Frontman KISS zgarnia $300,000 w ADA

Na początku dzisiejszego dnia, Simmons zatweetował, że nabył ADA o wartości $300,000. Stwierdził, że jest byczo nastawiony do tej monety i zdecydował się na nią, ponieważ prawie każdy może sobie pozwolić na ADA, jest ona znacznie tańsza niż Bitcoin.

Regulatory Echo: the digital euro in the vice of the major powers

The digital euro – Europe’s way out of the vice of the great powers?

The European Central Bank is under pressure to act. With the newly christened Facebook coin Diem in the West, the digital yuan in the East, Europe is thinking of itself as a digital power in the all-too-familiar vice of the great powers. In its search for its own place in the world, however, the ECB does not want to admit defeat. With the increasingly concrete plans for the digital euro, the answer seems to be clear.

Five more years? – Christine Lagarde comments on the introduction of the digital euro and crypto-currencies

More and more people in Europe are swearing off cash. So the colourful euro notes seem increasingly outdated. And while central banks around the world – above all the Chinese Volksbank – are showing the way, ECB President Christine Lagarde is also convinced that the euro must become „fit for the digital age“. Contrary to the scepticism of her colleagues, she sees Immediate Bitcoin the digital euro already in the starting blocks. Last week, the debate on the possible introduction of the digital currency counterpart seemed to be picking up speed again. In a guest article for the French press, the chief monetary watchdog argued that the digital euro could become necessary to prevent the „introduction of foreign digital currencies in the euro area“.

CBDC – The European Central Bank’s digital euro: an assessment

But can the digital euro actually fulfil this role? Will it transform the European monetary system? Where are its potentials, where are its pitfalls? Jonas Groß and Philipp Sandner from the Blockchain Center of the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management and Alexander Bechtel from the University of St. Gallen asked themselves these questions. In their guest article they take a close look at the digital euro for BTC-ECHO. It’s worth reading.

Saudi Arabia and UAE – CBDC pilot project exceeds expectations

Great tasks are better done in pairs. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates must have thought so too. Together, both neighbouring and brother states have taken on the monetary policy forward-looking project of an own digital currency. Now the countries‘ central banks have published a first detailed report on the joint feasibility study. The results of the one-year test run prove the benefits of the block chain in domestic and cross-border payment transactions – and thus exceed the expectations of the central bankers. This should keep the Arabian Peninsula on a DLT course.

US delegates call for strict regulation of Stablecoins

While Facebook does not want to admit defeat to its currency project despite the constant headwind, US lawmakers continue to oppose global stablecoin projects. In the US Congress last week, members of the Democratic Party submitted another bill to regulate the dreaded alternative currencies. The aim of the initiative is to better protect consumers. It is currently impossible to predict what success the initiative could have. Although the current legislative period will end in just a few weeks, the Democrats should then have a majority in the US Congress. However, the crypto-community is sceptical about the draft.

I truffatori di Crypto frodano la nonna britannica di 65.000 sterline

Una cittadina anziana residente nel Regno Unito è stata recentemente defraudata da truffatori criptati che le hanno fatto perdere 67.000 sterline.

Come riportato da The Telegraph, una donna anziana del Regno Unito è stata truffata due volte da truffatori di crittografia che le hanno fatto perdere più di 65.000 sterline mentre cercava di guadagnare profitti attraverso la criptovaluta.

Una volta morsa due volte timida?

Amanda Briggs, che è lo pseudonimo della donna inglese di 72 anni, voleva guadagnare profitti attraverso la cripto-moneta per mandare i suoi nipoti in scuole private. Si è interessata a Bitcoin dopo aver visto un episodio con Bitcoin Future nel popolare programma televisivo della BBC Dragon’s Den.

Ha investito 42.000 sterline nell’ormai confermato broker truffa Extick, che alla fine è stato chiuso. Il suo partner bancario, Barclays, le ha sconsigliato l’investimento dubbio. Tuttavia, la nonna si è rifiutata di prendere sul serio il consiglio e ha proseguito con l’investimento.

In seguito ammise che le persone che lavoravano per Extick erano molto „persuasive“ e che poteva praticamente vedere i profitti che si accumulavano. Tuttavia, la realtà si è rivelata molto diversa dalla sua visione. Quando decise di ritirare i fondi, sul suo conto rimase solo una misera somma di 91 sterline, mentre il resto della sua somma era stata rubata dai truffatori di crypto.

Tuttavia, la sua storia non finisce qui. Un altro truffatore, questo che fingeva di essere un funzionario della Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), ha contattato la donna via e-mail. Il pretendente l’ha convinta a pagare 25.000 sterline con la premessa di recuperare la sua perdita iniziale.

I truffatori di Crypto si rivolgono agli anziani

Con la crescita del settore della crittovaluta, anche l’attività criminale è in aumento. Poiché la tecnologia a catena di blocco è un concetto nuovo per il grande pubblico, i truffatori trovano relativamente facile ingannare le persone. Infatti, l’FBI aveva pubblicato un avvertimento riguardante il crescente numero di truffatori di crittografia che prendono di mira i cittadini anziani. Questi truffatori si rivolgono per lo più alle persone anziane perché hanno meno conoscenze sulle tecnologie emergenti.
