Happy 10th birthday to bitcoin, and Happy Halloween. This is a spooky one for Coinbase competitors, as the company announced Tuesday that it raised $300 million in new funding. Also, if you come across any creative crypto-themed costumes, please send photos my way. (But please, no bitcoin price charts. That’s low-hanging fruit.)
In honor of the midterm elections next week, we have news about blockchain voting possibly expanding to more states as soon as next year. And there is still time to register for our Q4 Crypto Conference Call, which is happening Nov. 7 at 2 p.m. ET. We will be discussing institutional investment, regulatory developments and crypto scaling challenges with Alex Sunnarborg of Tetras Capital.
