On July 22, 2020 the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) adjusted U.S. banking regulations to allow nationally chartered banks in the United States to provide custody services for Cryptocurrencies paving the way for legitimization of digital assets within the United States. So why is bitcoin a shining light and the best performing asset despite economic instability?
