Parliamentarian Andrew Griffith recommended amending the measure so that digital currencies and tokens would fall under the purview of the country’s financial regulators.
Stablecoins are a type of cryptocurrency that is tethered to the value of another asset, such as the US dollar or gold, and the draft bill already included provisions to extend existing restrictions to payments-focused stablecoins.
The higher chamber, the House of Lords, will now have the opportunity to vote on the bill before it can officially become law.

The current Bitcoin price is $20,245, and the 24-hour trading volume is $151 billion. Bitcoin has increased by over 4% in the last 24 hours. CoinMarketCap currently ranks first, with a live market cap of $388 billion.
On Wednesday, the BTC/USD pair is trading sharply higher after breaking out of the symmetrical triangle pattern at $19,250. As predicted in the Bitcoin price prediction for October 26th, the BTC/USD has traded bullish, crossing immediate resistance levels at $19,600 and $19,900.
For the time being, it is encountering immediate resistance at $20,430, which is being extended by a triple-top pattern.
The RSI and MACD remain in a buying zone, supporting the possibility of a bullish run; similarly, the 50-day moving average supports buying above the $19,300 level. As a result, a breakout of the triple-top pattern could extend the buying trend to $21,000 or $21,900. However, if the uptrend continues, BTC could reach the $23,000 level.
The current price of Ethereum is $1,485, with a 24-hour trading volume of $31 billion. In the last 24 hours, Ethereum has gained over 10%. CoinMarketCap currently ranks #2, with a live market cap of $181 billion.
On the technical front, the ETH/USD pair is on the rise, having already completed a 38.2% Fibonacci retracement and is now approaching the next resistance level of $1,550, which is extended by a 61.8% Fibo level. On the daily timeframe, ETH closed a bullish engulfing candlestick, signaling a strong uptrend and potentially driving additional buying in Ethereum.
Leading indicators like the RSI and MACD are pointing up. As a result, the chances of a bullish trend continuation above $1,404 remain high. A break above $1,550 may expose the ETH price to $1,650 or $1,785 levels.
With over $2.5 million raised in less than a week, the Dash 2 Trade presale is well on its way to becoming one of the largest token sales of the year. As the sale progressed from stage one to stage two, the increase in D2T price from 0.0476 to 0.05 USDT did not appear to have significantly slowed down the pace of the transaction.
Dash 2 Trade is an Ethereum-based platform that aims to provide a variety of real-time analytics and social trading signals to its users; the total amount raised so far is a huge vote of confidence in the platform.
After the completion of its presale, the company plans to launch its platform in the first quarter of 2019, at which time it anticipates seeing its D2T token listed on various exchanges. You can still participate in Dash 2 Trade presale and can buy D2T tokens for $0.05 USDT.
