Some of the biggest crypto stories from Wednesday include a crackdown on advertising in the UK and trouble for users at Singapore's Crypto.com.

Most cryptocurrencies were marginally lower on Wednesday, though Bitcoin (BTC) bucked the trend to edge slightly higher.

Here are some of today’s main crypto stories:

  • Crypto.com has halted withdrawals amid reports that $15m-worth of Ethereum (ETH) has been stolen from the exchange. 

  • Coinbase (NASDAQ: COIN) is partnering with Mastercard (NYSE: MA) to let consumers buy NFTs using the credit card in its upcoming NFT marketplace. This will make buying NFTs simpler and add credibility to the space.

  • The UK Treasury has announced plans to crack down on misleading cryptocurrency adverts, which it says will become subject to the same regulations that stocks, shares and insurance products are subjected to. 

  • Gareth Southgate, manager of the England national football team, is the latest major celebrity to be falsely represented in such advertisements. A mass email claimed that the former Middlesbrough midfielder made a fortune from trading on an unnamed crypto platform.

  • Tonga is accepting donations in Bitcoin (BTC) as it seeks to recover from a volcanic eruption at the weekend.
