Consensus 2019 and Blockchain Week NYC witnessed a flurry of developments in the crypto-sector. Many in the community speculated the rise in institutional adoption to be the cause of the massive surge in Bitcoin prices and the collective cryptocurrency market’s value. The long sought after market recovery propelled the digital coins to break several resistance points, despite cooling down shortly after.

The most recent development making headlines was the Gemini and Flexa partnership. In a bid to enable users to purchase from prominent retailers across the US, like Barnes & Noble, Baskin Robbins, Bed Bath & Beyond, Caribou Coffee, and Crate & Barrel, among others, the leading digital currency exchange collaborated with the payment solution provider channel.

While speaking at the 10th Asian Leadership Conference 2019 in South Korea, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao aka CZ, commented,

“If you don’t want to be left out in the future, you will have to embrace it.”

CZ  added that cryptocurrencies “could not be ignored” and added that the ones who are doing so would end up making themselves “poorer”.

According to the CEO of one of the world’s leading crypto-exchange platforms, Bitcoin [BTC] or cryptocurrencies, do not fall under the category of traditional assets. He said that digital coins are neither securities nor commodities, adding that they are not even “currencies”, but something very different and unique.

In his presentation, CZ also mentioned that if someone was trying to “nib Bitcoin in the bud”, then it would imply that they simply “don’t understand” it. He added,

“If you want to ban Bitcoin, which many people have tried, then all you’re doing is just excluding yourself from the future of finance. “
