Crypto Exchange Kraken Hunting New EU License After Brexit

The second-largest cryptocurrency exchange in the United States by trading volume, Kraken, negotiates with European regulators to get a license to join the European market by the end of 2021.

According to a Kraken spokesman, the exchange is already formally present in Europe, however, currently offers access to its European clients through an organization registered with the Financial Conduct Authority of the United Kingdom (FCA).

“We are working on a license in an EU country,” Kraken’s founder and CEO Jesse Powell said in an interview with German business publication Handelsblatt.

While the negotiations are still underway, there hasn’t been an official decision yet.

El Salvador’s Bitcoin adoption may transform remittance in Central America

According to the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI), remittances are an important aspect of El Salvador’s Bitcoin (BTC) adoption policy.

The regional development bank expects other Central American countries to pay careful attention to Bitcoin’s impact on remittance costs in El Salvador, aссording to Reuters.

The executive president of the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI), Dante Mossi said as follows: “Everyone is watching if it goes well for El Salvador and if, for example, the cost of remittances drops substantially … other countries will probably seek that advantage and adopt it,”

According to the CABEI CEO, El Salvador’s Bitcoin adoption strategy is an “out of this world experiment” that may contribute to greater financial inclusion in the country.

In theory, Bitcoin offers a quick and cheap way to move money across borders without having to rely on established channels.

Axie Infinity is a blockchain-based trading and battling game that is partially owned and operated by its players. Axie Infinity is inspired by popular games like Pokémon and Tamagotchi and allows players to collect, breed, raise, battle and trade token-based creatures known as Axies. Each Axie is a non-fungible token (NFT) with different attributes and strengths and can take various forms.

To help control the population of Axies, each one can only be bred a total of seven times, unlike some other blockchain-based battling and breeding games.

AXS token holders will soon be able to stake their tokens to receive regular rewards. Unlike some other stakeable assets, however, AXS holders will have to vote and play to receive their rewards.
