Whales Bite As Bitcoin Sinks in This Week’s Crypto News
We start this week with a request. The Bad Crypto Podcast has been nominated in the Noonies for Cryptocurrency Podcast of the Year. If we’ve entertained you, informed you or just made you go “hmm, I did not know that” this year, please throw a vote or three in our direction. We would be very grateful.
Twitter is hiring anew crypto boss but they might want to think about offering the post to Snoop Dogg. The rapper is selling an NFT of a private party pass. Other celebs are in NFT trouble,Miramax is suing Quentin Tarantino over his Pulp Fiction NFTs.
Crypto moves further towards the mainstream as another major arena has been bought out for the next 20 years. A whale signals upwards move for Bitcoin as he buys $99 million more. Many think the massive run is getting closer as we approach the holidays. So much stuff is happening we just can’t. But we will because we want to. Obviously, you want to as well. Gluttons for punishment, I suppose.
So grab some more beans and sit by the fire, no matter what Mr. Taggart says, cause this is our bad news episode #567 of The Bad Crypto Podcast.
Nayib Bukele agrees. The President of El Salvador, the first country in the world to accept Bitcoin as a currency, tweeted that he bought the dip. El Salvador bought 150 new coins, bringing its holding to 700 coins. El Salvador bought at $45,500. At current prices, the purchase puts El Salvadoran taxpayers just over a quarter of a million dollars in the red.
President Bukele will be hoping that those figures improve soon. The New York Digital Investment Group (NYDIG) has already produced some good figures. The group has published a report into Bitcoin’s carbon footprint. The report predicts that even if Bitcoin reaches $10 trillion by 2030, its emissions would still amount to only 0.9 percent of the world’s total, and its energy outlay would be just 0.4 percent.
Another coin doing well is Adventure Gold, part of the open-source Loot Project. The coins will become an in-game currency. An announcement from Coinbase about the currency sent the price from $2.91 to $4.29. And Dogecoin is still having its moment. Adam Aron, CEO of movie theater chain AMC has suggested that the company might accept Dogecoin in addition to Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash for online payments.
While old coins keep going, there’s more talk of the benefits of DeFi for the unbanked, and Compass Mining has launched a new service to let everyone benefit from cryptocurrency mining. It’s offering six different rigs.
And finally, Ron Watkins, a former administrator’s at his father’s 8Chan website and a leading force behind the QAnon movement, is selling NFTs to fund a new “secret project.” The NFTs of tweets from his now-banned stream are intended to raise funds for what Watkins has called “a critical project to help America.”
Someone clearly doesn’t think everything is in “good shape.”
