The Weekly News Roundup, ending 13 February 2022

Lots of adoption, regulation, and Wall Street/investment news, plus a couple video shorts.
Keep stacking sats and doing Dollar-Cost-Averaging buys if you can (or whatever native currency is. =) )

Any comments or suggestions, feel free to reach out – hello @ tinycryptoblog.com

Be well, Everyone.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“I think you’re going to see every brand that you can think of make these [metaverse-related trademark] filings within the next 12 months. I don’t think anyone wants to be the next Blockbuster and just completely ignore a new technology that’s coming.”

Josh Gerben, trademark attorney and founder of Gerben Perrott PLLC
