Share

Welcome back to the Trader Top 9! Wow, what a week it's been with some major market moves and a bombshell tweet from Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong that came on Tuesday. Let's dive in!

9. First, let's rewind to last Friday, when the Wall Street Journal broke a story on regulatory trouble for Uniswap.

6. After making some BTC purchases on Monday, El Salvador officially adopted Bitcoin as legal tender on Tuesday, though it got off to a rocky start. MacKenzie Sigalos at CNBC weighed in on just how disruptive this might be for international money transmitters like Western Union.

5. As the big day for El Salvador unfolded, the broad crypto market experienced one of the sharpest corrections - you might call it a flash crash - in months. Many on Crypto Twitter weighed in, though Sam Trabucco at Alameda summarized a movie that he's seen one too many times.

2. Solana (SOL) remains the hottest thing in crypto, outside of perhaps NFTs, up another 50% this week. On Monday, Kyle Samani backed up the assertion that institutions are moving in. And Alex Kruger echoes arguments we've made about Solana's benefits.
