The Ecommerce News Roundup – 29 May 2022

I read a report recently which was looking at whether the digital economy is reframing finance as we know it – specifically cryptocurrency.

It’s fair to say that ‘crypto’ is still controversial, yet there are now over 10,000 digital coins making up an ecosystem worth over $2trillion!

Now that may be mind-blowing, but so is the 4-day Jubilee bank holiday we’re headed right into…and we hope the weather isn’t traditionally British about it all!

On that note, we wish you a wonderful long weekend and some time off to peruse this week’s ecommerce & digital news… or you could just have a BBQ.
