Highlighting what went right, and what went wrong, in this week’s crypto news analysis.

It’s been a busy week in the world of crypto: Coinbase is on the acquisition train, along with adding ETC to their stable of coin offerings; John McAfee is eating humble pie following news that the unhackable wallet is, well, hackable; and the mining world is having it’s effect on Nvidia’s share price following a poor Q3 earnings report.

The biggest news this week, though under-reported, was the release of Copper Unlimited.  We have been working on a secure server-less custody solution for six months, so it was with great pleasure we announced earlier this week that it’s market ready. The reviews from beta testers have been overwhelmingly positive, and we’re confident the product will go from strength to strength as it expands the trading and storage opportunities in the Copper Platform. Click here to read our extended blog post giving details of the security and processes behind Copper Unlimited.

Below we have our weekly roundup of industry and coin specific news.  If you’d like to get in touch with us about any of our products or services, we look forward to hearing from you. Just send us a note.
