On July 18th, President Trump lacked the support of the U.S. Senate to pass any new measures on healthcare bill, in the U.S. At least, three Republicans along with the Democrat lawmakers have expressed opposition for any changes to the current “Obamacare”.

On August 1st, Bitcoin improvement, proposal, 148 (BIP148), is intended to allow the Bitcoin network to scale more efficiently is scheduled to be activated.
