Morning, Coinheads.

The market is all over the place. If regulators could stop threatening bans and rate rises, and if Russia could kindly knock it off with the war games, not to mention an end to this gee dee pandemic, we’d hazard a guess that might go some way towards smoothing out the fairly constant volatility that has characterised this, our year of 2022.

Bitcoin is down, Dogecoin is down, Ethereum is up, along with Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash, while Newscrypto, native token of an all-in-one educational trading ecosystem, is 50% lower than it was last year. And Binance coin is bouncing back after the US$1.7m NFT hack on OpenSea.

SafeMoon has already surpassed one million wallet downloads, but we expect uptake is likely to slow, given it stands accused of running a celebrity pump-and-dump in a class action lawsuit. Good thing the US has just appointed its first Crypto Cop to monitor and address this kind of fraud malarkey.

Meanwhile, it seems that Metaverse tokens are performing better than actual Metaverse related tech stocks. ORLY?

I really can't say
