Did you notice something new? Crypto, Trader, News. has made a tiny but highly impactful change to our site – and you can see it in our new banner. We’ve expanded our articles to include NEWS that’s happening around the world. Right now, in the United States, the biggest news has been the Trump Impeachment and the back and forth between the House and Senate. England looks on the verge of passing BREXIT, and North Korea is testing more missile capability. What great timing for the CTN team to expand our horizons from cryptocurrency and trading.

Many of our new political pieces may be editorial and opinionated but our writers don’t like to hold back.

With that being said, the Week in Review for posts leading up to December 22, 2019, highlights blockchain, cryptocurrency, trends, and politics.
