Additional stories included a Chinese user of Okcoin who is suing the exchange over his missing bitcoin cash following last year’s fork and a cybersecurity research that found trading venues experienced a massive surge of user data leaks. Coinbase Increases Trading Limits The main story on Wednesday covered a few new developments at Coinbase. Users are now able to buy digital coins right after they deposit funds from their bank account, cutting down a process that took days of waiting before. The company also announced an increase of the daily trading limits for US users, and for verified customers, the maximum allowable purchase will jump from $25,000 weekly to $25,000 per day. The exchange also noted that once the funds are transferred, there are no longer any limits to how much users can buy or sell at a time.

Shapeshift Acquires Bitfract A couple of investments by established crypto companies made headlines on Thursday . Shapeshift completed the acquisition of Bitfract, a software firm which recently developed a service that allows users to swap from one cryptocurrency to many in an instant. Following the sale, the tool will be maintained and continue to operate, and the functionality that the platform provides (multiple output transactions) will be incorporated into Shapeshift’s core platform.
