Crypto markets continue to struggle as bitcoin took a major beating this week, due in large part to the¬†Google crypto ad ban news¬†being blown out of proportion. That being said, this dismal price action hasn’t slowed the rapid growth of the industry. Each week, more and more bullish news is released and subsequently overlooked by most of the media. Whether it’s studies showing that merchants want to accept cryptocurrency as a form of payment, or news that large companies are making significant investments in blockchain projects, there’s plenty of positives despite the market downturn.

Eventually, something’s got to give — it’s just a matter of time until the markets return to form.
