The volatility didn’t bother crypto investors as everyone was entertained by the bitcoin conference taking place in El Salvador right now.

During the conference, President Nayib Bukele announced plans to build an entire city based on Bitcoin, Bitcoin City.

The city will be built in the eastern region of La Union and will receive geothermal energy from a volcano. As such, the president has promised that he will produce zero emissions and not levy many taxes.

He added his megalomaniac plans for the city that will be circular – similar to the cities founded by Alexander the Great – but will also have an airport, residential and commercial areas, and a central square that should look like the BTC symbol seen from the air.

You can better understand how this initiative will be funded, which will be supported by Blockstream Adam Back and iFinex – the company behind Tether (USDT) and Bitfinex. Understand: El Salvador has announced that it will issue Bitcoin-linked debt.

market expectations

Before starting to discuss Brazilian economic data, we need to make a brief mention of an important monetary policy decision by the US president.

President Joe Biden’s decision to keep the command of the Fed under the direction of Jerome Powell is seen by the market as a safer path. Due to the scenario abroad, the S&P 500 ended the day with another historic high.

The American currency is now traded at R$ 5.59. Returning to the national scene, then, we realize that the real continues to weaken.

The FOCUS report showed important changes in market expectations. The document presented this year’s accumulated inflation of more than double digits.

According to the analysis already published by the American bank Wells Fargo, the Brazilian currency tends to weaken. “Although the fiscal rule may be intact for the time being, we continue to believe Bolsonaro will seek to further improve cash transfers as the elections approach.”

“As Brazil’s debt and fiscal trajectory worsens over time, we believe financial market sentiment could turn negative towards Brazil and the Brazilian real,” say Bank economists.

CRO continues to rise

Most of the altcoins imitated the performance of the BTC in the last 24 hours, which means that they also suffer from the high volatility of this market in the last 24 hours. Ethereum (ETH) rises 0.26% in one day and remains traded at US$ 4,210.

Published

A blockchain with the ability to perform thousands of transactions per second must be the next Bitcoin. Sam Bankman-Fried believes SOL has the potential to become the next Bitcoin since the Solana blockchain can execute 50,000 transactions per second. 

Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF), in a recent interview with Kitco, praised Solana for its potential to expand to millions of transactions per second. According to the FTX CEO, this makes Solana a critical component of cryptocurrency acceptance and the next Bitcoin.

The scalability of Solana could aid its evolution into a new Ethereum or Bitcoin.

Bitcoin skeptic Saule Omarova to be rejected as Biden’s nominee for OCC in win for crypto

Published

on

  • Saule Omarova was nominated to head OCC and it looked bleak for the future of cryptocurrencies as she is an outspoken critic of Bitcoin.
  • New reports reveal that some Democratic senators in U.S Congress will reject her, and with all Republicans united against her, she will most likely not assume office.

Saule Omarova, a Bitcoin critic who was nominated for one of the most important financial regulatory jobs in the U.S, is looking unlikely to go through Senate confirmation. According to new reports, some Democratic Senators have rejected the Biden pick, particularly opposing her hardline stance against big banks. With Republican Senators all against her, she looks unlikely to be the next Comptroller of the Currency.

Omarova was nominated by the White House in September to take over from the Acting OCC, Michael Hsu. As CNF reported at the time, the cryptocurrency community joined the banking fraternity to ask questions of what would be of her reign. Omarova is an outspoken critic of the big banks, having consistently criticized government bailouts. She has also suggested that the Federal Reserve should be allowed to serve Americans, effectively wiping out the commercial banks.

For cryptocurrencies, the future looked just as bleak. She has previously stated that she believes they “benefit mainly the dysfunctional financial system we already have.”

In her Senate grilling two weeks ago, she held on to her anti-Bitcoin views. Responding to crypto-friendly Senator Cynthia Lummis‘ question on whether Bitcoin threatens national security, she stated:

I’m not an expert on Bitcoin but I’d worry if all our financial transactions were up to some blockchain system where various actors who might actually be located in other countries, not particularly friendly to us, control the functioning of the system.

Omarova to be rejected

According to reports in Washington, Omarova is set to be rejected in Senate. Already, virtually all Republican senators have said they will reject her. Many of them have even attacked her on personal terms, as well as her ‘socialist-leaning’ beliefs.

Axios reports that five Democratic Senators have joined the anti-Omarova bandwagon as well. The five told Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown, who heads the Senate Banking Committee of their dissent. If they vote against her, the Kazakhstan-born academic will stand virtually no chance as the house is almost divided in half between Republicans and Democrats.

However, despite the opposition, the White House continues to back her publicly. A White House official told Axios:

The White House continues to strongly support her historic nomination. Saule Omarova is eminently qualified for this position. She has been treated unfairly since her nomination with unacceptable red-baiting from Republicans like it’s the McCarthy era.
