Highlighting what went right, and what went wrong, in this week’s crypto news analysis. Some key decisions this week from the SEC regarding BTC ETF applications. But, perhaps echoing the Winkelvoss decision, it seems the denial was not a unanimous finding within SEC ranks. Today they have suggested the decision will be reviewed internally, though giving no timelines or guidelines on what that might entail.

Copper has been hard at work building out more features in the Copper Unlimited storage solution as well as on the Copper Platform. In September we will have some rather exciting announcements to make, especially on the Platform side, proving just how responsive we are to client requests. We may even change our motto to ‘Ask and ye shall receive’.

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.
