BTC is trading at an 18-month amid a resurgence of speculation that a spot Bitcoin ETF will soon receive approval. Bloomberg analysts noted the comment period of ETF applications will not resume until Nov. 17, providing an eight-day window in which the SEC can approve applicants.

Nouriel Roubini, a prominent economics and former outspoken crypto critic, has shocked onlookers by announcing plans for a digital token. Roubini's fintech company, Atlas Capital, recently unveiled the Atlas Climate Stablecoin, with the token backed by a portfolio of real-world assets.

And Binance launched a web3 wallet supporting popular services from Binance and DeFi protocols.
