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

A relatively quiet week, with accompanying price stability (for crypto) across the boards. A few big announcements, like this one from Germany; interspersed with the odd keynote at the start of the 2019 conference season, like this one from the SEC’s ‘crypto mom’.

If you didn’t see our Regulator Roundup last week, now is your chance to get caught up on more than 130 updates. You don’t have to read them all, we’ve got jump links to your favourite regions ; )

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.
