It’s impossible to round up all the news in one crypto digest, but we chose the most essential. Next, read some of the stories from Twitter that sparked the most heated discussions.

Crypto News from Twitter

The fact that the Chairman of the US CFTC (Commodity Futures Trading Commission) endorsed Ethereum obviously could not go past the most prominent Ethereum community member, Vitalik Buterin. In the video, Heath Tarbert compares Bitcoin and Ethereum — and the former is not his favorite, as he calls the two “email” and “the Internet”, referring to their capabilities.

Not only Bitcoiners are keeping an eye on the network activity. Surprisingly, despite the surging popularity of the Ethereum platform, more than half of the ETH supply has not been moved in a year or more. Anthony Sassano, Ethereum developer, anticipates this figure to change once staking becomes active on Ethereum.

Crypto Twitter was also discussing derisking solutions of David Schwartz, CTO of Ripple, once he disclosed some of them. He himself admits that in hindsight, selling XRP for $0.10 and BTC for $750 was not easy. Some users, though, found the fact that a Ripple executive sells the company’s tokens as a part of de-risking strategy suspicious.
