Up over 400% since Monday

Coinbase grabbed the headlines away this week as it had it's direct listing which opened at $381, up from $250 reference price and made it more valuable than the ICE exchange.  The price is currently at $325 which is still good for a gain of $75 or 30% from the reference price.  Well actually its good for those that backed the company in pre-funding rounds. You and I might be underwater after buying the open on Wednesday (not so good).

Up over 400% since Monday 

Anyway, for you and I, the REAL crypto play for the week was Dogecoin.   It traded around $0.07 on Monday near the low and traded as high at $0.39 today.  Thirty-two cents? Who cares. However, that $0.32 is the equivalent to a 470% gain on the week (from the actual low to the actual high).   

For what it is worth, it did base near the 50 hour MA, before starting the run higher. ; )  Needless to say, I don't know whether to laugh or cry....

Bitcoin loses altitude after record high earlier in the week

Bitcoin slumps 4% in a drop back below $61,000 The anticipation ahead of Coinbase IPO provided an impetus for Bitcoin to push above $64,000 earlier in the week but the disappointing performance in Coinbase shares have provided little reason for investors to be cheerful in following through on the move.

Turkey announces ban on payments in cryptocurrencies starting from 30 April

Turkey tries to stem confidence issues with the lira After the lira collapse at the end of last month amid Erdogan's tight grip over monetary policy, there has been renewed interest into cryptocurrencies in Turkey. In some sense, many are viewing that as a more 'stable' option as compared to the lira. Hence, why Erdogan & co. are trying to stop this from becoming more of a fad than it already is.
