The trends she sees for 2021
Merry Christmas to all who celebrate! And Happy Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Solstice, Grand Conjunction, etc., to those honoring other wonderful holidays and celestial events!
We’re off for the holidays this week, but in case you missed it, here’s a bulleted list of the top news stories:
- Data dump of hacked Ledger customer database and after-effects
- Ripple, Chris Larsen and Brad Garlinghouse being sued by the SEC over allegedly selling unregistered securities in a 7-year, $1.3 billion sale
- How the legal status of XRP particularly affects US exchanges, such as Coinbase, set to go public next year
- The President’s Working Group on Financial Market releases a statement on stablecoins, suggesting on-chain KYC for stablecoins, which some crypto players say is unlikely to become law
On Unchained, we have a full breakdown with Jeremy Allaire of Circle and Kristin Smith of the Blockchain Association of the proposed FinCEN rule on crypto wallets, why the process for it is so unusual and hasty, who or what is driving this and how it could affect crypto businesses and users.
And on Unconfirmed, in the first of two AMAs over the holidays, Laura answers questions, including whether Bitcoin will lose its weirdness as it becomes more widely adopted, what black swans she sees on the horizon and what trends she sees for 2021.
