meeting were  FSA vice minister for international affairs Ryozo Himino, vice minister  of finance for international affairs Yoshiki Takeuchi, and BOJ executive  director for international affairs Shinichi Uchida.

The Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) said in a statement on  Feb. 21, 2020 that it has not regulated Binance ever. According to the  regulator, Binance "is not authorized by the MFSA to operate in the  cryptocurrency sphere and is not subject to regulatory oversight." It  isn't clear if Binance still has an office in Malta as the firm didn't  share details with regard the issue.

The MFSA reiterated the  passing of the Virtual Financial Assets Act of 2018 which states,  Maltese businesses that either traded or offered cryptocurrencies had to  be fully licensed.
