This Week in Crypto – SOL Surges 25%, BTC Touches $30K Following Ripple’s Win and Rising ETF Hopes

Crypto Market Rallies

This week has been good for many crypto holders following a marketwide rally. After several weeks of slow moves, Bitcoin has risen by 11% over the past seven days to briefly touch $30,000 for the first time since July. The coin currently changes hands for $29,654.

BTC started rallying on Monday after reports made rounds on the Internet that the United States Securities and Exchange Commission had decided not to appeal a court ruling that ordered the review of the regulator’s decision on Grayscale’s Bitcoin spot ETF filing.

The largest and oldest crypto asset saw its value receive another boost on Tuesday when popular news platform Cointelegraph shared fake news that the Securities and Exchange Commission had approved the Bitcoin spot ETF application filed by asset manager BlackRock.

“Interest in Crypto is Growing,” BlackRock CEO Says

While denying Cointelegraph’s claim, BlackRock boss Larry Fink said the rally fueled by the fake news shows a rising interest in cryptocurrencies. Notably, Fink had labeled Bitcoin and altcoins “facilitators of money laundering” in 2017.
