And, in other, more worthy news:
- A hearing by the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, & Forestry of all things will tee up future regulation with a debate on whether to classify cryptocurrencies as commodities (gold, oil, etc.) or securities (stocks, bonds, et al). So, basically old white men will decide whether fake money is fake money or fake money.
- Days after Coinbase announced a similar (although not similarly widely accepted) feature, Apple announced intentions to integrate crypto into its Apple Pay. If it goes through, crypto would be accepted as currency at 90% of all U.S. retailers by the end of 2022. Big deal? Probably. But about as boring as it is inevitable.
- The Reddit-approved NFT trading card game, Skyweaver, launched today. I had a friend tell me last night she got into NFTs because they reminded her of collecting Yu-Gi-Oh cards in the 5th grade. Well? It’s time to d-d-d-d-d-d-duel.
