- China announced a ban on initial coin offerings on Monday which caused cryptocurrencies to stumble briefly. This ban could go beyond ICOs based on the language of the ban which may include cryptocurrency exchanges. But that isn’t the only blow to cryptocurrency this week.

Shiller is known for calling the last two bubbles before they happened and as the author of “Irrational Exuberance.”

Kessler also shares his favourite tech stock which is one of the worst 10 performers in the tech sector year-to-date.
