gm NFTs March 9: Yellen Leak, Dour Darcels Rise
Late last night, both BTC and ETH jumped, perhaps as a result of the leaked report from the desk of Secretary of the Treasury, Janet Yellen. BTC jumped roughly 5% and $ETH over 3% in just a 60 minute span. After that both coins experienced a slight pullback, but both remain up over 7% on a 24-hour basis, as of this writing.

Biden Executive Order Expected Today
The White House and Congress have been teasing an executive order with regards to cryptocurrency for a few months now.
According to this Tweet by Matt Corallo (@TheBlueMatt), Janet Yellen, the current U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, released and then immediately deleted a statement.
Thankfully, these days posting something and then removing it as quickly as Yellen did is not quite enough to stop the world from seeing it. In fact, the entire statement, posted (and subsequently deleted) last night but containing today's date, is available to read right now.
The announcement suggests that Yellen and her Treasury Department will be investigating cryptocurrency, digital assets, and are expected to "produce a report on the future of money and payment systems."
Enjoy your hump day and we will see you right back here tomorrow.
