Welcome to another roundup of everything that happened in crypto this past week.
Twitter never seems to get enough of the media’s attention. If they’re not changing logos to cute doges, they want to integrate stock and crypto trading directly into the app.
This time, the app might be close to achieving this dream—the latter, that is—thanks to a recent partnership with eToro.
If this happens, guess the first crypto that’ll be available on the social media app?
We’re definitely not saying it’s Dogecoin, but you’d want to start tracking some meme coins on your Coinigy account.
Anyway, here’s the main highlight of this past week.
- Twitter partners with eToro to show real-time stock and crypto information
- FTX has recovered $7.3B in assets, will consider rebooting exchange
- Ethereum’s Shapella hard fork executed on mainnet
- Bitcoin price spikes above $31K; is this the start of a bull market?
