3. GM’s Battery Investment

General Motors is at the front of an investment round for a startup that is researching cathode active minerals for GM’s EV batteries. The batteries they are looking to design would be less complex and would cost less to produce. The battery race is on and automakers are going to do everything they can to partner with companies that can give them any advantage. This ties in with increased lithium demand that investors should be paying attention to. 

4. Coinbase’s Futures

Two years after applying for approval, Coinbase can now list crypto futures in the US. This makes Coinbase the first crypto-focused platform in the US to offer regulated and leveraged crypto futures. It could also expand into untapped territory with this decision. These are the kinds of developments that shape the crypto space and allow investors in the sector to stay on top of the things that can help them profit. 

What to Look For:
