Miami Set to Launch Its Own Cryptocurrency

Hello everyone, this is our weekly crypto digest. Here you’ll find everything from a weekly market summary and top news to the hottest new listings on exchanges, and even memes to cheer you up. To get these updates as soon as we post them, follow us on Twitter.

Weekly Market Summary

At a conference organized by the Aspen Institute, SEC Chair Gary Gensler explained his position on crypto regulations.

The SEC Chair emphasized the need for more stringent and well-enforced investor safeguards in the cryptocurrency space.

“Right now, we just don’t have enough investor protection in crypto,” said Gensler. “Frankly, at this time, it’s more like the Wild West.”

He added that most cryptocurrencies are “highly speculative stores of value.” DeFi protocols, crypto lenders, and stablecoins, according to Gensler, may all be targets of an expanded regulatory regime.

Binance’s Singapore-registered entity is free from the need for a license for the time being, but it’s under review with Singapore’s regulator. Binance’s application is presently being reviewed by the Singapore Monetary Authority, although a “substantial number” of companies like Binance have been turned down.

Changpeng “CZ” Zhao, the CEO of Binance, has frequently insisted that his company is “decentralized,” and so lacks a physical headquarters. That argument has not gone over well with other global regulators recently, including the Financial Conduct Authority of the United Kingdom, which issued a consumer warning against a Binance entity in the United Kingdom in June and said the FCA views Binance’s lack of headquarters as a “huge issue.”

Other notable events include:

– Google Allows Crypto Ads in US
– Binance to bring Bitcoin payments to Shopify via new partnership

Google Allows Crypto Ads

On August 3, after the updated financial products and services policy came into force, cryptocurrency advertising on Google was again allowed.

This document was first introduced in June that “exchanger and wallet advertisers” targeting US consumers offer their services and products if they meet certain requirements.

Certain sorts of advertising, as well as ad destinations that collect or compare crypto service providers, are still prohibited by Google. Ads related to initial coin offerings and DeFi trading protocols are also not permitted.

Binance to bring Bitcoin payments to Shopify via new partnership

Despite the constant hate from regulators, Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volumes, continues to actively expand its crypto-fiat directions.

Yesterday the company announced a partnership with crypto-fiat hybrid payment platform Alchemy Pay that will bring peer-to-peer (P2P) crypto to over 2 million merchants worldwide through its Binance Pay payment app.

PinkMoon Protocol is the ecosystem consisting of several modules including pinkswap.finance, pinksale.finance and, most importantly, their own token. To join the project and receive your own liquidity provider tokens (LP tokens), you must hold your share of the PINKM tokens in their pools. That said, the more your share in their pool weights, the more rewards you reap.

Also, the project is known as a suite of tools to create your own tokens and launchpads in a fast, simple and cheap way, with no prior code knowledge required. That’s why on BSC, PinkMoon often serves as a launchpad for manifold meme currencies.

Peculiarities:

  • Community driven & fair launch.
  • Every transaction incurs the fee of 10% to the benefit of all.
  • Anti whale trades, transactions (sell/buy) that trade more than 0.05% of the total supply will be rejected.
  • The Liquidity of PinkMoon (45% of total supply) will be locked at launch with Unicrypt.

coin_of_the_week

Monero is the leading cryptocurrency focused on private and censorship-resistant transactions.
The majority of existing cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin and Ethereum, have transparent blockchains. Transactions can be verified and/or traced by anyone in the world. This means that the sending and receiving addresses of these transactions could potentially be linked to real-world identities.

Monero, on the other hand, uses various privacy-enhancing technologies to ensure the anonymity of its users.

Peculiarities:

  • Monero transactions are confidential and untraceable.
  • Monero is electronic cash that allows fast, inexpensive payments to and from anywhere in the world.
  • Monero is a grassroots community attracting the world’s best cryptocurrency researchers and engineering talent.
