High Spikes, Higher Jumps, Highest Bulls and 20 Crypto Jokes

In the week of bulls, bitcoin not only touched the USD 20K level, but it shot right past it, and towards USD 23K, and over it. It’s much appreciated (pun intended). As more people are interested in buying BTC and ETH than selling them, Bitcoin bulls and bears listed the reasons why they think the price will rise or drop by 2030, MassMutual's bitcoin purchase might attract fresh billions to the number one crypto, and exchanges reportedly sent more bitcoin transfers worth USD 1m or more in 2020. Meanwhile, ETH 2.0 will have another question to answer eventually - and it's about taxes. An attacker stole more than USD 8.2m from the founder of Nexus Mutual, and after Ledger, the scammers are targeting Trezor users. Also, PayPal invested in Paxos, while a massive Google outage showed why decentralization is better.

In the meantime, Coinbase confirmed its IPO preparations, the FCA launched a program for registering crypto companies waiting to obtain approval permits, the ECB once again opened the door to some form of private-sector collaboration as it "intensifies" its work on the digital euro, Sberbank urged the Russian Central Bank to reconsider their digital ruble issuance plans, and Venezuelans used a blockchain-powered platform in an unofficial anti-Maduro referendum. While a Chinese state-run media outlet surprised the Cryptoverse with bold predictions on BTC's future, the mainstream media all over the globe once again went gaga for crypto. SDX Head of Business told us that several Swiss banks are already 'ready to go' upon the crypto gateway launch, an Ukrainian oligarch had reportedly launched a crypto mining operation at a troubled US steel processing factory, Latin America’s most prestigious university will add a course that reportedly covers crypto and blockchain, and Megan Thee Stallion offered her 5m followers a USD 1m bitcoin giveaway through a Cash App partnership.
