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

It may seem like the market is in a downward spiral following last week’s drops, but there is actually much to be positive about.

For one, the Bank of England, despite being bearish on crypto, is still very engaged with the community, and is a very active member of the UK’s crypto task force. And Japan’s FSA regulator has been busy processing the lengthy applications of 21 exchanges, with final decisions due in two months. Plus, Tim Draper is still bullish on Bitcoin, despite being once bitten by Mt Gox.
