The representatives of crypto exchanges Gemini and Nasdaq had a closed meeting during which they discussed the possible cooperation in the future.

However, it turned out that the cooperation is too weak of a word in this situation, the exchanges might become a joint venture. This will be beneficial for both of the exchanges, since they will become more liquid and will be able to list more digital coins.

The information came from an anonymous source. He/she stated:

Nasdaq and Gemini have gotten very, very comfortable with each other.”

We would like to remind you that there were rumours that the Winklevoss brothers tried to bribe authorities to get an approval for Gemini.

uefa launches a blockchain app

The UEFA wants the fans to have the smoothest experience ever. Right now, buying tickets for football matches is one of the most problematic areas: tickets are often falsified and stolen, moreover they are very hard to get. That’s why the organization is researching new technologies to fix the problem.

UEFA has recently announced about the testing of blockchain for developing a ticketing app. The app works via bluetooth on electronic devices and will be used when entering the stadiums.

The report said: “Fine-tuning and improvements took place at several test events, and the system was first used for 50% of the tickets distributed to the general public for the 2018 UEFA Europa League final between Atlético and Marseille in Lyon.

The Association will keep on developing its blockchain-based app, and, hopefully, football fans will soon have an opportunity to use it.

Buterin, Winklevoss and Others: The Future of the Digital Currency World According to Major Crypto Personalities 621

experts opinions on crypto

The crypto world has entered the new stage of its development, it has always been volatile, but these couple of weeks have been absolutely crazy: coins are jumping up and down, Bitcoin ETF is on its way, blockchain is taking over the world.

No doubt, crypto specialists and financial experts have a lot to say. Today we came up with a compilation of sayings from the stars of the cryptocurrency universe that we found particularly interesting and important.

The CEO of the crypto exchange Gemini, Tyler Winklevoss believes that the acceptance of cryptocurrency in the world as a means of payment equal to fiat will not happen in the next couple of years:

The vast majority of Wall Street firms are still not participating in the cryptocurrency market, which remains primarily a retail-driven market. This will change over time, but it will take time.

Pantera Capital’s CEO is way more optimistic on this issue. He sees great potential in the blockchain technology, and digital coins, according to him, are “superior form of currency.

Ethereum’s founder Vitalik Buterin wants cryptocurrencies to become more user-friendly and common in the everyday life. He also thinks it may become possible only in case the proper regulatory framework for crypto is developed by the state governments.

I want to be able to walk into a convenience store, get a card and pay a small fee to start using Bitcoin Cash,” he said.

The last, but certainly not least, is the CEO of BitMEX, Arthur Hayes, who has some serious doubts concerning Ethereum. According to his calculations, the price of the world’s #2 coin will drop lower than $100.

It is this moment,” he added, “that Ether goes from a 3-digit to a 2-digit shitcoin.

Although we are sure that experts know what they are talking about, the crypto world is way too unpredictable. We can only wait and see whether the abovementioned predictions turn out to be true or not.

An AT&T User Accused the Company of His Crypto Losses Amounting to $224 Million 463

crypto investor sues at&t

America’s largest mobile services operator AT&T received a lawsuit from one of its customers. Michael Terpin is sure, the company’s non-fulfillment of its duties led to the theft of 224 million dollars in crypto from him.

The plaintiff argues that somebody came to an AT&T office and stole his identity by getting hold of his telephone number which basically gave the criminal full access to all accounts. The fault of AT&T is in the fact that the employees had to demand an identity verification from the person who took the crypto or a secret password. This could have prevented the accident, however, no one even tried to stop the thief.

The theft victim described the situation by saying:

What AT&T did was like a hotel giving a thief with a fake ID a room key and a key to the room safe to steal jewelry in the safe from the rightful owner.

We would like to remind you that Playboy has filed a lawsuit against the crypto firm accusing it of fraud.
