This week saw personal data and passwords of GateHub wallet users leaked online, as well as discussions about 80,000 Bitcoins stolen from Mt. Gox. We learned that BTC may dip below USD 7K before the halving (and it did), and miners may or may not be capitulating. Meanwhile, Ethereum managed an ‘insane’ number of transfers on its network and the real dapp transaction volume might be several times bigger than thought, several hundred XRP accounts have been linked to “dirty” USD 400 million, BCH was shortly the only top 10 coin in green likely boosted by the launch of a USD 200 million fund, Grin crashed on arguments over Mimblewimble’s privacy model, and multi-collateral Dai went live.
While we’re discussing what regulators may bring next year and in the next decade, now there are more than 6,000 Bitcoin ATMs in the world and the taxman is paying attention. As major exchanges drop on the ‘most trusted’ list, Binance ignored the talk of crypto ban in India and acquired WazirX, the Royal Bank of Canada has no plans to launch a crypto exchange, and Japan won’t be launching a digital yen soon. Meanwhile, Canaan failed to raise USD 100 million, China registered 60% of the world’s blockchain patents, South Korea’s biggest businesses continue to dominate the nation’s blockchain industry, thieves robbed a BTC ATM, and as a solution to all traditional-banking issues, the Cryptoworld votes ‘BTC’.
And now, here is your weekly dose of crypto jokes. Enjoy!

And some admitting.
You remember how happy you were when you bought the dip.
At the end, make sure to smile.
