This week in the Cryptosphere: Vitalik Buterin said that high Ethereum fees might be gone even before ETH 2.0, and DeFi darling yearn.finance crashed 60% from its ATH, while Virgin Galactic Chairman said BTC can’t be correlated to traditional assets. TaoTao said it “ended negotiations” with Binance, and the SBI Group snapped up a controlling stake in TaoTao from Yahoo Japan. BitMEX crackdown might turn the regulatory eye towards DeFi, while the exchange saw large drops in open interest and BTC balances, and then Hayes stepped down from his 100x Group CEO role. MetaMask revealed a token swap feature as it surpassed 1m monthly active users, and Ripple won a major battle in court with one more claim left to battle out.
But wait! There’s more. The South Korean central bank announced its CBDC pilot for 2021, digital yuan testers spent USD 52 per transaction on average, Europol called on EU members to press crypto businesses to enforce tighter KYC policies, and the OCC may clarify if banks can hold private coins. The SEC invited innovators in the crypto space, saying that stocks may become tokenized, and it also said John McAfee was promoting ICOs without disclosing he was paid to do so. Investors keep ignoring Indian crypto ban rumors as Tim Draper backed Unocoin exchange, BMW Korea launched a blockchain-powered “lifestyle” platform, and Bitcoin-inspired art sold for over USD 131,000 at Christie’s.
And now, here are this week’s crypto jokes. Enjoy!
