News Roundup: Picking Roses and Chocolate

After all the shake-ups in the stock market last week, it was a pretty good ending to the week as most of the top coins finally went green again. Looks like the market wants to show us some pre-Valentine’s Day love ?. 

Now that we’re done with January and its 200 days, let’s recap and see how we got welcomed into February.

Siuuuuuu! ⚽

Last week, we saw perhaps the biggest crypto sports deal ever. Tezos, one of the oldest blockchains in the market, signed a deal to sponsor Manchester United ?. 

As part of the deal, the Tezos logo will now be placed on all Man. United training gear. So very soon, we will get to see Cristiano Ronaldo rock blockchain-branded fits ?. It’s a win-win for sports and blockchain, people!

B Is For Blockchain ⛓️ 

Alphabet, the parent company of Google, appears to be the latest big tech company to fall in love with crypto and blockchain ?. Last week, the company’s CEO said they want to bring blockchain technology into several of their products and services. 

Alphabet hasn’t let the cat out of the bag yet, but we heard rumors that Google might add crypto support to its Google Pay service ?. So, we’ve got exciting times ahead for sure. 

Not Bored Anymore ?

Bored Ape Yacht Club is one of the biggest non-fungible token (NFT) collections in the market. Everyone’s getting Bored Apes – Steph Curry, Eminem, and even Quidax ?!

Last week, reports suggested that the Bored Ape creators are about to close a huge fundraising deal that could value them y at $5 billion. That NFT money’s looking pretty good, isn’t it? ? 

Ye Says “Nay” ?

Kanye West is one of the most influential artists of our time. But, while Ye has always been an innovator, he’s currently not down with the hottest trend – NFTs ?. 

Ye has been on a social media firestorm lately. In an Instagram post, he warned people not to ask him to do an NFT ?. Fortunately, a lot of other awesome artists like NFTs, so we can take this L for now.

Beef on The Grill ?

So last week, Meta (formerly Facebook) officially shut down its stablecoin, Diem ?. Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s founder, took shots at the company for failing to launch its coin. In an interview, Dorsey claimed that Meta had “wasted” three years trying to launch Diem when they should have focused on better things like Bitcoin ?. Ladies and gentlemen, looks like we’ve got the first crypto shade of the year!
