Comments are off for this post.
A world with Soulbound Tokens (SBTs) may not be so far off after all. In a recent announcement from Web3 development platform Idexo, the company stated that it recently added SBTs into its Software Development Kit (SDK). Effectively, this would grant any and all developers using the platform the ability to create SBTs, as well as the option to host these reputation tokens on several different blockchains, with more options currently in the works. So far, developers will be able to create SBTs on Avalanche, BNBChain, Fantom, Polygon, and (of course) Ethereum. The best part? Idexo says it is prioritizing […]

If you’re having trouble understanding the difference between cryptocurrency and NFTs, we’ve got you covered with our NFTs vs. crypto guide. But if you need an even shorter explanation, you’re in the right place. We’ve created a bite-sized explainer on what they are, how they interact, and their main differences. Let’s dive right in. What is Crypto? Cryptocurrencies are blockchain-based digital currencies secured via cryptography. Because they’re so highly protected, they’re nearly impossible to counterfeit or double-spend.

The year of crypto enforcement continues. Not two months after the FBI arrested a former OpenSea employee on charges of insider trading, the U.S. Department of Justice has released a statement explaining its decision to charge Ishan Wahi, Coinbase’s former product manager, with wire fraud conspiracy and wire fraud in connection with a scheme to commit insider trading.

Will 2022 be the year of NFT regulation? With regulatory bodies and enforcement agencies in the U.S. paying close attention to the world of cryptocurrencies, digital assets, and the crimes committed within these spheres, it certainly looks like it might be. We’ve seen the FBI charge a former OpenSea employee with insider trading; the founders of the now infamous Frosties NFT project arrested for making off with $1.3 million in a rug pull; and Le Anh Tuan, founder of the doomed Baller Ape Club NFT project and community, charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, in addition to conspiracy to […]

Cryptocurrency and NFTs: What’s the Difference?

Comments are off for this post.
NFTs. Cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin. Ethereum. Web3. To someone who has never directly interacted with these things before, the crypto world can seem obtuse, opaque, and overtly strange.  All of which is completely understandable. The advent of the blockchain and the technologies it supports represent a sea-change on par with the advent of the internet itself. And just as people reacted to the early days of the internet with a wide variety of emotions that included skepticism, excitement, and outright fear, blockchain-based technology is inspiring the same gamut in people today.  The two biggest unknowns of the technology manifest in the form of […]

Crypto’s most recent bear market has people in the NFT space understandably a bit on edge, to put it mildly. But, while creators, investors, and project developers wrestle with these anxieties, those outside of the Web3 world are becoming even more skeptical of all things crypto-related.  Even in the best of times, cryptocurrencies have held a reputation for being unstable. The advent of things like stablecoins — cryptocurrencies tied to an underlying asset like a national currency — have done their part in bringing some stability to some tokens some of the time, but the issue remains.  One of the […]

Comments are off for this post.

Often used in the crypto world as a marketing lever for tokens, dApps, or NFT projects, airdrops are primarily distributed for three main reasons. to reward users for the early adoption of a project; to provide existing community members with additional value; and to raise awareness and encourage new users to test out a project. Most airdrops are distributed in one of two ways. They can either be […]

How Ethereum NFTs Could Provide a Safe Haven From Crypto Market Volatility

Comments are off for this post.
The crypto market is (and always has been) noticeably volatile. This isn’t new information. Considering the fact that crypto prices are influenced directly by supply and demand, investor sentiments, government regulations, and more (including Elon Musk’s tweets), traders have continued close study of the market in hopes of maximizing gain and minimizing loss. But when it comes to the NFT market, it’s an entirely different ballgame. Does this feel counterintuitive? Kind of. It would make sense if non-fungible tokens (NFTs) were inherently tied to crypto prices. Right? Well, as the NFT ecosystem has grown and evolved, market researchers have become […]
