Bitcoin had a volatile week, starting off with an all-time high price of around $58,300 on August 28th before dipping to $45,600 over the weekend. The dip was likely due to profit taking and fears of a potential Chinese crackdown on cryptocurrencies. However, FOMO (fear of missing out) quickly drove the price back up to $50,000.

In other news, Coinbase became a public company via direct listing on April 14. The IPO valued the company at $250 billion, 20 times higher than its last private funding round in 2018. This makes Coinbase the most valuable cryptocurrency company in the world.
