Here is what you need to know on Thursday 1, September

Chart of the day: YFI/USD 4-hour chart



The majority of the market has managed to recover from the dip to $349 billion total market capitalization to a high of $379 billion currently. Most of this was due to altcoins, especially Ethereum, gaining a lot of traction over Bitcoin which has been losing a lot of market dominance, currently at 57% only. 

Justin Sun, known for his controversial takes on crypto and ridiculous promotions has stated that a ‘very important and bold decision’ will happen to the TRON ecosystem in the following days. 



CoinMarketCap has suffered a significant loss after the leadership team leaves. Right after the acquisition from Binance, five executives of CMC including the CEO are now out. The platform faced a lot of criticism after the acquisition due to a new ranking algorithm that seemed to benefit Binance. 

Quote of the day

Bitcoin, and the ideas behind it, will be a disrupter to the traditional notions of currency. In the end, currency will be better for it.

– Edmund Moy, 38th Director of the United States Mint
