TheCoinRise, with all the regulatory updates, collaborations, and controversies, is back with another daily crypto roundup, full of greenery, for December 7.
December has not been a very profitable month as of now, but the market has seen a lot of greenery today as most of the coins started an uptrend after a huge sell-off yesterday. Bitcoin has been up by around 5% in the last 2 hours and is currently trading around $51,000. We cannot say that the bulls are back until BTC crosses the resistance line given below in the BTC daily chart.
Ethereum, on the other hand, surged its value by 3.3% and is trading at $4,331 at the time of writing. We can, however, not comment on the upward motion until the market breaches certain critical levels.
Polygon (MATIC) and Polkadot (DOT) have been the star of the show by surging themselves extraordinarily.

Japan follows the U.S. in stablecoins regulations
The regulatory bodies in Japan have reportedly been following methods of the U.S. regulator in terms of solidifying regulatory control for stablecoins.
