Highlights:

– Last week, there was a lot of price action led by market uncertainty surrounding the stable coin Tether, which drove Tether price down to as low as 90 cents. Traders sold Tether and bought cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, which temporarily drove Bitcoin price up to $7,400 dollars at one point.
– With generally positive market sentiment, all of the major coins went up during the week. Bitcoin rose 3% to almost $6,500 dollars by the end of the week as average trading volumes increased 12% from the previous week. Ether prices moved up 5% to $205 dollars as trading volumes improved as well.
– Huobi and OKEx, two popular crypto exchanges, announced the listing of four USD-backed stablecoins and will start accepting deposits and withdrawals for them. The stablecoins that were selected by both exchanges are Paxos Standard, TrueUSD, USDCoin and Gemini Dollar.
– Fidelity, one of the largest mutual fund managers in the world, is launching an institutional platform for bitcoin, ethereum and other cryptocurrencies. The platform will be operated by Fidelity Digital Assets which will provide custody solutions, a trading execution platform and advisory services 24/7.
– The SEC announced the launch of the Strategic Hub for Innovation and Financial Technology, or ‘FinHub’ for short. This brand new portal will provide blockchain and fintech companies a more streamlined way to deal with legal and regulatory matters.
– Constantinople, which is Ethereum’s next highly anticipated hard fork, has been postponed until early 2019. The upgrade was initially planned for release in November 2018 but after several bugs were discovered in the testnet code, developers were forced to delay the upgrade to late January or February 2019.

I will say it again: Your sound input is to low! I can not turn volume more up and with the music through the video it is hardly viewable. I really hope you fix this. We can always turn volume down if next time it it to loud. But not it really is to low and to much music through the video
