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

The big news from last week continues this morning as the market anticipates the launch of DX Exchange’s Nasdaq powered engine. The Estonian-based group will begin selling tokenised shares through a Cyprus-based subsidiary.

This week we should start to hear more from the SEC and FCA on when their next rounds of guidance will be released.

It’s also notable that while Bakkt raised more than $180m last week, they also postponed the launch of their exchange. It could be they’re waiting to see the outcome of the SEC’s next ETF consultation.

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.
