Latest Crypto News Digest

Bitcoin This Week

  • Bitcoin is being compressed into a sideways trend in a wide range between $60 and 64 thousand. The trend is noticeable on hourly, 4-hour and daily charts.
  • Will Bitcoin crash again? Consolidation periods usually resolve in breakouts, and the trends suggest an outbreak to the upside is more likely.

Latest Bitcoin News

  • The Bitcoin whitepaper was published 13 years ago on October 13, 2008.
  • Digital asset manager Genesis published a report on Q3 2021 highlighting trends in the institutional investment strategies. One of the most curious tidbits suggests that investors’ demand for Bitcoin is actually trending down, though the demand for Bitcoin-based products grows.

Altcoin News

  • Altcoins continue the run, and this time Polkadot and by association Kusama are trending. The parachain auction on Polkadot is due next week, and DOT renewed its ATH on November 4: $55.
  • A project that became really popular last week, capitalizing on the popularity of the Netflix show Squid Game, pulled a rug on its investors. Despite the claims of the hack from the developers, the signs such as disabled withdrawals and lack of a real product had been pointing at fraud.
  • The Dogecoin community has elected a new “CEO”: the Doge herself. Previously elected “CEO”, Elon Musk, got an honorary title of the Dogecoin chairman — all for fun only.

Business Crypto News

  • Digital asset manager Grayscale has published a list of altcoins for consideration. 19 altcoins being researched include 1inch, Monero, Terra, Tezos and others.
  • On Nov 1, 2021 Binance was experiencing downtimes so severe, the exchange suspended withdrawals. Reportedly, its competitors were up and running at the same time under the comparable pressure.

Crypto News on Adoption

  • The Secretary of El Salvador President announced a development program for education. The 20 new schools are said to be built with $20 million made off Bitcoin in the country’s treasury.
  • French game developer Ubisoft announced plans to branch into play-to-earn and utilize blockchain technology. This comes after the company invested into Animoca Brands, the company behind The Sandbox.

Regulation & Politics Crypto News

  • Chairman of SEC Gary Gensler addressed the regulators underlining that the security laws will be enforced onto crypto businesses as well. “Make no mistake: regardless of the label or purported mission, we will be looking at the economic realities of a given product or arrangement to determine whether it complies with the securities laws”, he said.
  • Kazakhstan is reported to limit the retail investors allocation into crypto. They can choose to report their income and invest up to 10% of their monthly income or decline and have the $1,000 monthly limit.

Social Media Digest

Video of the Week

With Facebook rebranding to Meta, the Metaverse narrative reemerged, along with Web3. Altcoin Buzz makes a suggestion of five altcoins that could soar on the sentiment: Enjin, The Sandbox, Ultra, Chiliz and Sorare.

Crypto News from Twitter

New York mayor-elect Eric Adams attracted a lot of attention for his pro-crypto stance. He even claims to put the money where his mouth is and vowed to receive paychecks in BTC and continue pro-crypto politics.

User godwin_france shared some insights into the usage of play-to-earn hit Axie Infinity in Ghana. According to his data, the dividends this game brings to his compatriots comprise a significant boost for the players’ incomes.

Not a week goes without a scandal of some kind in the NFT space: this time, actor Elijah Wood received an NFT by George Trosley. The illustrator had a history of being commissioned to make pieces with racist imagery for the Hustler magazine.
Despite the lapse of the commission, the situation caused a backlash. The Hollywood actor, illustrator and his son made attempts to apologize but the whole lineup of NFTs lost a significant portion of their value as a result.

Influencer of the Week
