The past week began with unprecedented drop of bitcoin: on several large exchanges, the price of the crypto currency fell below $ 6,000, provoking another panic sellout.

Many analysts hastened to link the behavior of bitcoin to the collapse of the Dow Jones index, as money from the stock market flowed into the crypto currency.
PayPal received a sensitive hit: after 15 years of cooperation, the world's largest online auction eBay refuses to partner with the payment processing system in favor of the Dutch service Adyen, which integrated bitcoin into its system through a partnership with BitPay. This will allow eBay, as well as companies such as Facebook, Spotify, Uber and other suppliers using the Adyen system, to accept payment in digital currency.

The Japanese national tax agency decided to raise taxes for people earning in digital currencies. And if the tax on income from shares or foreign exchange operations is 20%, profits from operations with crypto-currencies will be taxed from 15 to 55%.

No sooner had the passion for the introduction of the virus for mining on YouTube ceased, as news appeared that hackers of the Minero Monero through the USA, Great Britain and India gossains. More than 4,000 sites were infected with the Monero crypto currency miner, said Scott Helme, an expert on cybersecurity. Initially, he found a miner on the website, owned by the Office of the British Commissioner for Information (ICO). Currently, the code is already disabled and does not endanger user safety.

Also this week, the US Federal Marshals Service successfully sold 3,613 bitcoins, which were confiscated during the investigation of a number of crimes.
The head of the International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde, in an interview with CNN Money, said that the state regulation of crypto-currency is inevitable, and its introduction is only a matter of time. This opinion was expressed. "In this area, we need international regulation and proper management," Lagarde said. Speaking at the World Government Summit in Dubai, she added that in the field of crypto-currency, there are likely to be quite a lot of illegal activity. According to Lagarde, the IMF makes every effort to prevent the use of digital currencies for money laundering or terrorist financing. She stressed that regulators should pay more attention not to the essence of the crypto currency, but to related activities - in particular, to monitor the actions of representatives of the industry and not lose control over it.

According to the agency Europol, three to four billion pounds in Europe laundered through the crypto currency. According to agency director Rob Wainwright, regulators and industrial leaders should work together to solve this problem. He believes that bitcoin grows very quickly, and this should cause concern. Unlike paper money, the crypto currency is not printed by the governments of the countries and banks, nor is it controlled or regulated by them.
The Europol agency also discovered another problem related to the crypto currency. Means from criminal activity turn into bitcoins, are divided into smaller amounts and are transferred to people who are most likely not connected with criminals, but act as "money mules". This category of persons then cashed the bitcoins in fiat money, before returning them again to the criminals. The director of the agency believes that the police also traces the trend when billions received from street drug sales across Europe turn into bitcoins.
