This crypto-week, we saw that Bitcoin and Ethereum networks hit a number of all-time highs, they both recovered most of their losses after Black Thursday, and the gap between their fees was narrowed. Anthony Pompliano said he’s not a BTC maximalist but that BTC is our one shot to separate money from state. Ripple and SBI are looking to roll out XRP liquidity solution ‘this year’, LibertyX enabled Americans to buy BTC at 7-Eleven, CVS Pharmacy, and Rite Aid, and there were rumours that PayPal is planning to offer buying and selling of cryptocurrencies directly from both PayPal and the PayPal-owned mobile payment app Venmo.
Furthermore, Steve Hanke said that Bitcoin must be tied to a basket of commodities to be a currency, and several economists predicted bitcoin’s demise, calling it a ‘fiat’. The Italian Banking Association approved ten criteria for a CBDC, a South Korean government agency will develop software that will trace the movement of cryptocurrencies on the dark web, and Russians are offered a gift card incentive to use blockchain voting platform. Meanwhile, a judge said no to sanctions on Craig Wright and cleared case for a July trial.
And here is your weekly portion of jokes. Enjoy!
