📌 Top 5 stories of the week in a nutshell:

🐶 Shiba Inu and Dogecoin have bypassed even Bitcoin in the US

In 23 US states, Dogecoin (DOGE) and Shiba Inu (SHIB) were the most popular cryptocurrencies according to search queries. Analysts explained DOGE’s leadership by Elon Musk’s attention to the asset. Moreover, a representative of Musk took one of the managing positions on the board of the Dogecoin Foundation, which announced its relaunch some time ago. 

Another reason for the growth is the high degree of acceptance of meme coins by Americans. According to CoinGecko, since the beginning of the year, DOGE has risen in price by 20,170%.

📖 US Regulators will prepare a guide on cryptocurrencies

US banking regulators, namely the Fed, FDIC and OCC, have identified a number of areas related to the regulation of digital assets that require additional clarification. During 2022, the agencies plan to clarify whether certain actions related to crypto assets carried out by banking organizations are legal.

To date, the agencies have developed an agreed set of terms, identified key risks and analyzed how existing rules and guidelines can be applied.

🏃‍♂️Elon Musk calls to leave CEX exchanges

Elon Musk raises a new wave of protest in the cryptocurrency market. After a quarrel with Binance CEO Changpeng ZHAO, the Tesla founder called on DOGE hodlers to leave centralized trading platforms offering digital asset exchange services.

In a recent tweet, the billionaire spoke out in favor of withdrawing money from centralized trading platforms so that Dogecoin holders control their own private keys.

🏃‍♀️ NFT named word of the year, overtaking “Bitcoin”

Publisher HarperCollins said that the reduction of NFT has become “mainstream”, as billions of dollars have been spent on the purchase of collectible tokens with unique images and videos. 

According to linguists, the frequency of using the abbreviation NFT has increased by 11,273% this year. She managed to overtake the words associated with the coronavirus pandemic and enter the top ten most popular words of this year. Moreover, the abbreviation NFT has now been added to the Collins English Dictionary, as well as the words “crypto” and “metaverse”.

📈 The price of bitcoin has fallen below $55,000

On Friday, November 26, the quotes of the first cryptocurrency fell below the $55,000 mark. According to CoinGecko, the drop over the past day was 5.9%

Not all participants of the crypto community were concerned about the correction. Analyst Michael van de Poppe called the current price dynamics “beautiful”. He drew attention to the fact that not only the cryptocurrency market is falling. In his opinion, PlanB’s idea of bitcoin reaching the $98,000 mark “no longer exists.”
