From a Bitcoin mutual fund breakthrough to the end of a legal battle for Ripple, here’s a look at some of the stories breaking in the world of crypto.

Bitcoin (BTC)

Canada has just approved the country’s first fully regulated Bitcoin (BTC) mutual fund.

Toronto-based NEO Connect just rolled out its First Block Capital Bitcoin Trust, which allows accredited investors to deposit their capital into retirement and tax savings accounts.

Investors will essentially be able to invest in BTC without actually needing to hold the asset. It’s one of the most talked about ways of driving big institutional money into crypto.

Ethereum (ETH)

Ethereum is approaching a new milestone of 2,000 decentralized apps on the network.

Since its explosive debut late last year, CryptoKitties has held strong and is now the third most popular DApp on Ethereum, according to State of the DApps.

Ripple and XRP

Ripple and R3 Consortium have settled their longstanding legal dispute.

R3 sued Ripple Labs in September of last year, accusing Ripple of violating a purchase agreement. The agreement allegedly allowed R3 to buy 5 billion XRP at a cost of $0.0085 per token before the end of 2019.

The disputed amount has skyrocketed with XRP trading around $.269, at time of writing.

The exact terms of the settlement are confidential.

EOSGO reported that the attacker was able to create thousands of accounts and flood the testnet with billions of tokens.

The Stellar Development Foundation has revealed the winners of the 7th Stellar Build Challenge.

“A total of 1.62M lumens will be awarded across the SBC winners, finalists, semi-finalists, honorable mention and participation categories.
