Weekly Market Summary

Chinese authorities have demanded McDonald’s to add support for the digital yuan before the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing start.

Being a part of pilot trials, McDonald’s accepts digital currency at 270 locations in Shanghai, but now the chain needs to expand a trial of its digital yuan payments system throughout the country.

Previously, Visa and Nike were in a similar situation.

Bloomberg senior ETF analyst Eric Balchunas said that the largest US investment company Invesco has refused to launch a US Bitcoin futures exchange-traded fund (ETF) just before the first-ever such fund begins trading.

The firm filed to delay the listing Monday and said it will focus on a physically-backed Bitcoin ETF.

The Tiger King is the most recent meme coin released on the Ethereum network in May 2020. The cryptocurrency is claiming to be the “official coin” of the popular Netflix series Tiger King. The documentary series, which launched in March 2020, explored the bizarre underworld of Tiger breeding.

Its goal is to create decentralized applications “by building its use-cases from the community.” There are currently four dApps that are featured on the Tiger King website:

  • EtherLIFT — a gas fee sponsorship application for advertisers to reach users of the Ethereum blockchain;
  • ChainChat — a private peer-to-peer messenger over the blockchain;
  • TigerTracks — a graphical representation of data on the blockchain;
  • Tiger King Coin Gamepad — a betting platform for TKING holders.

XRP currency runs on a RippleNet digital payment platform, which is on top of a distributed ledger database called XRP Ledger. The coin can be sent directly without an intermediary.

XRP is used for payment settlement, asset exchange and remittance systems that work more like SWIFT, a service for international money and security transfers used by a network of banks and financial intermediaries. XRP can settle transactions on the ledger in 3-5 seconds. It was built to be a better Bitcoin – faster, cheaper and greener than any other digital asset.
