Numerous major events transpired in the bitcoin, ethereum and blockchain worlds this year: bitcoin continued to hit all-time highs breaking $13,000 recently, nearly $4B has been raised in cryptocurrency offerings, and there were numerous blockchain proof-of-concepts successfully completed by major financial institutions.
