Ethereum first step of the very much anticipated Metropolis upgrade is so very close - the Byzantium Hard Fork that will be taking place at block 4,370,000 using 'blockchain language' - which could mean around Oct 16.
Overall the weekend is showing no significant development for the digital assets against the US Dollar as usually the end of the week is not a positive turn.
The "Byzantium" Upgrade for Ethereum's Network will be taking place one week later.
The relationship between Wall Street and Blockchain Technology continues to be on a weak level. Banks and major financial institutions have declared for and against the era-changing technology while some Banks like in America are reaching for patents.

The time for "The Byzantium" testnet launch has been announced - the first of the two phases for Metropolis Network Upgrade for Ethereum.
