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

Blink and you miss a lot in this industry. Here’s what happened last week that should be on your radar:

Apple said no to crypto, but do you trust them? Paypal said sayonara to Libra, which begs the question, are they thinking they can do the same thing better and more quickly? Coinbase Pro is about to increase their fees, shortly after Clearbank integration reinstates UK customers access to the faster payments scheme on the platform. They also launched the crypto rating council, amid some controversy, along with Kraken, Bitrex, Anchorage, and others. Galaxy Digital is getting busy on Bakkt (maybe the only ones?). And Grams are coming…. stay tuned for more on that one later today

Below is 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.
