  • Earlier this week, the Bitcoin price was bouncing between $50k and $47,900. Sellers pushed the price to a weekly low of $47k on August 31.
  • With the lows came trading volume and price action. Just in two days, at September’s opening, BTC breached $50K. At the moment of writing, Bitcoin has printed a long green candle to $50,900 on the hourly chart, with the highest volume observed this week.

Will Bitcoin crash again from this spike? Metrics suggest not, read on in the next section!

Latest Bitcoin News

  • The most recent Glassnode report suggests that BTC could be repeating the 2013 double top scenario. As of now, it is in the accumulation zone, and the invalidation signal to watch is aggressive spending of old coins.
  • In El Salvador, a survey showed that two thirds of the population actually opposes the Bitcoin Law. Some of them have even taken to the streets on Monday

Altcoin News

  • Solana and Cardano reached new ATHs this week: SOL rallied from $81 to $145.97. Cardano in particular launched smart contracts on testnet, and broke through the $3 mark.
  • Decentralized lending protocol C.R.E.A.M. Finance suffered $18.8 million in losses from a flash loan exploit on August 31. The project team decided to collect 10% of all fees to reimburse the victims.

Business Cryptocurrency News

  • Multiple sources confirm that Binance has long-term plans to go public in the US. The news is especially surprising considering both the challenges of getting listed in the US and a flurry of legal warnings the exchange is receiving these days.
  • The Centre Consortium, run by USDC issuer Circle and Coinbase, announced plans to create a global stablecoin ecosystem. The particular focus would be given to Asian and African markets.

Cryptocurrency News on Adoption

  • Twitter iOS Beta Client reportedly includes an option to pay tips in Bitcoin. The feature has not been introduced to the interface yet but datamined text suggests Strike will enable Lightning Network functionality.
  • Decentralized search engine on Ethereum Presearch will become one of the default options for Android devices in the EU and UK. The decision followed a long legal battle with Google which is supposed to disrupt the monopoly of the tech giant.

Regulation & Politics Cryptocurrency News

  • The US Securities and Exchange Commission is reportedly investigating Uniswap Labs. At the time no convictions or allegations are made but the attorneys will have a deeper look into usage, reward mechanisms and the marketing of the DEX.

Social Media Cryptocurrency News Digest

Video of the Week

We talked about Bitcoin this week in detail but what about altcoins? Leave it to the YouTuber MoneyZG, who suggested top six projects to watch these days.

Cryptocurrency News from Twitter

For anyone vying for hot Ethereum news: Vitalik Buterin held an AMA (of sorts) on Twitter this week. Among the questions asked and answered were his experiences with other Ethereum co-founders, expectations and realities of shipping updates, ecosystem features and more!

Another Hollywood star announced a crypto position this week, and the choice of the first purchase became a subject of a heated debate.

The NFT world is riddled with a mystery of a 100 ETH NFT allegedly made by Banksy… or not? The lot was deleted afterwards, and the same artwork was featured on another token.

Influencer of the Week

The highlight of this week is user Ad_Infinitum: their username could be referring to the tendency of crypto to ‘only go up’. Either way, they provide plenty of commentary on news and market, as well as memes.

This Week on the Market

How is the market this week? At the moment of writing the digest, the general stats are:

  • Total Market Cap: $2,288,627,385,598 (+12.36%);
  • BTC Dominance: 41.8%.

Gainers of the Week

Here are the altcoins that have scored most gains this week (and you can get on ChangeHero):


This about sums up a regular week in the crypto space: healthy but not mind-blowing growth of the market, new adoption milestones. We will have to see what Binance does to secure its listing or if Uniswap Labs gets away from SEC scrutiny.
