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

New York Blockchain Week did not disappoint. There were thousands of meet-ups, hundreds of sessions, and countless announcements, but surely none bigger than the news SWARM has partnered with Copper in an exclusive custody arrangement. You can read more about that below in the Finance Magnates article, or on our site here.

The team at Copper now look ahead to our next big event, which will be held in London in conjunction with AiX Trade and HFM Week. The breakfast briefing will be open only to HFM members, however Copper will have an extremely small number of passes to give away.

In the meantime, stay tuned as Copper will have more announcements, and CEO Dmitry Tokarev will be on the podcast circuit to discuss how our infrastructure is creating the plumbing for financial services 2.0

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.
