■ General Cryptocurrency News:
Fidelity Digital Assets brought its digital asset trading and custody solutions
services live with a select group of clients last week.
Invesco is partnering with London-based Elwood Asset management, an
investment firm specializing in digital assets, to launch a blockchain
exchange-traded fund (ETF) today on the London Stock Exchange. The
product is called the “Invesco Elwood Global Blockchain UCITS ETF”.
Online banking and trading group Swissquote announced it is launching a
crypto custody service later this month. The custody solution, which will be
available to retail and institutional customers, offers a proprietary solution for
managing cryptocurrency private keys.
Facebook is expanding its blockchain-related staff with its career website now
listing 20 job openings as it also contemplates a token that will be used across
the company’s media platforms including Facebook, Instagram and
WhatsApp.
According to research from tech conglomerate Cisco, college campuses are
the second-largest crypto miners across industry verticals. The researchers
investigated crypto mining activities across a variety of industries, finding that
university campuses are ranked the second-biggest miners of digital currency
at 22 percent, with the energy and utilities sector in first at around 34 percent.
BTC News:
An unconfirmed report regarding Starbucks’ partnership with digital asset
platform Bakkt revealed that the company will allegedly accept BTC as payment.
Starbucks is a founding partner in Bakkt, but initially denied rumors that it would
accept BTC for payment. Now, an unnamed source has said that the chain will
accept BTC through Bakkt’s software, but it will instantly convert the crypto into
fiat, so that Starbucks will never actually hold any cryptocurrency.
Jack Dorsey, the CEO of both Twitter and Square, hinted in a podcast interview
last week that he has been spending $10,000 per week on BTC.
Trading History YTD:
So far 2019 has seen sharp price movements, both up and down, broken up by
periods of stability as the price of BTC tries to find direction. Almost two and a
half months into the year, the price of BTC is slightly higher than where it started
on January 1st.
Current Environment:
Last week was a positive week for BTC as its price was stable to higher for most
of the week.
Volumes were higher week-over-week, averaging 2.5 million coins per day.

Ethereum has the most developers working on its base protocol of all
cryptocurrencies, not counting community project developers, according to a
report by crypto asset management firm Electric Capital. According to the
report, the company fingerprinted over 20,000 code repositories and 16 million

developers each month.
Vitalik Buterin, the creator of the Ethereum blockchain project, has proposed
increasing user fees on the network for the purposes of supporting developers
with sustainable funding.

Over 80 percent of the total circulating supply of ETH is held by 7,572
addresses, claims a report released by digital asset research company Delphi
Digital.
Trading History YTD:
After a positive start to the year, ETH declined for most of January before
gaining positive momentum in February. Accounting for both movements up
and down, the price of ETH is slightly below where it started the year.

After a sharp upward price movement earlier in the week last week, the price
of ETH declined for the balance of the week but remained up on the week both
in terms of USD and BTC.

■ DASH News:
Dash Text, which enables consumers to easily spend Dash via SMS
texting, is now testing a Telegram integration with a WhatsApp integration
on the horizon.
CrowdNode, a Dash Masternode sharing company will now allow
fractional Dash masternode holders to vote with the traditional “Yes, No,
Abstain”, but also with “Do Nothing” and “Delegate”. This development will
help shift treasury influence from large Dash holders to smaller Dash
holders that are unable to acquire the 1,000 Dash for a full Masternode.
CrowdNode currently operates 17 Masternodes, and thus, the delegate
option has the potential to give even more influence to other individuals on
the CrowdNode platform.
■ Trading History YTD:
Dash has traded like other major cryptocurrencies in 2019, with the price
trending generally down in January followed by positive price performance
in February, resulting in the currency now trading up on the year.
■ Current Environment:
The price of Dash was stable to positive last week, resulting in the coin
trading up on the week in USD term and particularly in terms of BTC,
which moved in the opposite direction at the end of the week.
Volumes for the week averaged 2.5 million coins per day.
