⭐ El Salvador won’t give up on Bitcoin.
The LATAM country famous for being among the first world governments to actually adopt BTC, according to reports, is now buying the dips and growing its BTC holding. It’s also reported that El Salvador authorities set up the National Bitcoin Office (ONBTC) department to expand the crypto regulatory framework and educate citizens on DeFi.
Brands Shifting to Crypto
⭐ Reebok is seen on a Metaverse border.
Seeing Nike and Adidas' success in the Web3 field, the third famous sportswear brand is setting its sights on Metaverse as it applied for a dedicated trademark. According to the application, Reebok intends to deliver its own digital collectibles, an NFT marketplace, virtual clothing, and accessories. Not surprising, though!
⭐ Telegram Crypto Plans announced.
The world's most censorship-free networking service, Telegram, is planning to launch a decentralized exchange (DEX) and a crypto wallet within its messaging app. Apparently, the plans involve TON Blockchain integration, a crypto project once founded by Telegram CEO Pavel Durov himself.
Metaverse and NFT News
⭐ Metaverse is Goblin Moded.
Metaverse almost got awarded as the most popular word of 2022 but lost to a “Goblin mode” This year’s Oxford English Dictionary’s Word of the Year winner was decided by the public. Between “Goblin Mode,” “#IStandWith,” and “metaverse,” voters preferred the former the most. Fair enough! Metaverse time is yet to come 😉
⭐ NFT tokens lead the crypto market.
Axie Infinity, Sandbox, Decentraland, and Ape Coin tokens feature in the weekly top gainers list, according to CoinMarketCap data. AXS is up by 22% over the past 24 hours alone, Decentraland’s MANA has gained 14%, and Ape Coin is pushing to hit a 5$ mark never seen since June this year.
