There are holidays this week, so investor activity remained reduced. Long-term pressure on the market is exerted by the actions of Chinese and American authorities. In China, a consistent struggle continues with mining, which is very common in the country. Chinese miners, under pressure from the state, began to reduce mining capacities. In particular, the authorities in Sichuan province, which is popular among mining companies, demanded that the leadership of local hydropower plants reduce or even stop the supply of electricity for these purposes. In the United States, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is pending a trial against Telegram, which is trying to launch its Gram digital token. The regulator believes that the ICO conducted by Telegram was illegal. On January 2, the SEC asked judges to oblige the company to disclose how investor funds were spent over the past two years. Providing this information may give the court additional arguments to prohibit the digital Telegram project.

From the news of cryptocurrencies, it is worth noting the fork of the Ethereum network called Muir Glacier, which, as planned, occurred on Thursday. The update postponed the difficulty bomb by 4 million blocks, and the reward for the mined block remained at the same level of 2 ETH. At the beginning of the week, the IOTA blockchain malfunctioned, as a result of which users could not complete transactions with their assets for 24 hours.
At the beginning of the new year, there were some forecasts of the state of the cryptocurrency market for 2020.

And the Australian entrepreneur Craig Wright, who had previously proclaimed himself the creator of Bitcoin, noted that this currency could no longer reach its historic highs in the region of 20K dollars. Next week, the cryptocurrency market may stabilize or continue a moderately downward movement.
