We had a relatively quiet week on the market, from a price point of view. The total market capitalization dropped to a low of around $ 206B in the middle of the week, before rising to $ 221.1B today – a total loss of about 2% during the week.

Cryptographic leaders meet with Capital Hill Heavies: More than fifty participants joined a round table hosted by Representative Warren Davidson, R-Ohio, on Tuesday to discuss the future of the cryptocurrency world. A key point was that the burden of regulatory uncertainty would stifle innovation as companies fear to overload resources to commit legal infractions due to a misinterpretation of laws.
In addition, the participants criticized the application of the "Howey Test", a law on 72-year titles, to digital currencies. SEC President Jay Clayton has previously established a firm position that he does not intend to update the "Howey Test" for cryptocurrencies. Mike Lempres, Coinbase's Chief Policy Officer, based in San Francisco, said: "We all want a fair and orderly market, we want the same things that regulators do – it does not have to be done the same way it was done in the past, and we must be open to this.
