More Crypto Meltdowns, Filling Bitcoin Coffers, Strict Regulation and 20 Crypto Jokes


This week in crypto: as bitcoin was playing around USD 20K and analysts warned of further downside, bitcoin funds saw the largest outflows on record ‘by a wide margin’ last week, and while the worst may be behind us, more crypto meltdowns could be seen soon. MicroStrategy bought the dip and added another BTC 480 to its coffers, and El Salvador's Nayib Bukele bought the dip too. Mike Novogratz said that he was hoping bitcoin would stay above USD 30,000 and admitted that Terra’s model was unsustainable, Vitalik Buterin tweeted that EOS stands for “Ethereum on Steroids” as the EOS team says they’ll be making a comeback, Anonymous vowed to look into Do Kwon’s entire history since he entered crypto in a bid to expose his alleged crimes, and Tether CTO repeated that Tether is fully backed and never failed a redemption.

A court ordered the liquidation of Three Arrows Capital, Harmony offered the Horizon Bridge hacker USD 1m in bounty for the return of USD 100m in stolen funds, and CoinFLEX aimed to turn the debt of a "high integrity" individual into the rvUSD token in order to fund other customers' withdrawals, but then they said this person is Roger Ver and that he owes them USDC 47m, which Ver denied. Nansen said Celsius’ positions became healthier and Three Arrows Capital was a 'victim of contagion', the FTX CEO SBF said that some smaller exchanges are ‘too far gone,’ ‘insolvent,’ and unlikely to be ‘saved’. Meanwhile, OpenSea warned their users that their emails were most likely leaked while Meta launched NFT support on Facebook

South Korean police are investigating allegations that a domestic BTC and ETH mining “pool” is a scam, a court ruled that the domestic crypto exchange that hosted a scammer’s wallet is ‘not liable’ for the victim’s losses, and K-Bank may have to postpone IPO. While the EU institutions reached a provisional agreement on the controversial 'unhosted wallets' regulation, they also imposed new strict crypto regulations. The regulatory fog remained thick as the SEC chief didn’t mention ethereum as a commodity, but did not say bitcoin is the only one either. Speaking of the SEC, Grayscale sued them. The US Fed Chair said central bankers now “understand better how little we understand about inflation”, the G7 inadvertently made the case for bitcoin with a new move to ban imports of Russian gold, a Swedish central banker said CBDC is “an investment” to protect the fiat monetary system and that cash will soon be history, and the Kazakh President said the government must make ‘favorable’ conditions for crypto industry development.

Also, it seems that Three Arrows CEO Zhu Su is trying to sell his luxury mansion in Singapore, while the FATF has increased its pressure on virtual asset service providers.

Let’s laugh at some jokes now.
