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

There were too many top stories last week to highlight just the three below.

In addition to the BitPoint hack, Trump’s notable contributions to the crypto conversation, and possible legislation that would prevent companies like Facebook from becoming financial institutions; it should also be pointed out that Canada passed a law requiring crypto exchanges to register as MSBs, there was the whole Tangle in Taipei thing between Dr. Doom and BitMex's CEO, Binance launched margin trading, and then started to burn their team’s tokens, and Tether accidentally created 5 billion USDT.

Crypto (clearly) never sleeps.
