As the Cryptoverse is trying to guess BTC’s next move, we found out whom to blame for the crash. Meanwhile, ETH went below USD 180 again, Cardano dropped 23% in a week, despite their recent announcements, but on the other hand, while XRP’s down 29% this year, the price jumped up upon the new acquisition news. And yet, a state-owned bank says BTC price is too low. On the other hand, Blackmoon and DSX might be the first exchanges to list Telegram’s Gram token. Also, if you have no wallet for your ether yet, turn your old phone into one.
And while the nature of money may be changing, we found out that legalization and the Taxman are both coming for crypto in Ukraine; Japan could shun crypto investment trust offerings, while six large financial companies established a securities token association; Venezuela is working on an international and domestic payments system that utilizes cryptocurrencies; smart contracts are now legal in Russia; and while Bithumb acquisition deal may be ‘off’, a new crypto payment solution is in the works in Germany after BitPay’s exit. Big news came in securities-not securities news, as EOS’ operator Block.one settled with the SEC, and so did Sia’s developer Nebulous, which may end existential securities risk.
Meanwhile, experts picked 7 misconceptions about BTC and 10 main trends in digital assets this year for your reading pleasure.

That’s why it’s ‘alternative.’
No wonder he’s so tense these days.
We’re good, we’re good, no worries. Do you have light?
Personification at work.
And altcoins are a bunch of 23 yo student loan indebted college grad food service workers who used to dress emo and now live with their parents.

Once in a lifetime!
When you put 2 and 2 together and get a result.
Calling for crypto correctness.

They’re still up there. Waiting.
