NEAR Balkans’ Tekuno and Mastercard Team Up for Gamified NFT Experience

NEAR Foundation is thrilled to announce that Tekuno, one of the most innovative NEAR Balkans Hub projects, recently teamed up with Mastercard to serve up an incredibly unique real-life NFT experience. Attendees at the recent Money Motion (MoMo) Fintech conference in Zagreb, Croatia got a taste of how Web3 and NEAR can help brands reach new audiences with blockchain gamification.

The NFT activation provided MoMo visitors with a gamified experience through which they could gather evidence of their participation at the conference and various NFTs — a concept called Proof of Doings (PODs).

NEAR Digital Collective Legal Framework

To help accelerate real-world value creation in the NEAR ecosystem, the NEAR community has launched the NEAR Community Purpose Trust (for ease referred to in the remainder of this post as the ‘NEAR Community Treasury’). The NEAR Community Treasury is intended to serve as a decentralised treasury for the NEAR ecosystem that will allocate funds to support various grassroots initiatives. The launch of the NEAR Community Treasury has been championed by the Governance Working Group (‘GWG’), a group focussing on ecosystem governance initiatives as part of the NEAR Digital Collective (‘NDC’). The NDC is an ambitious grassroots initiative that brings together users, projects, stakeholders and partners of the NEAR ecosystem to promote self-governance, aiming to empower the ecosystem to collectively make decisions on everything from funding to elected representatives and more. It is a significant step towards an even further decentralised network. The NEAR Community Treasury leverages an innovative legal framework that builds on work that has already been done utilising Guernsey Special Purpose Trust frameworks elsewhere in the industry. The NEAR community hopes that this framework should help to bring much-needed clarity to participants in decentralised autonomous organisations (‘DAOs’). Below for discussion purposes only is a high-level summary of some of the key features of the NEAR Community Treasury framework. &mdas...


Biggest Movers: XRP Remains Near Multi-Month High on Monday

    XRP remained near a multi-month high to start the week, despite cryptocurrency markets mostly tracking lower. The global market cap has fallen by 1.58% as of writing, due to today's red wave. Litecoin was a notable token to fall, dropping by nearly 5%.XRP XRP, formerly ripple, remained near a multi-month high on Monday, despite today's bearish sentiment. XRP/USD rose to a peak of $0.5447 to start the week, which is marginally lower than Sunday's high at $0.5466. As a result of this, ripple remains close to its highest level since March 30, which saw markets peak at $0.5575. Overall, the drop off from Sunday comes as traders opt to secure gains, which coincides with the relative strength index (RSI) dropping out of a support point. Price strength fell below the floor at 69.00 earlier in the day, and is currently tracking at 67.75. Should momentum continue in this direction, XRP bears will likely target a floor at $0.5090. Litecoin (LTC) On the other hand, litecoin (LTC) was one of Monday's biggest losers, as prices fell by as much as 5%. Following a high of $96.36 on Sunday, LTC/USD sank to an intraday bottom at the $91.79 level. This drop sees litecoin fall for a second consecutive session, after a false breakout of a ceiling at $96.00 Looking at the chart, prices were relatively overbought, with the RSI hovering close to a ceiling at 62.00, prior to the decline.

DOGE/USD fell to an intraday low of $0.06957 earlier on Friday, hours after trading at a peak of $0.07268.

Ron Paul States Federal Reserve's 'Decade of Near 0% Rates' Caused Today...

    Former House Representative Ron Paul has presented his stance when it comes to the financial crisis that the U.S. is currently facing. Paul stated that the continued application of quantitative easing (QE), a policy used to increase the money supply, and the decades of almost null interest rates, are what nurtured the current financial crisis the U.S. is facing. Ron Paul Believes Federal Reserve's Policies Created Today's US Financial Crisis Ron Paul, former representative and presidential candidate, has recently talked about the financial crisis the U.S. is facing. According to him, the policies that the Federal Reserve applied to maintain a welfare state at the cost of creating deficits have created today's financial hardships for the country. Paul stated: Today's financial hardships stem from the Fed's decade of near 0% rates and quantitative easing (QE). These created a decade's worth of uneconomic investments. Every bad idea imaginable received funding. Paul criticized loose monetary policies he says allowed bad debt to be created with credit going to non-profitable investments, and this situation is now becoming unsustainable to the tightening of economic conditions. Paul explained that 'as much as a 'hangover' after the consumption of too much alcohol is painful, so is it painful when a fake prosperity crashes with economic reality.' 'The Fed Is Unconstitutional' but Part of the Solution Paul, a longtime critic of the validity of the existence of the U.S. ... read More

Bitcoin's Next Target Stands Near $36,000: Matrixport Data

    According to data from the crypto financial service platform Matrixport, the narrowing wedge that has been in formation for the past three weeks is about to break to the upside. Such a trend could project a move higher by an equal amount to the range at which the triangle started to form. A breakout could lead to a 6,100-point move higher in the price of Bitcoin, which establishes a target of $35,000-$36,000. Such an uptrend would represent nearly 20% gains from the current price. Matrixport's research highlighted the Fed raising interest rates by another 25bps, which is believed to be the last hike for this cycle. This could potentially set up the crypto market for another strong rally. Simultaneously, the banking sector has been hit by a number of failures that require liquidity injections and government guarantees for any acquiring party. Many experts believe Bitcoin could prosper amid the ongoing banking crisis in the United States. Moreover, in the recent earnings season for companies in the country, stock buybacks appeared to be resuming. In fact, the buybacks are expected to hit $1 trillion this year. This trend could prove beneficial for not just stocks but also risk assets such as crypto. Despite reclaiming $29k, Bitcoin's trading volume has been on a decline. However, the report also noted that 'the path higher sees only limited resistance.' Another important factor that suggests an uptrend is the transactions on the Bitcoin network that reached a record high. The ... read More

The meme coin has been volatile in recent sessions, after a week-long bull run was snapped on Wednesday. Looking at the chart, today's candlestick has printed a large doji, with dogecoin now trading close to its open price. In addition to this, the relative strength index (RSI) has found a floor at the 53.00 mark, which has helped maintain the uncertainty. Should this floor give way, there is a good chance that DOGE will move towards a support point at $0.08000. Litecoin (LTC) Litecoin (LTC) traded near a three-week low in today's session, as the token moved below $100.00. Following a high of $101.95 on Wednesday, LTC/USD plunged to a low of $89.38 earlier today.

Locals on Edge About the Construction of a Crypto Miner Near McLouth, Ka...

    Most residents of McLouth, Kansas, reportedly criticized the potential construction of a cryptocurrency data center about a mile and a half north of the town.  Their main concerns are that the facility will harm the local environment and be very loud.  Not a Warm Welcome According to recent coverage, many residents of the small town of McLouth have frowned upon the possible construction of a cryptocurrency data processing center on top of a nearby natural gas field. Paul Nissen - a local of the town - explained more about the location: 'What I have heard is that this is coming to our area, about a mile and a half north of where we're at right now. They're going to be providing their own generators to power it. The generators are going to be powered by natural gas that they're going to be sucking out of the natural gas storage field.' He also warned that the facility could be quite noisy and burn the energy reserves of the region, causing pollution. On the other hand, Roger Dahlby - an engineer working alongside Crypto Colo Center to build the data center - assured it will be a source of renewable energy. He further believes the firm will provide job opportunities for the town, which has a population of fewer than 900 people.  Despite those benefits, the majority remain against the idea. Edith Williams - another McLouth resident - said she recently settled in the area and loved it the way it is. She vowed to do everything within her power to keep the crypto... read More

Bitcoin Hash Rate at Near All-Time High despite Rising Mining Difficulty

    The Bitcoin hash rate is trending at near all-time highs, per on-chain data on January 20, 2023. Bitcoin Hash Rate at 274 EH/s According to streams from BitInfoCharts, the Bitcoin network currently has a hash rate of 274 EH/s, up by almost one percent in the past 24 hours. Even at this pace, the hash rate is down from January 16 highs of 302 EH/s. Hash rate is the measure of computing power dedicated to BTC mining. As a proof-of-work platform, the Bitcoin network depends on a community of node operators using Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) gear for block confirmation and security. ASICs are special nodes explicitly designed to mine cryptocurrencies in proof-of-work networks using, among others, the SHA-256 consensus algorithm. ASICs that can mine BTC can also be used to mine its forks, adhering to a proof-of-work system, including Bitcoin Cash. For confirming a block, a miner is rewarded with BTC. The amount of computing power channeled to the Bitcoin network often fluctuates depending on many factors, including the cost of scarce gear, often from Bitmain, and the price of BTC. In recent years, chipset manufacturers, led by Bitmain, have been tuning their equipment, making them more efficient in power consumption. At the same time, they are packing them with more power. Accordingly, the latest BTC ASICs can dispense more computing power. As an illustration, the Bitmain Antminer S19 XP released in July 2022 can produce 140 TH/s while using 3010W.... read More

NEAR Struggles As Bulls Aim To Flip $1.45 Resistance Into Support

    NEAR, the native crypto of Near Protocol, seems to continue mirroring the trajectory of Bitcoin, one of the main driving forces of the cryptocurrency industry. The largest crypto asset boasting a total market capitalization of $320.76 billion has so far failed to establish a strong upward momentum that will enable it to exit 2022 with a higher value.

These On-Chain Indicators Suggest Bitcoin's Bottom Draws Near

    Bitcoin and crypto markets are a full year into bear territory, and it has been about that time when the cycle bottom occurs. During the previous bear market, it came in December 2018, a year after the Bitcoin price peak. This time around, BTC has fallen 75% from its peak a year ago, and bottom signals are mounting up.
