Though the Kleiman vs Craig Wright ruling only took place on Monday (26 August 2019), we've already seen a ton of sensational media flood social channels.

In light of this, Bitstocks Relationship Managers, Antonio Shillingford and James Coughlan take a look at both sides of the story, and share their informed opinion on the matter.

Bitcoin Core (BTC) has been the dominant cryptocurrency until now. But, what if we told you a shift is at hand? Watch as Bitstocks Relationship Manager, Antonio Shillingford and Bitstocks Investment Associate, Stephen Ierotheou apply the concept of using hashing power to determine the fair value of an asset. The two compare BCH, BTC and BSV in this manner and come to an interesting and promising conclusion... When taking into account the economic impact of the Bitcoin mining reward halving coming up in May 2020, BSV's capacity and application development boom makes it the prime contender as the block reward drops.

Cryptocurrency-based derivatives are about to come under fire by one of the most significant regulating bodies: the UK's Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Bitstocks Relationship Managers, Antonio Shillingford and James Coughlan respond to the FCA's proposed limitations on how crypto-derivatives can be marketed, distributed and sold to "ill-suited" retail investors. Though the flood of crypto-based products' get-rich-quick advertising campaigns pose tremendous risk to uneducated (retail) investors, an outright ban is bound to hamper institutional adoption.

Has the Wild-Wild West of Crypto-based products met its match? All will be revealed when the FCA's final “Guidance on Crypto assets” is published later this summer.
