by Editorial Team

Bitcoin above $7,000! Some bears didn't think we'd be seeing this day so soon. In fact, one of my favorite twitter accounts has become BitMex Rekt, which does a hilarious job of "zapping" liquidated positions. In the news this week we have the Coinbase announcement for future announcements, the legitimization of Dogecoin and an extra does of bearish ETH news from our friends at Tetras Capital.
