■ General Cryptocurrency News:
Samsung Galaxy S10 leaked images reveal that the device will incorporate
crypto features such as a crypto wallet app. The Galaxy S10 is formally
scheduled to be revealed on February 20, 2019.
Pennsylvania and New Hampshire join Ohio as crypto-friendly states with both
announcing initiatives to make cryptocurrency transactions easier last week.

BTC News:
The CBOE BZX Exchange has withdrawn a proposed rule change that, if
approved, would clear the way for a BTC exchange-traded fund (ETF) backed by
VanEck and SolidX.
The proposal has been “temporarily withdrawn,” according to VanEck’s director
of digital asset strategy, Gabor Gurbacs. “We are actively working with regulators
and major market participants to build appropriate market structure frameworks
for a Bitcoin ETF and digital assets in general” he added.
While the notice itself did not provide a reason for the withdrawal, some
securities lawyers speculated that the ongoing government shutdown would
result in the ETF being denied, as no staffers at the SEC are able to review the
proposed rule change.
Meanwhile, everyday adoption of BTC increases with a growing number of food
delivery services across Europe now accepting the cryptocurrency as payment.
Is Uber Eats next?

■ DASH News:
Dash Core Group released its long-awaited version 0.13 last week, which

consumers to spend Dash. These decentralized strategies are increasing the

price trending up during the first week of January before dropping sharply in
the second week, stabilizing in the third and then dropping again last

over the weekend. It has stabilized today, trading at US$67 at time of print.
