Bitcoin's market capitalization now stands at over $73 billion. 

As Goldman Sachs' chart analyst Sheba Jafari claimed, the Bitcoin price may grow to almost $5,000 but after that it is likely that the correction will take place and the price will drop to about $2,000. Thus, seems like that the things have been going in accordance with the plan, so far.

Japanese online broker Monex Group Inc. announced the launch of a cryptocurrency trading platform focused on institutional investors. The new platform should start work in 2019 under the brand of Coincheck, Finance Magnates reports.

A license to provide services in all US states Monex hopes to get within a year. As the president of Monex TradeStation, John Bartleman, said, Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Ethereum and, possibly, XRP will be available on the platform.

In April, Monex acquired Coincheck, the victim of a hack, for $ 33.6 million. After the purchase, Monex representatives said that the cryptocurrency business plays a key role in the company's further development. The fact that Monex intends to expand its business to the US market became known in May.

It is noteworthy that earlier this month, Monex Group Inc. became one of the investors of the American stock exchange cryptocurrency derivatives ErisX. According to John Bartleman, ErisX will also serve institutional investors in the United States after regulatory approval
