Marshalek suggested that this is how the analytics service is taking revenge on him for recent criticism.

“Merry Christmas to you CoinMarketCap. You dropped our rating a week after I pointed out a last mistake to you. On CoinGecko we are in 2-3 place, you have 15 – m. Guys, you know where to look for accurate market data “

India is trying to lobby for a bill to ban cryptocurrencies

Концерты в метавселенных могут стать тем шагом, который позволит ускорить адаптацию к ним

Not so long ago in India passed 15 National Convention Swadeshi Jagran Manch ( SJM). This party is called the economic arm of the nationalist group Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), which supports government forces – the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

A resolution was signed at the congress to completely ban private cryptocurrencies. Party members also demanded that the authorities sign a law on the accelerated emission of digital currency by the country’s Central Bank.

With this in mind, experts believe that the authorities will not agree to a complete ban on cryptocurrencies in India anytime soon. Although there are prerequisites for this.

“This is just a recommendation. The government will take it into account, as well as the opinion of other organizations. But members of the ruling party have their own thoughts on this matter. ”

Miami has grown into the crypto capital of the southern United States over the past year. The head of the city actively supports new blockchain projects and even receives his salary in BTC.

The event was later broadcast in different meta-universes. And that’s the core business of Animal Concerts. The company has already signed contracts with several world-class performers.

Something similar happened in August. Then Ariana Grande held a virtual concert as part of the Fortnite gaming project. And it went with a resounding success. Thousands of viewers, 25 million dollars in income and almost no costs.

“The artist enters the green studio. Next, we record the performance and digitize it. The result is an avatar, a personal reflection of the performer, which we upload to one of the blockchain-based virtual worlds, ” explains Animal Concerts CEO Colin Fitzpatrick.
