Jack Dorsey confirmed he's stepping down from his role as Twitter CEO, while Meta lost its crypto chief as the head of the Novi wallet David Marcus decided to step aside. Speaking of Dorsey, Square is now Block and Square Crypto is Spiral, and speaking of Facebook – no, it didn’t revere its crypto ad ban.

In El Salvador, mainstream analysts criticized the 2022 budget plans and the bitcoin bond ambitions. The SBI Holdings CEO said that China is currently leading the CBDC race ahead of the US and Europe, while a report found that Asia has for the first time fallen behind the US by the number of crypto startups that raised capital.
