US Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said he did not intend to ban cryptocurrencies, but said stablecoins need greater regulatory oversight, CoinDesk reported.

Wall Street ended sharply lower on September 30 and the S&P 500 posted its worst month since the onset of the global health crisis, following a tumultuous month and quarter wracked by concerns over COVID-19, inflation fears and budget wrangling in Washington.
