EMAX Token Skyrockets 95% After Kim Kardashian Agreed to Pay the $1.26 M...

    Yesterday, the renowned model, businesswoman, and one of the most popular people on social media - Kim Kardashian - made the crypto headlines by agreeing to pay $1.26 million to promote Ethereum Max (EMAX). Shortly after the news, the token's valuation headed north and is currently 95% up daily. Earlier this year, a lawsuit filed in California claimed that the reality TV star Kim Kardashian and the boxing champion Floyd Mayweather inappropriately promoted a digital currency known as EthereumMax (EMAX). According to the prosecutors, advertising the token (considered by the US Securities and Exchange Commission as crypto security) could have resulted in significant losses for investors. It is worth noting that Kardashian, who has over 330 million followers on Instagram, received $250,000 to popularize EMAX on her account. Yesterday (October 3), the model agreed to pay $1.26 million in penalties and interest for misleading her fans to invest in an unregulated financial asset. Apparently, though, there is no such thing as bad publicity, as the token's price reacted immediately. Source: CoinGecko Since the latest developments, the price of EMAX has skyrocketed by over 95% and is currently trading at $0.000000008566. Its trading volume for the past 24 hours surpassed $280,000, while prior to the agreement with the SEC, it was around $13,000. At one point last night, the token was worth $0.000000009586, which was a 130% rise compared to yesterday's figures. The post EMAX Token S... read More

The securities regulator also charged crypto influencer Ian Balina for promoting crypto tokens without disclosing compensation received.SEC's Cease-and-Desist Order Against Unregistered Crypto Firm The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced Monday that it has issued a cease-and-desist order against Sparkster Ltd. and its CEO, Sajjad Daya, 'for the unregistered offer and sale of crypto asset securities from April 2018 through July 2018.'

In a settlement with the SEC, Sparkster agreed to destroy its remaining crypto tokens, request the removal of its tokens from trading platforms, and publish the SEC's order on its website and social media channels. Daya agreed to refrain from participating in crypto asset securities offerings for five years. The SEC detailed: Sparkster and Daya agreed to settle and to collectively pay more than $35 million into a fund for distribution to harmed investors.

Ukrainian Supermarket Chain to Accept Cryptocurrencies Through Binance P...

    Varus, a retailer with over 100 supermarket stores across Ukraine, has partnered with the world's leading digital asset exchange, Binance, to launch cryptocurrency payments. Customers will now be able to order groceries online and cover the bill through a Binance Pay wallet.Ukrainians to Shop Online From Varus Supermarket Using Crypto Binance, the largest cryptocurrency exchange by daily trading volume, and Ukraine's supermarket chain Varus have announced a partnership that will allow Ukrainian shoppers to purchase food and other goods online with digital coins.

Crypto Yields Are Starting to Pay Less Than Government Bonds

    The once notoriously high yields provided by crypto lending services are now struggling to compete with more traditional, safer options. While yields for 3-month treasury bills slowly rise, AAVE’s lending rates on USDC have slumped massively since May. Rates for the two products have now crossed one another, meaning government debt is offering a better payout than its decentralized competition. High Risk, Low Reward? According to data provided by Bloomberg and Aavewatch, USDC deposited into AAVE V2 on Ethereum now yields just 0.2% per year – down from 2.4% in mid May. By contrast, US 3 month treasury bills have tripled from 1% yield to 3% in that same period.  The increase is largely due to Federal Reserve activity, which has driven up yield in every sector besides crypto. Digital asset markets still largely track the stock market, which has naturally tanked in response to the central bank’s hawkish policy. That same policy has sparked a steady upward climb for short term treasury bills.  The sharpest drop in yields on AAVE appeared to occur between May 13th and 22nd, dropping from 2.4% to 0.9%. This was only a week after Terra’s collapse, which helped trigger a massive contagious meltdown across the stablecoin lending arena in the following months.  Yet this by no means signals lower risk involved with crypto lenders. Unlike traditional markets, crypto yields are not determined by risk profile, but by trading volumes. According to DeFi ... read More

Dubai Luxury Hotel Palazzo Versace Allows Guests to Pay in Crypto

    Guests staying at Palazzo Versace Dubai have, since September 7, had an option to settle payment for services rendered via cryptocurrency. The hotel also plans to add the crypto payment option to its e-commerce platforms to enable guests to pay for gift vouchers using digital currencies. Cryptocurrency Infrastructure Provider A luxury hotel based in Dubai, Palazzo Versace, recently said it would allow guests to pay for services offered at its premises using cryptocurrency. As stated in a Business Traveller report, starting on September 7, guests staying at Palazzo Versace Dubai are able to settle their respective hotel bills using bitcoin, ethereum, and binance coin (BNB). According to the report, Binance, one of the world's largest crypto exchange platforms, is the luxury hotel's 'cryptocurrency infrastructure provider.' Besides allowing guests to use crypto when paying for dining, stays and spa experiences, the hotel will also accept crypto payments from guests using its e-commerce platforms to buy gift vouchers and items in the flower shop. By accepting crypto, Palazzo Versace Dubai joins the growing list of businesses operating in the country that have embraced cryptocurrency.

Argentinean Province Allows Residents to Pay Taxes in USDT (Report)

    The authorities of the Mendoza province reportedly enabled citizens to pay government fees and taxes in cryptocurrencies. The region's tax administration described the move as 'the strategic objective of modernization and innovation,' which could give 'taxpayers different means to comply with their tax obligations.' Contrary to Mendoza's pro-crypto stance, Argentina's central bank is not so much in favor of the industry. Earlier this year, it banned domestic financial institutions from facilitating digital asset services. According to a local report, settling taxes in cryptocurrencies instead of pesos became possible in one of the largest provinces in Argentina - Mendoza. Initially, the region's authorities will accept payments in Tether (USDT), while at a later stage, it plans to add more digital assets as an option. Taxpayers can use popular crypto wallets such as Binance, Buenbit, Bitso, Ripio, Bybit, and Lemon Cash. In April this year, the lawmakers of Buenos Aires also considered something similar. Mayor Horacio Rodriguez Larreta stated that the capital aims to digitize its administration processes, adding that blockchain technology will play a key role. He also hinted that citizens might get the chance to pay their taxes in cryptocurrencies in the near future: 'And we are going to work to facilitate the payment of taxes, the ninth measure of this plan. Together with the leading companies, we are working so that those who wish can pay their taxes in cryptocurrencies.' ... read More

Crypto processing platform Calypso Pay launches mass payouts for Tron (T...

    Calypso Pay, an all-in-one crypto processing & acquiring platform, today and announced the launch of Tron (TRX) mass payouts in partnership with WatchData, a platform that helps web3 developers seamlessly interact with the blockchain. The solution allows customers to quickly set up Tron payouts to tens of thousands of addresses while saving both time and money on fees.  When you regularly have to send money to thousands of addresses, mass payouts are a more cost-effective solution. Yet customers face multiple problems when creating mass payouts by themselves: they take up a lot of space in the memo, can block the execution of other transactions on the address, and the transaction itself might be expensive unless you set it up in the right way. Aiming to take care of all these problems, Calypso Pay offers mass payments via smart contracts, mass payouts in one transaction (for BTC and DOGE), and even an option of launching mass payouts by uploading a CSV file — all options come with low fees and significantly speed up the financial operations. Benefits of Mass Payouts via Tron (TRX): Saves up to 10 hours, and reduces the risk of making a mistake during a transaction to 0%. Increases savings as the number of recipients increases: for 10 transactions, the savings is 55%, while for 100 or more transactions — 99%. To provide a better experience, Calypso Pay partnered with WatchData, a flagship infrastructure product of TheWatch company — WatchData monitors... read More

ADA Pay plugin now available on open-source ERP and CRM suite Odoo

    COTI, a DAG-based blockchain platform for payment networks, announced today that Rodolfo Miranda, one of the winners of COTI's Catalyst Fund 7, has completed an ADA Pay plugin on Odoo (On Demand Open Object), an open-source solution for business applications with more than 7 million users. One of the first necessary steps in bringing ADA to the masses is to grow the ADA Pay gateway solution. The ADA payment system for businesses, built on the Cardano blockchain, allows merchants to accept ADA as a payment method with instant settlement. The goal of this project was to develop and deliver an application for the Odoo platform that acts as a payment acquirer that accepts ADA for payments using the ADA Pay API. Previously, COTI shared news of another project Catalyst team, Carl Henry Global, that created an ADA Pay plugin for 8 different shopping platforms including WordPress, Joomla, and WooCommerce. “Delivering this project can’t be more streamlined. The ADA Pay API just simplifies the development process. Not only is it well documented, but also the COTI team was prompt to give us support to all of our questions and concerns. I really appreciate COTI professionalism and dedication.” - Rodolfo Miranda, ADA Plugin creator for Odoo As part of the COTI — Project Catalyst challenge, developers were invited to create ADA Pay plugin solutions ready for integration on different e-commerce platforms. 5 out of 16 submissions were funded. 'COTI’s development... read More

Cryptocurrency: This Messaging App Lets You Pay With Crypto

    Messaging apps are commonly used for online communication. However, things have progressed to the point where such apps now include a wide range of integrations. Online communication has gone beyond the mere purpose of messaging to include sharing media, contacts, and documents. The most recent trend is the integration of online payments. For example, Messaging applications incorporate payment systems, allowing users to transfer money with only a few clicks. Thus, although fiat payments dominate the present scene, a new age of crypto payments is emerging steadily. The benefits of speed, low transaction costs, decentralization, and borderless transactions make crypto an ideal instrument for messaging apps. As a result, big companies like Apple and Meta are considering introducing cryptocurrency payments into their apps. And two of the most popular messaging apps, Signal and Telegram, have already integrated cryptocurrency payments. However, the bulk of innovation is happening at the emerging projects that aim to power the future of in-chat micropayments. TokLok, for example, is a decentralized, crypto-native messaging platform offering a convenient and secure online communication service. TokLok: The Decentralized Instant Messenger App TokLok is a blockchain-based messenger developed for fully confidential communication among businesses and individuals. The app’s most intriguing feature is its strong encryptions to secure users’ data. Moreover, it provides adequate... read More

Meta Launches Meta Pay, a Metaverse Dedicated Digital Wallet

    Meta, the metaverse-based platform, has announced the launch of a new wallet directed to support value interaction in the metaverse. Meta Pay, a rebrand of the former Facebook Pay service, will keep fulfilling the same functions that Facebook Pay did in the past, but will be developed as a universal way of paying for goods and services using digital identities in the metaverse. Facebook Pay Rebrands to Meta Pay Meta is trying to solve the problem of transaction and value interactions in the metaverse. The company announced the launch of a new digital wallet that will support the economy of users in the upcoming iteration of Meta's metaverse. The wallet, dubbed Meta Pay, will be an evolution of what's known today as Facebook Pay, still supporting the array of payments it handles currently, but with a new focus on digital identity and proof of ownership. According to Meta (formerly Facebook) CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Meta Pay will be a solution to two issues in the metaverse: accessibility to digital goods and proof of ownership. About this, he stated: In the future, there will be all sorts of digital items you might want to create or buy - digital clothing, art, videos, music, experiences, virtual events, and more. Proof of ownership will be important, especially if you want to take some of these items with you across different services. Portability and Standardization in the Metaverse Zuckerberg stated that ideally, everything purcha... read More

Spritz Finance Bill Pay Beta Launches on Polygon Network

    {PRESS RELEASE - Greenwich, Connecticut, 14th June 2022] Spritz Finance, a Web3 personal finance platform for decentralized finance (DeFi) users to easily pay their bills with crypto, announced today that the company’s closed beta for its bill pay product is now available to all Polygon Network users, beginning in the United States. Polygon’s ecosystem creates opportunities for Spritz customers to earn more on-chain and generate passive income streams through DeFi, play-to-earn games, NFTs, and their metaverse assets, all of which will soon be connected through Spritz to pay off monthly expenses, such as mortgage and rent, utilities, credit cards, student loans or even a Netflix subscription. Chris Sheehan, who founded Spritz and serves as the company’s CEO, said the integration with Polygon was a great fit for Spritz. “The future of work is on-chain,” he said. “People everywhere are increasingly viewing blockchain as a place to save, invest, and earn income-whether through yield farming, P2E games, or NFTs. The missing link for these folks is a way to use their on-chain earnings to fund their real-life expenses. Spritz is the first web3 native bill pay service, and we’re so proud to be launching on Polygon.” By launching on Polygon, Spritz will be able to program payments from any Polygon smart contract directly to any US bill pay account, including banks, credit card companies, and utilities providers, both nationally and regi... read More

Nigerian Court Sentences Crypto Fraudster to One Year in Jail, Accused G...

    A Nigerian court has convicted and sentenced a man to one year in prison who is accused of duping an unsuspecting cryptocurrency investor. On its charge sheet, the prosecution said that the man had contravened Nigeria's anti-fraud laws and hence should be punished accordingly. Fake Cryptocurrency Investment Scheme A court in Nigeria has convicted a man accused of using a bogus cryptocurrency platform to defraud $680 from an unsuspecting investor, a report has said. In its ruling, the Port Harcourt Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) said the man, Obu Ebibo, whose alias is Kenneth Gibson, must serve one year in jail. The court however said the accused has an option to pay a fine of $1,180 (N500,000) which he can deposit into the government's consolidated revenue account. According to a PM News report that details the accused's alleged crimes, by committing the alleged offenses, Ebibo was in contravention of Nigeria's anti-fraud laws. 'That you Obu Gabriel Ebibo (alias Kenneth Gibson) on or about the 1st November 2021, in Port Harcourt, within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court with intent to defraud obtained an aggregate sum of Six Hundred and Eighty United States Dollars ($680.00 USD) on the pretence that, the money was meant for cryptocurrency investment, a pretext you knew to be false and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 1 (2) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud-Related Offences Act 2006 and punishable under Secti... read More

Bitcoin Miners in Washington Will Have To Pay 29% More For Their Electri...

    Bitcoin mining is about to become way harder for US-based miners, not because of the automatic difficulty adjustments but because of local politicians. This time, the state of Washington announced a significant price increase that could make many miners consider moving to another state or even country. On June 01, Chelan County, one of the 39 counties in Washington, announced the implementation of a new energy tariff for Bitcoin miners that will increase the previous rates by 29%. 'Tariff 36,' says that mining companies will have to pay a higher rate than all customers because their electricity consumption is much higher than the standard rate. On the other hand, according to local media, NewsRadio 560 KPQ Douglas County (another county in Washington) does not allow the opening of mining companies due to their high energy consumption, which according to county data, is 25% of the available energy. The New Tariff Was Due to Take Effect at the Beginning of 2022 According to KPQ, the new tariff should have come into effect in early 2022; however, possibly due to all the new rules and regulations being implemented in the country, it was delayed until June. Garry Arseneault, PUD Commissioner, said the new tariff was 'innovative.' He argued that the commission simply created a new rate for this type of demand. Tariff 36 will not be charged immediately to three major mining companies (they did not officially name the companies), as they had made 'significant investments in their ope... read More

After Terra (LUNA) Debacle, Polkadot Founder Urges People to Pay More At...

    The collapse of the much-hyped cryptocurrencies of the Terra ecosystem devastated many investors, but not the investment firms that cashed out right before it all came crashing down. There are many lessons to learn from the failed project as retail traders grapple with devastating losses. Ethereum's co-founder Gavin Wood said that people should pay more attention. At the backdrop of the World Economic Forum in the Swiss Alpine resort of Davos, the executive said, 'I would hope that people pay more attention to what is belying the currency name when they get involved in a community, ecosystem, economy.' In the interview, Wood also said that the internet has no real concept of legality because it is 'something that is determined by sovereign nations.' Observing the market-wide rout, Wood said that 'technology cannot prevent people from making mistakes but can help those who want to understand better the facts of the world, and what they're buying.' LUNA's crash may have gravely exacerbated the declines in the cryptocurrency market this year, but many blockchain companies are breaking stereotypes at the ongoing world economic forum. Web3 is being thrust into the limelight despite the legacy finance world's apparent contempt for the digital asset industry. With crypto being a rather hot topic following TerraUSD's at the world's biggest business tables, International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva hinted at the algorithmic stablecoin TerraUSD and sis... read More

Masterminds Behind South African Bitcoin Ponzi Scheme Told to Pay Back O...

    Masterminds of one of South Africa's biggest bitcoin Ponzi schemes, Mirror Trading International (MTI), have been asked by the scheme's liquidators to pay back over $291 million to cover the scam operation's debts. Liquidators' Influence Liquidators of the South African bitcoin Ponzi scheme, Mirror Trading International (MTI), have issued summonses against eighteen individuals believed to be the masterminds behind the now-defunct scheme. The liquidators want the named individuals to pay back more than $291 million (4,666,077,528 rand) to cover the scheme's debts, a report has said. The move to summon the alleged MTI masterminds comes just a few months after liquidators unsuccessfully tried to have the online bitcoin trading platform declared an unlawful business by a South African court. As per a report by News, the move was frustrated by a slew of late court filings by lawyers representing MTI investors. Investors were reportedly worried that the liquidators' motion would give the latter excessive powers which may jeopardize their chances of recovering their funds. Following this intervention by investors, a South African judge subsequently postponed the hearing to a later date. Masterminds Aware of MTI's Insolvency Meanwhile, a report by Mybroadband suggests that the liquidators have since asked the Pretoria High Court to hold MTI masterminds liable as per the dictates of the Companies Act. In their submission, the liquidators reportedly argued that summonsed i... read More

Warren Buffett Won't Pay $25 for All Bitcoin in the World — ...

    Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett says he won't buy all the bitcoin in the world for $25. Meanwhile, his longtime business partner and right-hand man, Charlie Munger, says bitcoin is stupid and evil, noting that the cryptocurrency makes him look bad.Warren Buffett Explains Why He Won't Buy Bitcoin Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger talked about bitcoin during Berkshire Hathaway's annual shareholders meeting Saturday. Buffett is Berkshire's CEO and chairman of the board. Munger, often known as his right-hand man, is the company's vice chairman of the board. The Oracle of Omaha, famous for saying bitcoin is 'probably rat poison squared,' explained in some detail why he would not buy BTC. He said: Whether it goes up or down in the next year, or five or 10 years, I don't know. But the one thing I'm pretty sure of is that it doesn't produce anything … It's got a magic to it and people have attached magics to lots of things. Buffett gave some examples. He would pay $25 billion for a 1% interest in all the farmland in the United States. He would also pay $25 billion for a 1% interest in all the apartment houses in the country. 'I would write you a check this afternoon,' he affirmed. However, when it comes to buying bitcoin, he detailed: Now if you told me you own all of the bitcoin in the world and you offered it to me for $25, I wouldn't take it because what would I do with it? I'd have to sell it back to you one way or another. It isn't going to do anything. Unlike bitco... read More

Buenos Aires Considers Allowing Locals to Pay Taxes in Crypto

    The mayor of Buenos Aires – Horacio Rodriguez Larreta – indicated that the city will soon start digitizing its administration processes, while blockchain technology will play a key role. Additionally, the political leader hinted that residents could be allowed to pay their taxes in crypto assets instead. Buenos Aires Embracing Crypto The latest megalopolis that might dive deep into the cryptocurrency universe is Argentina’s capital – Buenos Aires. In a recent interview, its mayor – Horacio Rodriguez Larreta – presented a 12-step plan called “Buenos Aires +,” which will aim to transform the city into a digital hub. An important part of the agenda is “the self-sovereign digital identity, which is one of the most innovative tools that are being given in the world so that citizens have their digital identification.” Through an application, locals will be able to authenticate their identity, which will enable them to have access to all their information in one place – their phones. Vaccination certificates, test results, civil registry documents, and birth certificates are some of the examples of documents that should go digital by the end of 2022. The mayor noted that the successful outcome of the initiative requires enhanced security. For that purpose, the authorities intend to embrace blockchain technology: “All this flow of information, which is going to increase exponentially, is going to be protected by ... read More

Buenos Aires Confirms It Plans to Allow Citizens to Pay Taxes With Crypt...

    Horacio Larreta, the head of the government of Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, confirmed that the city will allow its citizens to pay some taxes with cryptocurrencies. This is part of a digitization plan that the city has named 'Buenos Aires+' that seeks to simplify the relationship the city has with citizens. Buenos Aires Government to Introduce Cryptocurrency Tax Payments The government of Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, is planning to allow its citizens to pay some taxes with cryptocurrencies. According to local media, the announcement was made by Horacio Rodriguez Larreta - head of the Buenos Aires government - on a recent Zoom call. This initiative is part of a digitization push the city is planning to execute to broaden the access of citizens to documents and government services. This plan, called 'Buenos Aires+,' seeks to 'simplify and streamline the link with citizens and the city,' according to Larreta. On the importance of blockchain for this digitization push (that seeks to automate 70% of formalities during its first year of implementation), Diego Fernández, secretary of Innovation and Digital Transformation, stated: I believe that blockchain technology will give the government the possibility to make all its acts more transparent and encourage the participation of citizens in a deeper way. This proposal is similar to the one presented by the government of Rio de Janeiro in March, which also announced it wi... read More

Bitcoin Miners in Kazakhstan To Pay Taxes Correlated to BTC Price

    Once considered an attractive country for Chinese Bitcoin miners after the country's crackdown on any BTC mining activity, Kazakhstan now seems to be set to creating new taxes that will negatively impact the industry. On April 14, the Minister of National Economy, Alibek Kuantyrov, said in a government briefing that his team is working on a tax plan that would link tax payments to the valuation of the mined tokens. According to Kuantyrov's statement, first reported by ForkLog, this will help the country financially in tax collection, as it translates into an improvement for the state budget. However, this decision could cause many miners to explore other countries like El Salvador, where the mining tax will be a flat 10% to finance the construction and services of Bitcoin City. 'We are considering increasing the tax burden for miners, at the moment we are also considering linking the tax rate for miners to the value of the cryptocurrency. If the cryptocurrency grows, it will be good for the budget.' Kazakhstan is Less Attractive For Crypto Miners Initially, the Kazakstan government welcomed miners with open arms; however, this stance changed a few months later. The country went from offering one of the cheapest energies in the world for mining to introducing a mining tax of 20 cents per kWh -in one month, the energy cost multiplied by 10- arguing that the energy demand by miners had grown exponentially. But besides the tax, the government also started shutting down many ... read More

NumisMe: Crypto's First Cash Protocol – Pay With Cash and Re...

    PRESS RELEASE. Eugene, Oregon April 15th, 2022: If there was ever a universal truth to which we could all agree, it would be change. An unequivocal reality of the cosmos, change is constant. Despite emotions, thoughts, or actions, change is an unstoppable force for which there is no immovable object. As creatures of comfort and habit, we often go out of our way to avoid or ignore changes, negative and beneficial. The world's financial systems are no exception to this universal law. Technological improvements have progressed the digitization of currency, moving us closer to cashless societies and away from physically held currency. Many people fear this technological shift with our monetary system will be government controlled, leading to the loss of financial freedom. Therefore private and/or decentralized organizations are essential moving forward. These improvements in technology also make innovative tools possible, which can provide people more control and power over their finances than ever before.
