The cryptocurrency market keeps falling. By the latest reports, almost all cryptocurrencies are 90% down from their historical maximum. The market capitalization is 107B USD while a week ago it reached 130.7B.

Additional pressure is caused by the news from Japan, where the government demands the cryptocurrency exchanges to release the info on their customers, to prevent money laundering and tax evasion. While Japan has fees on cryptocurrency trading, the majority of investors prefers not to report on their income.

G20, during the summit, reviewed the possibility of cryptocurrency regulation by the FATF standard. This question was also raised to prevent money laundering and tax evasion.
