1. BITCOIN RECEIVES A SERIES OF POSITIVE SIGNALS
Early this week, Bitcoin received a range of good news in the “massification” process of expanding knowledge and the application of this largest digital currency by market capitalization in the crypto market.
The first positive signal is that VISA offers Bitcoin debit cards in Brazil, allowing users to pay for some basic transactions and get rewards though every purchase made with the cards.
Furthermore, several universities in the Philippines have incorporated knowledge of the crypto market and Bitcoin into their curricula or individual courses to help students access blockchain and the crypto market.
Besides, 127-year-old Sullivan Bank has begun to provide Bitcoin transaction services, which is good news for the development of Bitcoin as well as cryptocurrencies.
2. “FEI” STABLECOIN MAY CEASE ITS OPERATION
Mr. Joey Santoro, founder of Fei Labs, announced that the FEI architecture will be discontinued due to potential future regulatory risks.
The current FEI’s peg is managed by the protocol-controlled value (PCV), a mechanism for algorithmically managing stablecoins by backing tokens. Mr. Santoro also published a proposal to convert FEI to DAI and distribute PCV among TRIBE holders (governance tokens of the FEI Protocol project).
