Professional traders don’t expect bitcoin to stay over $20K any time soon. Bitcoin’s climate impact could be bigger than gold mining’s. CFTC Chair Rostin Benham says regulation could double bitcon’s price. Did you know you can buy bitcoin with SWIFTI’ll side with professional traders. Bitcoin will go over $20,000 again and stay there, but not this year. And if you think the CFTC chair is off his rockers for saying regulation could double bitcoin’s price, think again. Falling under the regulatory scrutiny of the CFTC would give a lot of investors more confidence to invest in bitcoin, and it could stabilize over time as more pro traders put their money into BTC and keep it there.

Binance offers support for Ethereum POW mining pool and ETHW price rallies. Ethereum Cofounder Anthony Di Iorio has concerns about centralizationThe problem isn’t so much that Ethereum is becoming more centralized. It’s that the blockchain is becoming more centralized by wealth concentration. How is that any different than the real world?

One of the most contentious battles in the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) v.

Ooki DAO members have begun discussing ways to finance legal counsel against allegations made by the Commodity Futures Trading Association (CFTC). The matter isn’t settled, however, because one commissioner dissents, possibly giving Ooki DAO a ready-made defense. In times like these, I side with the underdog. I hope Ooki DAO eats the CFTC’s lunch.

Millennials are losing interest in cryptoThey’ll get interested again when the market starts to rise. And when they buy too high and the market falls again, they’ll lose money and cry on each other’s shoulders. History repeats itself because people don’t learn from it. Buy low, sell high; not the other way around. But even crypto fans are beginning to doubt.

Does the metaverse have implications for the future of banking? Two-thirds of enterprise executives say they’re waiting for competitors to invest in the metaverse before they do. “You first.” No, you first. “Go ahead, jump.” After you. “No, no; I insist.” At this pace, the metaverse will be the lady in waiting.
