Crypto News: A Weekly Review

On Tuesday, Bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrencies traded higher as the gloomy mood from the previous week faded.


The majority of alternative cryptocurrencies (altcoins) beat bitcoin, indicating that traders had a higher capacity for risk. Thus, in the last 24 hours, THORChain’s RUNE token has risen 11%, compared to a 2% growth in BTC. Decentralized finance (DeFi) currencies like AAVE and EOS, on the other hand, climbed more than 7% on Tuesday.


The bitcoin Fear & Greed Index increased slightly on Tuesday, indicating that sentiment among crypto traders is improving. Even yet, since BTC trades in a narrow range between $32,000 and $46,000, some investors remain on the fence.


The 10-year Treasury yield jumped to 2.9% on Tuesday, the highest level since late 2018. Over the last 24 hours, gold, a classic safe-haven asset, has traded lower, reflecting a little risk-on tone in global markets. Now let us take a glance at what occurred in the crypto realm.

The Young Turks Embarrass Themselves Trying To Discuss Crypto Regulation


Ana Kasparian and Francesca Fiorentini read a New York Times article and gave the most inane commentary you could imagine. Their thesis is that crypto lobbyists are influencing bills and legislation while at the same time trying to keep the industry deregulated. The Young Turks’ bosses did these women dirty by putting them in this position. It seems like they ordered a hit piece about one of the most complex subjects around without providing any training whatsoever. Do The Young Turks have to train themselves?


Because it seems as confused as the ladies. Cryptocurrency lobbyists are trying to get rid of anti-money laundering (AML) laws. Every exchange in the US has AML procedures in place. The only way to stop money laundering is for financial authorities to do their job and stop it. Common citizens shouldn’t suffer.

Cryptocurrencies represent only a small percentage of the entire digital asset industry as cash is still the go-to medium for illicit payments.


Cryptocurrency exchanges need robust security to prevent, detect and react to attacks. The prime goal of such attacks is to steal customer data and private encryption keys. Cryptocurrency will modernize the global financial system as the Internet did to the exchange of ideas and information.
