What’s Happening in Crypto: We Just Made the Forbes List!

December’s here! 🥳 We’re all getting ready to put up Christmas decorations and gather with our friends, and the market actually gave us a gift by rising slightly towards the end of the week 📈. 

Here’s to hoping December will be a much better one than November 🤞. But, before you go ahead with the holiday shopping, you might want to set some money apart and open a USD Savings plan

Crypto Took Over Forbes 😎 💪

This week, Forbes Magazine released its annual “30 Under 30” list, honoring people under the age of 30 who are doing awesome things in the field 💪. And as you can guess, several names in crypto made the list 👏. 

As Forbes put it, even the bear market couldn’t stop some of these crypto geniuses. Want to know who made the list? 🙃 Check it out here.

Telegram is Launching a Crypto Wallet 👝

In the world of Big Tech companies embracing crypto, Telegram has become the latest name 👀. This week, Telegram’s CEO Pavel Durov confirmed that they will be building a decentralized crypto wallet platform. 

Telegram already has a blockchain up and running. Looks like they’re going full steam ahead into crypto 🚀.

IMPORTANT: We recently relaunched our Quidax Global Telegram group after the old one went offline 😀. We’d like to have every Quidaxian back on the group, so click this link to join. We can’t wait to have you back! 💜

Brazil Approves Crypto for Payments 🇧🇷

This week, Brazil’s Parliament passed a bill that will approve crypto payments in the country 🎉. Basically, the bill allows people and companies to make everyday payments using different cryptocurrencies 🥳. 

So, has Brazil turned to El Salvador? Not really – the President still needs to sign the law first. But, it’s a pretty sweet development nonetheless! 👏

No DOGE For Twitter? 🐶

Last week, Elon Musk revealed his plans for “Twitter 2.0.” And surprisingly, there was no mention of everybody’s favorite meme coin – DOGE 🐶. 

Ever since the Dogefather took over Twitter, many DOGE fans have speculated that he would allow the platform to support DOGE payments 🤔. But, it looks like we’ll have to wait a bit longer to see the coin feature in Twitter’s future.

Indonesia is Building A CBDC Too 🇮🇩

Another week, and another country launched a central bank digital currency (CBDC) 😁. This time, it was Indonesia. The country claimed that they’ve seen an increase in digital payments, and they’d like blockchain technology to help with that. 

The United States started tests for a CBDC two weeks ago, and Japan did last week 🤯. Who do you think could be next?
