Crypto News Flash: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Tron, VeChain, Ethereum Classic
From Bitcoin’s market share to a big partnership at VeChain, here’s a look at some of the stories happening in the world of crypto.
Fundstrat analyst Tom Lee says Bitcoin is gradually regaining market share, which should comfort hodlers of the top cryptocurrency by market cap.
“The news that we have seen from the SEC saying Bitcoin’s a commodity, to the potential for an ETF is causing investors to decide that Bitcoin is the best house in a tough market,” Lee told CNBC’s Fast Money.
The creators of a new decentralized exchange protocol say it will allow traders to short positions for Ethereum and ERC20 tokens.
The startup is called dYdX, and recently earned $2 million in seed money from Andreessen Horowitz, Polychain and Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong, among others.
VeChain has partnered with Japan’s biggest telecommunications company, NTT Docomo.
The VeChainThor blockchain will be used to securely track and verify NTT Docomo’s smartphones as they move through the supply chain.
VeChain is chosen for the NTT Docomo 5G Partner Program.https://t.co/ke9T0wxBhe
