from 99Bitcoins.com, and here’s what’s happened
this week in crypto. Our Youtube channel just reached
200,000 subscribers this week, making us one of the top 10
cryptocurrency channels on YouTube. A huge thanks to all of you for supporting us in becoming
the leading information provider when it comes to Bitcoin and cryptocurrency
on the internet. Following last week’s news
of the SEC lawsuit against Ripple, top cryptocurrency exchanges,
including Coinbase, Binance US, Crypto.com and many more have announced
that they will drop XRP trading. Most of these platforms have only removed
XRP from their U.S. markets, though a few have suspended support
internationally. Beyond halting trading for XRP, crypto exchange Bittrex took a step further
and announced its plans to delist Monero, Zcash and Dash. While Bittrex gave no reason
for the removals, exchanges around the world
have been delisting privacy coins to be compliant with KYC regulations.

Data released by The New York Times suggests that Coinbase failed to offer
its female and minority employees equal pay. Coinbase had bigger wage disparities
than either Google or Oracle in 2018, but in an internal letter, the company claims they had already addressed
the pay discrepancies. Elon Musk says that any settlements
he makes on Mars in the future will operate via cryptocurrency. The future society on the Red Planet
will be a democratic one that will do business
through Dogecoin transactions or potentially “Marscoin,” thereby hinting that a new digital asset will be created specifically
for Mars residents. That’s what’s happened this week in crypto. See you next week. If you've enjoyed this video,
