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

May was a bumper month for crypto, with Bitcoin jumping over 3k, and Bitcoin SV making what many would call a surprise appearance at the table. The articles we’ve chosen to share this morning highlight the full spectrum of what’s going on in crypto, from the very basics of what it is, to the most recent legal ramifications, and speculation on whether it’s the retail market or institutions who will push decentralisation over the finish line.

Later today we’ll publish our monthly Regulator Roundup. It’s been an especially productive month in the US, with the SEC, CFTC, and many state bodies putting in the long hours trying to determine the best path forward.

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.
