The team is back, this week the boys kick things off with Coin Telegraph’s reporting blunder on the Spot BTC ETF that resulted in a BTC price surge of over 8%. We then take stock of TradFi’s potential sentiment shift, New York AG Letitia James suing Gemini, Genesis, and DCG over alleged $1.1bn crypto fraud, and the potential ramifications if GBTC is unable to convert. We then go on to discuss potential unlocks of a Spot BTC ETF, where we’re at with the Alt market, the recent Uniswap Labs fee switch news, as well as BlackRock CEO Larry Fink’s recent commentary on Crypto. The boys close on regulation and take stock of Macro. Enjoy!
