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

A busy week of funding rounds regulatory updates and plenty of coin news.  Thankfully the overall market was relatively stable, at least compared to the weeks previous.

The team at Copper started the week at the HFM European Operational Leaders conference, where CEO Dmitry Tokarev was taking part in a panel discussion. Next week we look forward to the DC Finance conference for family offices interested in blockchain and cryptocurrency investments. Dmitry will again extoll the virtues of secure custody as the cornerstone of any portfolio built around digital assets.

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.
