Since the whole market is relying on USD, any news regarding the November election would stir the community up.

Crypto News on Politics

Crypto News from Twitter

Not unexpectedly, Crypto Twitter was discussing the news connected with Donald Trump and the first presidential debate. However, we found some insightful discussions we would like to share in this crypto digest. Enjoy!

Jack Dorsey argued with the apolitical stance of Coinbase. In his words, Bitcoin is inherently politically charged, given that this is the money that operates outside of any existing financial system, so the stance one of the largest crypto businesses is taking is absurd. However, not everyone appreciated him equating Bitcoin with crypto.

TikTok influencer Bryce Hall became known in the crypto space this week, as he got invited to Anthony Pompliano’s podcast after expressing interest in purchasing crypto. Hall has 12 million subscribers on TikTok and almost 3 million YouTube subscribers.

Professor Adam Cochran composed a beast of a thread why the BitMEX allegations pose a threat to DeFi as well. While it is harder to imagine how an authority can charge a contract, the contracts are still developed and maintained by people, who by the legal guidelines are directly responsible for any unlawful activity on their chain.

CoinDesk writer Zack Voell shared an insight into today’s news about Trump’s diagnosis: the stock markets reacted immediately, and crypto followed suit. However, movements in crypto were nothing alike the general markets. Voell’s wording could have been better, though: a 1% change is hardly a crash or a soar.

These were not all, but the most important events and discussions in crypto this week. Next, let’s move on to the coin digest to see how these stories influenced the numbers.
