    The anti-crypto conference hopes attendees will get a chance to speak face-to-face with government officials to share their skepticism about the industry. In the middle of crypto’s latest bear market, industry and asset class detractors have rallied together to share their skepticism and network with lawmakers at their own anti-crypto conference.Whereas most crypto conferences exist to promote the latest developments on the cutting edge of the industry, crypto critic journalist Amy Castor said in her July 3 blog post that the Crypto Policy Symposium promises a way for disgruntled nay-sayers to voice their negativity. Crypto skeptics step up lobbying efforts with their first conference – Amy Castor— your #1 source for absurdist true crime (@davidgerard) July 3, 2022 Author and symposium organizer Stephen Diehl explained to Castor that this first major anti-crypto event aims to provide the community a way to speak directly with policymakers on how they believe the crypto industry should be dealt with.“The main goal of the symposium, as Diehl explained it to me, is to give policymakers access to the information and material they need to make informed decisions around crypto regulation.”A common perception among skeptics like Castor and crypto proponents is that government officials lack a solid foundational understanding of how cryptocurrency works. As Castor notes, government officials are “woefully uninformed.” The similarities may end there as proponents would tout the benefits of the technology and the industry. In contrast, the skeptics will point…Read More

    Argentina has been in a long-standing battle against rising inflation and a continued decline of the peso against the U.S. dollar. Argentina, a country with one of the highest crypto adoption rates in the world, saw the price of dollar-pegged stablecoins surge across exchanges on Saturday after the abrupt resignation of its Economy Minister, Martin Guzman. The minister’s shock exit, confirmed on his Twitter account on July 3 via a seven-page letter, threatens to further destabilize a struggling economy battling high inflation and a depreciating national currency. According to data from Criptoya, the cost of buying Tether (USDT) using Argentinian pesos (ARS) is currently 271.4 ARS through the Binance exchange, which is around a 12% premium from before the resignation announcement, and a 116.25% premium compared to the current fiat exchange rate of USD/ARS. The local crypto price tracking website has also revealed a similar jump in other USD-pegged stablecoins, including Dai (DAI), Binance USD (BUSD), Pax Dollar (USDP), and Dollar on Chain (DOC). Argentineans have been piling into crypto as a means to hedge against the country’s rising inflation and a continued fall of the Argentinean peso against the USD dollar. In 2016, before inflation really took its toll, one USD was only able to buy around 14.72 Argentinean pesos. However, six years later, one USD is able to buy as many as 125.5 ARS. The extra premium on US-dollar pegged stablecoins is the result of a law passed on…Read More

The Central African Republic (CAR) has launched its new government-backed Sango crypto hub initiative to foster the development of the local digital asset sector. The Sango project follows the CAR’s adoption of Bitcoin (BTC) as legal tender in April. The initiative aims to attract businesses and global crypto talent/enthusiasts, ramp up local BTC adoption and oversee the rollout of crypto regulatory frameworks and infrastructure. A metaverse platform dubbed The Crypto Island and Sango Coin is also in the works.

    Sam Bankman-Fried said that crypto miners did not fit into the company’s core strategy and there is no synergy from an acquisition standpoint. Sam Bankman-Fried, the founder of crypto exchange FTX, has calmed speculation that the company is exploring acquisitions of distressed crypto mining companies, clarifying on Twitter on Saturday that they “aren’t really looking into the space.”“Really not sure why the meme about FTX and mining companies is spreading, the actual quote was that we *aren’t* really looking into the space,” clarified Bankman-Fried on Twitter on July 2. Speculation that the company was on the lookout for mining firms came from an interview with Bloomberg on July 1, after the FTX founder said he did not want to discount the possibility of a “compelling opportunity” in the mining industry, stating: “There might come along a really compelling opportunity for us — I definitely don’t want to discount that possibility.”However, the quote appears to have been taken out of context, forcing SBF to clarify that the firm is “not particularly looking at miners” but is “happy to have conversations” with mining companies. er to be clear I said roughly "meh not particularly looking at miners, but sure, happy to have conversations with any companies"— SBF (@SBF_FTX) July 1, 2022 Bankman-Fried also stated during the interview that crypto miners had no fit into the company’s core strategy and that he saw no synergy from an acquisition standpoint.“I don’t see any…Read More
