Switzerland is very open to doing business when it comes to blockchain, crypto and digital assets. One of the leading minds there are CV Labs in Crypto Valley Zug, run by my friend Ralf Glabischnig.
Next Monday, I’m really looking forward to attending his event, The Crypto Valley’s Top 50 Round Table, where the founders and executives of the 50 most influential companies in Crypto Valley come together to provoke meaningful discussion.
It will also provide a forum for me to finally share details on an exciting stealth project that I’m advising. Look out for next week’s spotlight!
Crypto at a glance
Bitcoin continues to look strong as alt markets stall as bullish news floods in from all directions. The leading cryptocurrency by market capitalization hit a high of $ 38,334.33 yesterday, despite falling to just over $ 37,000 this morning. Can it ride the wave for the weekend?
Yesterday’s optimistic news has been brought to you with the kind permission of the Basel Committee, the arbiter of international banking standards. They have now officially recognized Bitcoin as an asset class and proposed rules for banks to hold the cryptocurrency that puts them in the highest risk category. Bitcoin saw an immediate jump in price of $ 2,000 and rose five percent in less than two hours.
The Basel Committee’s recognition is an important milestone for Bitcoin in the world of traditional finance. But that wasn’t the only foray into Bitcoin’s traditional financial world yesterday as two big players announced their move into the room.
Victory Capital, which manages nearly $ 160 billion in assets, announced it will launch a private fund for accredited investors that will track the Nasdaq Crypto Index (NCI). State Street, the second oldest bank in the US, also announced plans to launch a “multi-asset platform” that will support cryptocurrency trading, citing rapidly increasing customer demand.
It beats a bullish week of news for Bitcoin, which bounced back well from Tuesday’s $ 31,000. Weekends haven’t been kind to the crypto markets lately, but will that be different?
Bitcoin seems a bit on its own right now, with stagnation in the rankings allowing the market leader to regain some of the dominance it recently lost. It currently makes up nearly 45 percent of the market again, with Ethereum changing hands for under $ 2,500 at the time of writing – a four percent drop in the past 24 hours. Cardano (ADA), Binance Coin (BNB) and Dogecoin (DOGE) are all down around four percent at the time of writing. Can you follow Bitcoin’s example again?
