Highlighting what went right, and what went wrong, in this week’s crypto news analysis.
All eyes are either on the market or the G20 as BTC volatility hits the headlines for the first time in 2019. Some will say this is it, the institutions are coming, some will say they’ve been here all along, and some will say it’s just another bubble. But there are some fundamental differences to this rally. Notably, facebook’s got cards on the table with Libra (even if you begrudgingly admit Libra is/isn’t crypto), JPM and Goldman are openly discussing their blockchain strategies, and some prominent regulators are rolling out useful frameworks for regulation. Without wanting to count one's chickens before they hatch, it’s all looking rather promising.
On a more local note, we became aware last week that some of our customers were being targeted with phishing emails, purportedly from Copper staff. We are taking measures to investigate the source of these spoof domains. The Copper Platform, and all of our products, remain totally secure.
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.
