CFTC Chairman Claims Interest in Bitcoin Is ‘Generational’, Calls for ‘Respect’ 513

The chairman of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the Commissioner at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) have commented on cryptocurrencies at this week’s Milken Institute Global Conference.

Christopher Giancarlo, chair of the CFTC, likened Bitcoin to the baby boomer generation’s rejection of past societal norms through their experimentation with ‘sex, drugs, and rock and roll.’ Meanwhile Michael Piwowar, commissioner of the SEC, stated explicitly that Bitcoin should not be considered a security, but that most initial coin offerings (ICOs) have been illegally organised and operated according to existing regulations.

Is Bitcoin This Generation’s Rock and Roll?

Giancarlo spoke about Bitcoin during a presentation titled, ‘Financial Regulation: New Era, New Regulators’ on Monday. Rather than dismissing it outright as many associated with traditional finance have, the chair of the CFTC called for ‘respect’ for ‘this generation’s interest’ in Bitcoin. He continued, citing the financial crisis of 2008 as spurring interest in the financial innovation:

“There is something going on here that is generational. Just as the baby boomer generation lost faith in the leaders that came before them and tried to seek a cultural change in those days through sex, drugs and rock and roll, I think there is a generation that also has lost faith in us that led them through the financial crisis and they see technology as a way of disintermediating institutions for which they don’t have a great deal of respect.”

According to a report from Reuters, he surmised the current fascination with cryptocurrencies as being a struggle to fit dated principles of law to ‘new and different applications.’

During the same presentation, Piwowar turned the attendees’ attention to the craze of ICOs.

He stated that he believed every ICO he had personally looked at should be deemed a security. Piwowar then went on to classify securities under three general categories: registered public offerings, exempt offerings, and finally, illegal securities. In his own words:

“If you are not falling into the first two buckets, we’ve said we’re coming after you. Bitcoin itself is not a security but these customised tokens for these initial coin offerings, most of them are. There is some legitimate stuff going that is on and then there is literally the fraud ones.”

For those who are unaware of what the Milken Institute Global Conference is, you can think of it as a global think tank that discusses practical ways to widen access to capital and promote prosperity. They hold various conferences every year with some rather eclectic speakers and panellists.

The institute’s flag ship event, this week’s global conference, featured the likes of primate expert Jane Goodall and five-time Super Bowl Champion Tom Brady, along with more typical speakers from the world of global finance. The comments on cryptocurrencies were just a very small part of the entire event’s program.

Dvision Network Announces New LAND Staking Feature To Help Bolster Virtual Plot Utility 2757

DvisionNetwork

The Dvision Network has recently announced the new ‘LAND Staking Feature’ in their Dvision Metaverse, with the development being finalized to present a new use case to the virtual plot owners. According to the official statement, users who possess Dvision LAND NFT may now stake it and obtain DVG points or additional NFT items via the new LAND staking system. This is a crucial component of the entire project and its ecosystem as Dvision currently has about 10,000 LAND owners, as a result of 3 finalized rounds of the LAND Sales, eager to deliver fascinating and advanced content to Dvision World.

Important details to note

Dvision Network launched a new NFT staking solution to improve the usability of the digital plots, and the team has hence already completed three successful LAND sales across several platforms. Furthermore, over 10,000 LANDs have been sold through platforms such as Shopify, Binance NFT, OpenSea, and NFTb.

Also, the LAND staking function is in fact the first utility to be linked to the virtual plots prior to the formal launch of the ‘Meta-Cities’, where the LANDs shall ultimately be used to introduce content created by individuals within Dvision Metaverse.

What else is there to know?

The Dvision team has created a new rewards program called DVG (Dvision Gold). Essentially, this is a digital reward currency that is necessary to improve PETs and enable consumers to effectively utilize P2E (Play-To-Earn) in the Dvision World metaverse. Secondly, the staking period is also separated into three stages, namely one month, three months, and finally six months. The longer the staking time, the more likely it is that users will receive a better payoff. ‘Random Building Boxes’ will also be distributed beginning with the 90-day staking period. The only difference is the style of building, but if users open a random box, they will always get one regardless.

It’s worth mentioning, that Dvision Network has lately been advancing from the technological perspective, as they have integrated Coinbase Wallet, Bitski, Wallet Connect and Fortmatic, which allows their metaverse users to have simplified and diverse access to their virtual world. Apart from that, Dvision Network has announced previously that they’re going fully on-chain integrating the IPFS and Filecoin data storage solutions to safely store their data.

MetaOne: GameFi is an untapped jewel in the making 2303

Marrtin Hoon, CEO of MetaOne shares his thoughts on how gaming industry has always been evergreen as gamers will always play games regardless of the global economic situation. In fact, more will find solace through the world of gaming. The hottest topic in town would be the evolution of GameFi, the fusion of the words “game” and “finance” which stands for monetization of the gaming experience. Making money playing online games has been around for some time, but with the emergence of GameFi since the 2020s, people are actually making a living by playing these games.

Despite all the hype, there is still a huge potential for community growth as making the switch from traditional gaming to GameFi requires effort, knowledge building, or in certain cases, cash.

Created by Gamers, MetaOne project is committed to reach out to this untapped community to shed the path towards GameFi by neutralising the transition barriers with their single interface platform.

The MetaOne platform highlights effortless onboarding with its one-stop guild management system that facilitates sign ups from all gamers and followers. Their integration with GameFi partners make BigData analysis possible with in-game insights that empower decision makers to execute secure cross-chain NFT activities via their Smart Contract protocol. The ecosystem within is looking forward to bringing tremendous benefit to all stakeholders while contributing to the GameFi space expansion.

“The market now is very turbulent but also gave us an opportunity to prove some key points. MetaOne’s key strategy has always been to convert this massive group of gamers to enter into GameFi through a credible platform that provides science and data clearly to them for making right choices. This will have material impacts to GameFi studios and ultimately the blockchain community,” said Marrtin, CEO of MetaOne, “We are so excited about communicating this vision to all geographical regions and realizing it into real executable plans where guilds, gamers, GameFi studios and users can see and feel the tangibles.”

Fundamentally, Metaone does not compete with Guilds, games, and online ecosystems but rather is a comprehensive enabler and force multiplier for the Gamefi space, integrating analytics, guild management, NFT asset management, and Game NFT activities that can be harnessed to empower these spaces plus changing how the industry operates.
