This week saw many crypto-related developments: FTT rallied after Binance invested in FTX, Ripple raised USD 200 million, Tron’s Justin Sun sparked a Twitter storm by publicly committing USD 1 million to Greta Thunberg’s cause, the Cryptoworld wondered if BSV is about to sabotage itself, Cardano price was bearish despite the testnet activation, and Chainalysis said that at least BTC 20,000 and ETH 790,000 might still be dumped on the market by the criminals from PlusToken. Two days later, PlusToken moved ETH 789,525. Speaking of ETH, Ethereum Foundation selling USD 100 million worth of ETH raised transparency questions, Ethereum will have another hard fork in January to delay its Ice Age, and DappRadar claims that ETH is now leading the field in blockchain gaming, ahead of EOS and Tron.
The CEO of Bitmain rival MicroBT is facing embezzlement charges in China, the latest court filing claims Craig Wright is not a victim in that process, and South Korean prosecutors busted an apparent USD 18.4 million multi-level pyramid scheme centering around a fake token. In the meantime, while TD Ameritrade-backed ErisX launches Bitcoin futures for small investors and Ping An subsidiary and Ripple-friendly SBI are working on bringing blockchain to banks, Fidelity is set to expand into Europe with a new UK-based branch. EU on its part asked citizens to help create crypto regulations. Meanwhile, in Japan, kids are proving to be too smart for crypto scammers.
