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

The bloodletting which began with the BCH hard fork 11 days ago seems to be continuing, with only a minor glimmer of hope in the last 24 hours that it might have actually bottomed out. But there have been some good news stories over the last week, too.

For starters, the blockchain subsidiary of the Gibraltar Stock Exchange has won approval for a licence from the island’s regulator. This will allow it to operate as an institutional-grade token sale platform.

And DARPA, the (in)famous US Defense research lab, will host a two day workshop on blockchain tech in February. If DARPA is involved today, you can bet blockchain will be part of the future. They famously created google maps 30 years before google even existed!
