News Roundup: Adios, 2021!

It’s the last news roundup of the year, written on the last day of the year. You don’t see a coincidence like that every day! ?

We’re all hyped about ending 2021 on a high. Like everyone, the crypto market is also doing some flexing ?. The last week of the year brought some interesting news, so let’s take a look: 

Here We Go Again ?

Every year, crypto heads come out to give their predictions about coin prices. Last week, Tom Lee – a popular Twitter analyst – said he believes Bitcoin will hit $200,000 by the end of 2022 ?. 

Lee’s prediction is enough to get you hyped, although we also remember that he predicted $100,000 for Bitcoin in 2021. What do you think? 

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom ?️

It’s never too late to jump on a trend. And if anyone knows about speed, it’s Ferrari. To end the year, Ferrari announced a deal with Velas – a Swiss blockchain company – to create “digital content” for its fans. 

We don’t know what “digital content” Ferrari hopes to create, but we know that Velas is a big name in the NFT space. Ferrari-themed NFTs will be so cool! ?

Starting the Year Right ? 

Robinhood has made waves all through 2021, from its IPO to its many fines. But, it wants to start 2022 on a high note, and it’s turning to crypto to do that. 

Recently, Robinhood confirmed that it would launch a crypto wallet for its users in January. This is another big tech company embracing crypto in a big way, and we love to see it! 

Crypto & Margaritas ?

If you thought CBDC fever ended in 2021, we’ve got news for you. Many countries are still rushing to launch central bank digital currencies (CBDCs).

Don’t believe us? Just ask Mexico. A top government official confirmed last week that they plan to launch a CBDC by 2024. More to come, please! We’re loving it ?

Ending 2021 With a Bang! ?

Most of us ended 2021 by resting with our families and going off work. MicroStrategy ended the year by going shopping. MicroStrategy first became famous in 2020 after buying millions of dollars worth of Bitcoin. Last week, the company bought an additional 1,914 BTC. This means that MicroStrategy now has $6 billion worth of Bitcoin chilling in the bank ?. Talk about a big flex.
