Market Trends:

As you’ve heard from us over the weekend dear faithful NDAXers, we are excited to be building this industry with you, here at home in Canada (while raising industry standards worldwide!) Here is the story you most need to hear this week:

  • Crypto adoption is growing.

That’s it. That's the week in review.  

We’ve seen it time and again—it never stopped. Even during the bear market. And now that the bear market is ostensibly over? (Knock on wood!) No exception:

  • At MasterCard, where a new blockchain 'app store’ is launched in beta
  • On Bitcoin’s epic and thunderingly fast scaling and payments solution; Lightning(which hit new ATHs in BTC and $ capacity)
  • In UK Parliament, where a crypto bill is making its way through, and
  • In--of all places--North Carolina’s Senate (we’ll take that too!) and...
  • Instead of coming right out and rejecting large and well-respected institutions’ Bitcoin Spot ETF Applications, now, the SEC is leaking their preferences to the WSJ instead.

The reason no one is saying “the institutions are coming!!” anymore, friends, is because they’re already here.

As of 07/03/2023 12:30 AM EST, values in CAD.
