This week has been an eventful week for the cryptocurrency market and Blockchain industry.
It’s been 10 years since the market crash of 2008 and a lot has changed. The development of Bitcoin and the subsequent market is attributed to the Great Recession of 2008.
Despite all the red that the cryptocurrency has seen this week, there have been a lot of good developments across the world that could potentially be really big wins for the cryptocurrency market, community and industry.
Here is what happened this week.

Morgan Stanley, another huge traditional financial institution, is joining the Bitcoin bandwagon with its new Bitcoin Swap product. The product that Morgan Stanley is developing quietly will allow customers to interact with the market indirectly while regulations come into play.
