With July in the books, it is time to take a moment and reflect on what happened over the past month in the crypto space, privacy sector, and with Raze Network.
Let’s Talk Crypto
The digital asset market enjoyed healthy price gains led by its two largest assets near the end of July. The prices of Bitcoin and Ethereum were up and finished strong into the end of the month. Other assets also had particularly strong trading weeks, which included the new gaming NFT token Axie Infinity (AXS).
The B Word conference (an event hosted by the Crypto Council for Innovation) was attended by a number of the most influential people of the crypto world, who all swore allegiance to the future of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.
To give you some highlights, Elon Musk still owns cryptocurrencies and said he had been holding bitcoins for the long term. Tesla is willing to accept BTC as payment again once improvements are made to its energy consumption. Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey, confirmed to investors that bitcoin will be a “big part” of the company’s future.
Privacy And Foe
- The European Commission unveiled a new proposal to expand the bloc’s financial surveillance system and ensnare more cryptocurrency transactions in its web. Wrapped in anti-terrorist rhetoric, these rules would force cryptocurrency services to collect and share datasets on millions of innocent users.
- The New York Times reported on Monday that QR codes have increased businesses’ ability to track and analyze customer behavior, with some apps collecting personal data such as order history, emails, and phone numbers.
