Coinbase NFT launches beta, AMC Theatres rolls out SHIB and DOGE payments, and Blockchain.com eyes IPO: Hodler’s Digest, April 17-23

april-17-23.jpg

Coming every Saturday, Hodlers Digest will help you track every single important news story that happened this week. The best (and worst) quotes, adoption and regulation highlights, leading coins, predictions and much more a week on Cointelegraph in one link.

Top Stories This Week

AMC Theatres mobile app accepts Dogecoin, Shiba Inu and more

Retail traders favorite cinema chain, AMC Theatres, updated its mobile app to support Dogecoin and Shiba Inu payments. United States-based customers using Apple or Android phones can both download the app and spend their highly volatile memecoins on movie tickets.

The firm first teased the idea back in January, after rolling out payment support for Bitcoin, Ether, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin in November.

AMC is able to accept crypto payments via a partnership with BitPay, a Bitcoin payment service provider. It should be noted that merchants using BitPay dont receive crypto payments outright. Instead, BitPay converts crypto payments into fiat before depositing it into the merchants account.

Crypto startup Blockchain.com planning 2022 IPO

It was reported on Tuesday that $14 billion crypto exchange Blockchain.com is holding talks with banks regarding the launch of a potential initial public offering (IPO) this year.

Bloombergs unnamed sources stated that the talks were highly tentative and could change at any time (especially if those unnamed sources have been instructed by Blockchain.com to leak information to get a sense of public sentiment before revealing anything concrete).

If the firm manages to get through all the regulatory hurdles and go public via an IPO, it would join Coinbase as the only other U.S. crypto exchange to do so. Binance.US is also looking at a potential similar route in the future.

Coinbase announces beta of NFT marketplace with social engagement

Speaking of the only U.S. crypto exchange to go public, Coinbase rolled out an early beta of its NFT marketplace for a select number of testers this week. At this stage, the early adopters of Coinbase NFT can create online profiles as well as buy and sell NFTs.

In a blog post on Tuesday, Coinbase vice president of product and ecosystem Sanchan Saxena hinted that Coinbase NFT would be a hybrid platform that takes elements from social media services and marketplaces such as OpenSea.

While it is true that buying and selling NFTs is a big part of the ecosystem today, what we have learned by talking to many customers and creators is that there is more to it than just buying and selling, said Saxena. There is the community aspect of it.

German banking giant Commerzbank applies for crypto license

One of Germanys banking giants, Commerzbank, revealed this week that it had applied for a crypto license, making it the first traditional financial institution in the country to do so.

A spokesperson told local media outlet Brsen-Zeitung that it had applied for the crypto custody license in the first quarter of 2022. The move would go a long way to mainstreaming crypto in the country, as the bank serves over 18 million customers and 70,000 institutional clients.

Any business looking to roll out crypto services in Germany must first seek approval from the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority, also known as BaFin.

Goldman Sachs reportedly eyes FTX alliance with regulatory and public listing assistance

Goldman Sachs is reportedly looking to secure an alliance with top derivatives exchange FTX, offering a strong show of faith in crypto in the banking sector.

According to the Financial Times, Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon and FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried met behind closed doors in March to discuss how a potential partnership could work for both firms.

The key areas of discussion were said to involve compliance in the U.S., with Goldman Sachs offering to help FTX navigate the murky waters of regulation, in addition to assisting with future funding rounds.

Winners and Losers

At the end of the week, Bitcoin (BTC) is at $39,628, Ether (ETH) at $2,957 and XRP at $0.71. The total market cap is at $1.85 trillion, according to CoinMarketCap.

Among the biggest 100 cryptocurrencies, the top three altcoin gainers of the week are STEPN (GMT) at 40.66%, 0x (ZRX) at 22.40% and Decred (DCR) at 18.98%.

The top three altcoin losers of the week are Helium (HNT) at -12.74%, Convex Finance (CVX) at -10.82% and Maker (MKR) at -10.81%.

Most Memorable Quotations

I see Ethereum remaining as the dominant L1 for years to come, while Bitcoin retains its status as the primary store of value on the blockchain.

Lynn Liss, co-founder and chief operating officer of Akoin

Its early days, but we are encouraged by what were seeing and confident that blockchain games will continue to gain traction if they are interesting and fun to play.

Chris DeWolfe, co-founder of Myspace, CEO and co-founder of Jam City

Crypto is dead. Long live Crypto.

Andre Cronje, founder of Yearn.finance

NO! There are already digital means of payment! So what is CBDC for? […] Even more surveillance, prevention of bank runs, addiction and the consequent enslavement of mankind? This does not prevent money laundering; this already exists on a large scale for the top 10,000 in many tax havens, e.g., [the] Cayman Islands, Macau, Dubai, etc.

Anonymous

One of the guiding principles of the blockchain is that it is a public ledger thats shared and everyone with a little bit of computing power has access to it, [including] law enforcement. So the secret service hasnt been doing anything that wasnt the original intent of the blockchain. Were just using the same tracking and tracing mechanisms that were intended.

David Smith, assistant director of investigations for the United States Secret Service

“NFTs represent an opportunity for game developers to create games with player-owned economies; where the community of holders are both the early supporters of the game but also the main actors of its development and true stakeholders of its success.”

Sebastian Borget, co-founder of The Sandbox

Its very improbable that all the countries would ban noncustodial wallets, or any other aspect of Bitcoins peer-to-peer network for that matter.

Stepan Uherik, chief financial officer for SatoshiLabs

My worldview pre-Bitcoin was pretty narrow. Life looked like school, work, retirement, death. Nowadays, I think slightly differently. The ultimate goal [now] might be better described as entrepreneurship and self-sovereignty.

Mr. ERB, blogger

The point of DeFi cannot just be to trade DeFi tokens.

Arthur Breitman, co-founder of Tezos

Prediction of the Week

BTC could drop to $30K in 2 weeks, trader warns as gold goes for $2K high

Bitcoins price took a dive below $40,000 on April 17, according to Cointelegraphs BTC price index. The asset then proceeded to dip down to almost $38,500 the following day, followed by a subsequent move up past $41,000 during the same session. By Thursday, the asset had made its way up to around $43,000, although downward action followed on the same day, with the asset then falling down below $40,000.

Pseudonymous trader Crypto Ed posted a YouTube video on Monday talking about BTC price action. Looking back now, his expectations for the asset have proven pretty accurate. He expected $37,500 to serve as a bouncing point for BTC, followed by a potential run to $43,000 if the asset surpassed $40,000. He noted $43,000 as possibly just a local high, with the asset facing downward price pressure after that. The past week shows BTC moving pretty much in line with Crypto Eds comments.

He did, however, also mention that the next two weeks (from the date of his Monday video), approximately, could ultimately see BTC arrive at the $30,000 price level.

FUD of the Week

Beanstalk Farms offers plea deal to perpetrators of $76M exploit

After credit-based stablecoin protocol Beanstalk Farms was hacked for around $76 million earlier this week, the team offered a bounty of 10% if the hacker returned the funds.

Bounty offerings to blackhat hackers are becoming a common method for DeFi platforms of late, as they seem to be the most viable way of getting the projects funds back and up and running as fast as possible.

Notably, the projects founders Benjamin Weintraub, Brendan Sanderson and Michael Montoya admitted during a podcast interview on Monday that the flaws in Beanstalks design ultimately led to its undoing.

MetaMask warns Apple users over iCloud phishing attacks

Crypto wallet provider MetaMask warned the community of potential Apple iCloud phishing attacks that could become very costly.

The security issue is related to default device settings on Apple devices that see a users seed phrase or password-encrypted MetaMask vault stored on iCloud if the user has enabled automatic backups for their MetaMask application data.

MetaMasks warning came in response to reports from an NFT collector who goes by revive_dom on Twitter, who stated that their entire wallet containing $650,000 worth of digital assets and NFTs was wiped via this specific security issue.

FBI and CISA issue alert over North Korean cyberattacks on crypto targets

On Monday, the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) sent out an alert regarding North Korean state-sponsored cyber attacks.

The warning was made in response to the Ronin Bridge hack last month, which is believed to have been conducted by North Korean hackers. The FBI and CISA highlighted that hackers are specifically targeting DeFi protocols and play-to-earn games in particular, with spearphishing and malware being the methods of choice.

These actors will likely continue exploiting vulnerabilities of cryptocurrency technology firms, gaming companies, and exchanges to generate and launder funds to support the North Korean regime, the CISA wrote.

    Bitpapa Супер! Очень нравится данная платформа. Удобный интерфейс и качество сделок! Совершено уже более 60 сделок и это только начало. Возможность заработка высока. Тех поддержка отвечает быстро и по делу. Для новичков все ясно и просто. Есть телеграмм канал где можно выиграть бесплатные биткоины, в общем регистрируйтесь-не пожалеете!!!

  • 18.02.22 18:02 SuperPapa

    Bitpapa лучший на мой взгляд Р2Р сервис. Почти каждый день покупаю или продаю битки. Стабильно работает площадка. Предлагают для удобства сайт, приложение на ios и Android и Телеграм-бот. Отличный дизайн, простота и доступность. За полгода 400 сделок. Обслуживание по высшему разряду. Ну и конечно, приятные бонусы и постоянные розыгрыши. В общем, я свой выбор сделал.

  • 19.02.22 01:19 BTC_DADDY

    Офигенная площадка - то что нужно современному трейдеру ! В два клика купил-продал биток и поднял на этом чутка денежки :) Быстрая верификация и адекватный персонал службы поддержки тоже не могут не радовать Всем советую!

  • 19.02.22 15:34 Sexy_Girl

    Крутотень а не площадка, есть сайт классный с красивым интерфейсом, ботяра есть, им не пользуюсь, но кому как) тех поддержка на ура! но большие комиссии на вывод эфира и тезера. вообщем советую

  • 19.02.22 16:45 megoflood

    Как я счастлива что моему взору попался битпапа и теперь я могу не ждать по полчаса ответа от бота обменника,а за три минуты купить себе биткоин по выбранному мною курсу. Просто шикарный сервис с клевым приложением и ботом в телеграмме . Минимум комиссий, а зачастую вообще их отсутствие.

  • 19.02.22 23:40 Amerikanec105

    Крутой сервис,с хорошими акциями для своих клиентов и нормальным таким андроид приложением. Никаких багов в нем не обнаружила. Минусов на самой площадке не заметила вовсе,сплошные плюсы и позитивный настрой после пользования сервисом😸 будем пользоваться и впредь. Всем советую!

  • 20.02.22 01:34 sestra_meda

    Круто! отлично! Четкая программа для криптовалюты, есть только три крипты, это эфириум тезер и биток, большик комиссии на биткоин. Чат крутой. Пользуюсь более полугода, за все время все четко. Советую всем

  • 20.02.22 03:02 flour

    В кошеле очень удобно просматривать эквивалент крипты в рублях, и сортировать доходы/расходы по типам операций. В этом месяце на маркете было жарко, поэтому у меня больше входящих переводов

  • 20.02.22 08:09 Nikolay91179

    Могу оставить свое мнение. Битпапа хороший обменник p2p. Удобное приложение. Телеграм бот помогает сделать большинство операций по покупке продаже криптовалюты биткоин ефириум тезер. Реферальная программа для получения дополнительной прибыли. В чате очень дружная команда. Я сделалиуде более 120 операций по покупке продаже. Советую ,)

  • 20.02.22 09:02 Крестный Отец

    БитПапа классный обменник , на которой покупаю и продаю уже год. Радует интерфейс на русском языке и уровень безопаности, так как биржа имеет лицензии от регуляторов. Можно пополнять счет прямо с банковской карты, что тоже есть не везде.
