What's happening in crypto?

Read about Bakkt, PnD, UpBit, Coinbase Custody and XRP, and an events round-up.

1. ICE is bringing sexy Bakkt

The Intercontinental Exchange's digital asset platform is big news.

It's really big news indeed, in the bigger picture of crypto.

2. If you don't know who the sucker is, it's the person who's losing their money

Or so they say.

The WSJ has taken a gander into crypto pump and dump groups.

3. XRP's knees are jelly and its heart beats faster

"Coinbase looked at me," it giddily thought to itself. "Coinbase knows I exist!"

Actually, it was Coinbase Custody, the younger and less attractive branch of the Coinbase family tree. But still.

4. What's UpBit?

Squeaky clean, that's what.

So says a continuous series of reports.

5. Crypto events round-up: Big names edition

There are really big names – like Wozniaaaaaaaaak, and Buuuuuteriiiiiin.
