Your Bitcoin Wrap Up:
July 2010…1 Bitcoin = $0.09, 1 Oz Gold = $1,188
Today…1 Bitcoin = $4,765, 1 Oz Gold: $1,322
At $79 billion, Bitcoin’s market cap is now greater than 87% of the companies in the S&P 500.
BTC made few All time highs today but the strength and belief in the market stems from the Altcoins also holding very strong except a few minor corrections. Again a very healthy sign IMO. 
So much stuff to talk about as usual in the blockchain world.  But we believe the major news for now is about the Moscow Exchange allowing trading in cryptos. SEC tightens and Moscow lightens. 
Following is the excerpt from forbes that highlights Russia’s Deputy Minister of Finance, Alexei Moiseyev, told Rossiya 24 on Tuesday that the exchange regulator will only allow for qualified investors to trade in crypto-currency in order to avoid large money laundering operations. Qualified investors in Russia need to have at least six million rubles in personal assets or 200 million rubles for investment firms. 
Trust me - everyone is qualified in Russia from what I hear. A great article and coverage below on that.
