The Weekly News Roundup, ending 13 March 2022


With Russia/Ukraine events, regulatory activity has gone into hyperdrive.
More institutions are setting up services for clients to custody digital assets, and it’s more important than ever to take custody of your own assets and not leave them on exchanges or in custodial accounts (if you can help it.)

I’ve also added Cryptopotato to the news roll (which I discovered via Brave News.)

In other news, I’m almost done with the new monthly newsletter. I’ll have details on how you can sign up to receive this. Stay tuned.

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

Be well, Everyone.
