In a gesture of care about the safety of SHIB enthusiasts' funds, SHIB lead Shytoshi Kusama made a major announcement on his "Shibarium Tech" Telegram channel.

Ripple v. SEC to end next month? Top lawyer reacts to Ripple CEO's prediction
During his appearance at a recent fintech summit in Dubai, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse has provided a fresh perspective on when the legal battle between the fintech giant and the SEC might come to an end. Garlinghouse believes the case might be resolved in the next two to six months, hoping that it will happen before Q3. The Ripple CEO's forecast got the attention of pro-crypto lawyer Bill Morgan. He stated that Garlinghouse's estimate of two to six months for the resolution of the SEC case against Ripple is likely accurate, and it could even be resolved next month. Morgan suggested that the Ripple CEO's prognosis may be based on details provided by the crypto company's attorneys, which makes it a better-educated guess than others.
Legendary trader warns of potential Bitcoin collapse
In a recent tweet, prominent trader Peter Brandt expressed his concerns about Bitcoin's potential collapse as the flagship cryptocurrency showed a "head and shoulders" pattern on its daily chart. "A head and shoulders should be taken seriously if it is completed," reads Brandt's post. The completion of this pattern, which Brandt suggests Bitcoin is approaching, often indicates that a security's price is set to fall, implying that Bitcoin could be on the verge of a significant downturn. At the moment of writing, BTC is changing hands at $26,343, down almost 3% over the past 24 hours, per CoinMarketCap.
