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

Ripple is understandably the biggest story of the week, with 90% gains already recorded today and no end in sight to the climb. We’ve included a link to the most up to date technical analysis below, but the way XRP is moving right now it will be obsolete before you can even scroll down to it.
