With regulatory news trickling in from across the globe, causing sheepish investors to head for the hills while most of the community seems more convinced than ever that there are practical, rational reasons for investing in the Cryptocurrency and Digital Asset markets; regardless of how poorly our aging regulatory bodies have misunderstood the technology.
