Highlighting what went right, and what went wrong, in this week’s crypto news analysis.
]The US government may have shut down, but speculation about what the SEC will do with crypto in 2019 certainly hasn’t. Especially since they released a report calling digital assets one of their top six priorities.
While probably unrelated to the report, but definitely related to the government shutdown, it’s looking increasingly unlikely that the Bakkt exchange will hit their January 24th launch date, unless federal employees decide to work this week in some kind of Christmas miracle.
Finally, if you believe crypto price charts, it looks like the bulls are back in town, just in time for the holidays. But don’t hold your breath that this year will end anything like 2017.
