Embrace change

Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.”

Day 4 of the week! Stay on that grind everybody! 💪

 

Today in history (1893), New Zealand gave all its women the right to vote, and was the first country to do so. 👍

 

In today's newsletter, we will be covering Binance to soon be adding fiat-to-crypto OTC trading, Turkey announcing plans for national blockchain infrastructure and and Indian car manufacturer Tata Motors calling for automotive blockchain tech.

 

Today, we also have our weekly 'Thursday think tank' section, courtesy of our friends over at Flipside Crypto! So be sure to check that out below!

 

Please do not forget to answer the polls down below too! It's a great way to interact with you and hear what you have to say. 💭 Happy reading! 📚

Well that was short-lived 😂

 

Over the last 24 hours, total market capitalization retraced from ~$271 billion to ~$264 billion, with most coins seeing losses in the ~1-5% range. BTC dominance slipped further from ~67.6% to ~67.4%. 24-hour volume registered ~$67 billion.

 

BTC is currently back trading below the $10,000 mark, and is at ~$9,925, down ~3% over yesterday. On the daily chart, BTC has broken below its 50-EMA line, and is currently testing the 100-day EMA line. RSI has dropped to ~39, indicative of building bearish momentum.  👀

Total Market Capitalizations

As one door closes, another opens 🚪

 

Co-founder of cryptocurrency exchange Binance He Yi revealed that Binance will be adding fiat-to-crypto over-the-counter (OTC) trading to its platform in 1 month. 

 

This addition offers users fiat currency gateways for Chinese yuan, and will be part of Binance's strategy to ultimately compete in the Chinese market. It joins an upcoming payment service to let users from 170 countries purchase cryptocurrency assets with fiat currencies on the exchange. 💱

 

The 2017 ban on initial coin offerings caused Chinese authorities to disallow the direct link of exchanges to banks and fiat deposits, and so fiat-to-crypto trading has become a key aspect for China-based crypto traders.

Blockchain takes priority 💯

 

During its Strategy 2023 presentation, Turkey revealed plans to develop a national blockchain framework to use distributed ledger technology (DLT) in public administration. 🗯️

 

The document, which was also the first of ministry-level to mention "Bitcoin (BTC)" as reference, highlighted that DLT and blockchain will take precedence for the upcoming year. A new open-source platform for blockchain will be created in Turkey, as well as a regulatory sandbox for blockchain applications. 

 

Turkish institutions have been opening up to blockchain technology in different areas, including establishing the Istanbul Blockchain and Innovation Centre for the research and development of blockchain technologies. 🏗️

Zooming in 🚗

 

Indian automobile production giant Tata Motors intends to assimilate blockchain solutions into its internal operations. 

 

Part of a new program for startups, dubbed the "Tata Motors Automobility Collaboration Network 2.0," the program aims to produce different industry-related products like blockchain-enabled solutions. 

 

Tata Motors is not the first to embrace blockchain - global leaders like Mercedes-Benz and Chinese automotive group Geely owned-Volvo Cars have also adopted blockchain-related practices and platforms. 🙋‍♀️

Blockchain term of the day 🤓 - Immutable

A property that defines the inability to be changed, especially over time.

Thursday think tank 🧠

Our friends over at Flipside Crypto have produced data revealing the most under- and overvalued coins for the week! 🧐

The scores you see below refer to the ratio of each coin's current 
FCAS rating to its current market capitalization, both standardized to a 1000-point scale. A score above 1 reflects an undervalued coin, and a score below 1 indicates an overvalued asset!

Hold your horses! Before you go ahead and jump right into investing, always remember to first D.Y.O.R (Do your own research)!
