Latest news and updates from ALPEX, a leader in digital asset trading!

Welcome to the ALPEX newsletter, your resource for the latest important updates from the leader in digital asset and derivatives trading!

ALPEX is dedicated to providing the world’s most secure, stable, and reliable digital asset trading platform, built around currency trading, over-the-counter (OTC) trading, perpetual contract trading, financial derivatives, and much more. ALPEX is the preferred digital asset trading platform for millions of users worldwide and the first choice for both professional and first-time traders in over 150 countries.

Weekly Overview:

Our week was once again riveting, as TikTok launched its maker-led collection. US Positive’s announcement of a Universal Payment Channel and Visa’s search for cross-chain interoperability should be considered positive moves for the cryptocurrency industry, especially coming just days after Pennsylvania senator Pat Toomey expressed concern about China’s crackdown on crypto. Our weekly newsletter includes all this and much more.

A new collection of NFTs called TikTok Top Moments has been announced by TikTok that is inspired by its top creators and that the NFTs will be used to empower more creators. In TikTok’s announcement, creators will be rewarded and acknowledged for their content, and fans will own culturally significant moments through TikTok NFTs. Additionally, the NFTs will be issued on the Ethereum blockchain via Immutable X, a layer 2 for NFTs on Ethereum that allows for cheaper transactions. Six ‘culturally significant’ TikTok videos selected by the TikTok Top Moments will feature celebrities and creators such as Lil Nas X, Rudy Willingham, Bella Poarch, Curtis Roach, Gary Vaynerchuck, and more.

As part of its crypto payments hub launch, Visa will provide interoperability between different blockchain networks and payment channels to make digital assets more accessible. A paper published by Visa outlines a universal hub for the integration of stablecoins and central bank digital currencies in the future. Various blockchains and digital currency platforms will be connected through the Universal Payment Channels (UPC) protocol, allowing users to exchange funds between them. The UPC aims to address one of the biggest challenges facing digital asset adoption: cross-chain interoperability. Also, Visa has begun testing the UPC on Ethereum’s Ropsten Testnet.

In an announcement on Twitter Tuesday, El Salvador’s President Nayib Bukele announced the country had taken steps towards getting its bitcoin volcano project up and running. Bukele announced the start of the project in a few words and released a video showing an energy factory surrounded by a forest near a volcano.

Coinbase will soon offer direct deposits of paychecks as cryptocurrencies to its customers so crypto traders can earn more income. It will offer users the option of depositing a percentage of their paychecks into their digital wallets by choosing USD or a cryptocurrency of their choice. As of now, Coinbase only offers the service to users in the United States, and there are no plans for it to be added globally. Besides allowing paycheck deposits, the company also announced it is expanding its crypto-trader Visa debit card. Later this fall, Coinbase customers in the U.S. will be able to get the card, which will enable you to spend USD and various cryptocurrencies and earn rewards in the latter. As of now, cardholders can earn 1% in ETH, BTC, and DOGE, or 4% in GRT or XLM, but they’ll soon also be able to earn 1% in DAI, or 4% in AMP and RLY.

The Chinese government intensified its crackdown on cryptocurrency-related activities, so Alibaba Group Holding no longer allows the sale of cryptocurrency mining equipment on its wholesale platforms. After October 15, any sellers who continue to offer the banned products will be penalized, according to the company. Accounts and stores will be blocked, and accounts may even be closed.

In contrast to China’s hostile stance against the cryptocurrency industry with outright bans, the United States seems to take a more open-minded stance. According to Fed Chair Jerome Powell, cryptocurrency will not be banned in the United States. Could we be in for even more favorable news? A US congressman asked whether cryptocurrencies could replace gold as the nation’s gold standard after Fed Chair Jerome Powell pledged no prohibition of the use of digital assets.

Stay tuned to our upcoming weekly newsletter for more interesting pivotal moments in the world of blockchain and cryptocurrencies.
