The calendar week 42 was a very wild ride in terms of news related to cryptocurrency.
The first Bitcoin ETF approved by the SEC becomes the second largest of all time. Even if this is just a Futures ETF and not a Spot ETF, this is extremely bullish. Next week on Tuesday the next Bitcoin ETF should get approved.
So probably it's not a coincidence that the total market cap of cryptocurrencies hits a new ATH of 2.6 trillion dollars, despite the news of regulation over the past weeks. In my opinion, regulation is good, if they don't overregulate it.
Walmart started to install 200 Bitcoin ATMs, with plans of 8000. I guess retail will start to buy more Bitcoin.

So check out this news overview, that I've researched for you, to form your own opinion about what is happening right now.
We're living in great times with big opportunities!
