Bitcoin tumbles 22%, Former Ripple advisor might get tenure

Bitcoin tumbles 22%, Former Ripple advisor might get tenure

Hello everyone, this is our weekly crypto digest. Here you’ll find everything from a weekly market summary and top news to the hottest new listings on exchanges, and even memes to cheer you up. To get these updates as soon as we post them, follow us on Twitter.

Weekly Market Summary

Bitcoin, the world’s largest cryptocurrency by market cap, has lost over 22% of its value since setting an all-time high of over $41,900 in December last year.

The asset currently trades at $32,700 after a sell-off in the wee hours this morning. As a result of this price action, Bitcoin’s market cap now sits at $600 billion compared to over $750 billion in December—representing a mammoth $150 billion loss in value.

Despite the falling prices, analytics firm Glassnode suggests investors are purchasing large amounts of Bitcoin, instead of selling the asset and taking profits. 

On-chain data from the past month shows over 270,000 Bitcoin was withdrawn from crypto exchanges to addresses marked as “HODLers,” or crypto wallets that are known to stack large amounts of Bitcoin instead of selling/spending it.

According to the Wall Street Journal, a former member of Ripple’s board of directors is likely to become the next Comptroller of the Currency.

Comptroller of the Currency serves as the administrator of the federal banking system, and is the chief officer of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC). The WSJ described it as one of the most powerful banking regulators:

“The comptroller oversees hundreds of bank supervisors stationed inside large U.S. financial firms, making the person in the job one of the most powerful bank regulators.”

The official decision is yet to be finalized. But if approved, Michael Barr would be the second appointee with a cryptocurrency experience on the position.

Updating the base

Coinbase, a bellwether for bull runs, is updating its infrastructure to prevent outages during periods of heavy volatility. It will also focus on updating its customer support. Coinbase is expected to go public later this year, and has already filed its draft S-1 statement with the Securities and Exchanges Commission.

Out of the ether

Ether (ETH), the native cryptocurrency of the Ethereum blockchain network, hit a fresh high of $1,439.33, $19 up from a previous record level of $1,420 in 2018. The currency has broken  above 1,000% since the initial public sale of ETH in 2015. It has a different value proposition from bitcoin and offers full programmability, developer-friendly community, and is the home of such crypto trends  as ICOs and DeFi.
