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

ETFs are inching closer to a reality, meanwhile the SEC is sharpening its teeth towards misleading ICOs. Last week we published our monthly roundup of regulator moves, which topped 99 by our count, including some assurances from the SEC and FCA that there would be more guidance (at least on taxation issues) before the end of the year.

The markets have been holding relatively steady (for crypto, anyway) over the last two months as Bitcoin reached its 10th birthday. But it doesn’t seem there is much agreement on price prediction for the next year, or even week. Now try factoring in Brexit!

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.
