Video of the Week

The American Congress held a hearing with the crypto key players this Wednesday. In this supercut, you can see the main points that were discussed: how the crypto market can enhance the economy, how to safeguard investors from volatility, and more.

Cryptocurrency News from Twitter

Needless to say, Ubisoft introducing NFTs was controversial. Particularly, many users were lost regarding what adding NFTs achieves in their implementation — there would be no difference if it was centralized.

Congressman Brad Sherman made a semi-joking statement during the congressional hearing, claiming that any crypto could be succeeded by another coin with an increasingly absurd brand. And wouldn’t you know — now there are multiple Mongoose Coins (as MONGOOSE, GOOSE and MONG, all separate tokens), Son of Mongoose and Baby Mongoose.

A crypto company going public would usually be met with enthusiasm — but not in OpenSea’s case. The community decried the traditionalistic approach, and opinions that OpenSea only got as far thanks to the users were often expressed.

Influencer of the Week

It is rather unusual to see a Crypto Twitter account that centers around art but that doesn’t mean there are none. For one, there is Brekkie, who as often shares their insights on Bitcoin as pieces of art.
