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

First and foremost, Happy New Year! We hope you’ve had a productive year and are optimistic about the next 12 months.

For the past two weeks it seems, in almost every industry and on every news site, the internet has been littered with the annual regurgitation of ‘what happened in 2018’ articles. This is fine if you’re into nostalgia, but if there is one thing to be learned from crypto, it’s that past performance is no indicator of future results.

Instead, let’s focus on what’s happening right now. Where we can make a difference. And where we want to be next week.

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.
