Not for old farts like Musk and creepy Chinese party the modern cutting edge technology

The next generation of investors are super online ⁠— instead of traditional investments, many Gen Z and young millennial investors, from teens to those in their early 20s, are bullish on cryptocurrency and the technology that surrounds it.

Not exactly.
“ This means that people in the UK are not allowed to use Binance's services to speculate, or bet, on whether the price of a crypto-currency like Bitcoin goes up or down.
However, they are still allowed to use the website to purchase and sell crypto-currencies”

So, no options trading? How is people going to enjoy life without 100x leverage?

Finally, some piece of good regulatory news that should rather encourage investors than discourage

Re: Mass adoption crypto

Long expected short squeeze has brought back the price of bitcoins from the doldrums. Hopefully, a new bull market will follow shortly after, as the the coiners got their asses kicked a big time past two months.

Apparently, short squeeze confirmed while shorts liquidated their positions …

Forgot to reply on the day. There were not many shorts open on leverage, e.g. Finex shorts 70-80% down vs. recent aths, hence I don't think its a short squeeze. There was a news that Amazon might enter the space as well.

Can't really call every uptick a short squeeze, need to look at OI in shorts and leveraged financing rates.
