The crypto market slowly fell apart this afternoon as recent repeated attempts to break through $9k have failed. Virtually every Top 50 coin is lower tonight – most down 5-10% or more – except for a few isolated coins.
Bitcoin SV & Cosmos are the only two major coins still in the green. One thing I find pretty humorous is the fact Bitcoin SV is now the number 8 in world rankings behind Binance Coin at number 7. The coins are currently separated by about $400 million in market cap. Funny, because Binance Chief CZ ousted SV from his exchange over extreme pettiness; there’s no other way to say it.

The good news is the adults are coming to the – I wouldn’t say rescue – but they’re coming.
You have Bakkt, also know as the New York Stock Exchange; you have CME, also known as Chicago Mercantile Exchange; you have Fidelity, also known as Fidelity. Let me know when one of those exchanges steps in to pick winners and losers for you. It’d be a first if they do. But don’t worry: it will never happen.
