This week in crypto we’ve seen a partial crypto mining ban in New York and a JPMorgan crypto wallet trademark, as well as the latest on the FTX fallout. Ready thrusters!

She did so this week, marking a two-year suspension of growth for crypto firms.
No. 2 – JPMorgan Awarded Crypto Wallet Trademark

The trademark, which was filed back in July 2020 and was approved last week, appears to be a wide-ranging offering, including crypto payment processing, virtual currency transfer and exchange, and other financial services.
It marks another example of the bank coming full circle on crypto, and shows that their confidence in crypto was carefully timed.
No.1 – FTX Lawsuits (and Movie Deals) Roll In
This week we saw two more FTX lawsuits land, taking the total to three so far, with potential criminal lawsuits also ahead for Bankman-Fried and the other members of his polyamorous hippie commune.
Not only this, but the FTX story is also set to be retold in a book, Amazon TV series and possibly a film too, with deals being fervently done to secure the rights to the story. Just please don’t show a sex scene…
