From a look at Bitcoin’s big returns to a hiring spree at Ripple, here’s a look at some of the stories breaking in the world of crypto.
Crypto data analytics platform DataLight shows just how much a $100 investment in a newly listed coin is worth today. Bitcoin tops the list at $1.3 million, followed by Ethereum at $68,305 and Dash at $39,610.
