$8.5B in BTC Repayment Plan - The WAGMI Journal #23

Don't let the FUD affect you.

In today’s issue:

The crypto market is flat with the global crypto market cap still sitting above $2.7 trillion. The Sandbox (SAND) is one of the few larger market cap tokens that generated a significant return in the past 24h — its Alpha will be launched on November 29, 2021. In other news, Mt. Gox creditors are finalizing the repayment plan, Crypto.com announced its massive $700M deal, and the CFTC released the Digital Commodities Exchange Act.

Starting today, our daily issue will be sent out before 9 am EST.

We’re continually improving our content — based on our readers’ suggestions, we are working to add:

  • a section showing open interest and other trading-related metrics 24-h changes

  • a section showing newly released projects

Please reach out if you have any other ideas or would like us to recap a segment of the market.

📰Market News

⎆Mt. Gox Repayment Plan

Mt. Gox, one of the largest crypto exchanges from the 2014 era, is continuing its long-running saga as creditors of the now-defunct exchange are finalizing a plan that to reimburse its old users. When this plan eventually passes, there will be approximately 141,686 BTC ($8 billion ++) to be distributed. Having said that, see below:

⎆Crypto.com $700M Staples Center Naming Rights

Perhaps following in the footsteps of FTX, the Singapore-based exchange announced that it has secured the naming rights to the Staples Center for $700M. The deal will also welcome the Lakers as Crypto.com’s partners. As a push to garner more users, we’ve seen crypto exchanges sponsoring sports and eSports-related entities; which is a smart move as the target audiences are generally in a similar cohort, young and digital natives.

⎆CFTC Released the Digital Commodities Exchange Act

Congressman Glen Thompson has released the Digital Commodities Exchange Act (DCEA) which would establish a voluntary regulatory regime for crypto exchanges under the CFTC. The bill would establish a new regulatory regime for crypto exchanges at the CFTC. Currently, spot markets have no federal regulator in the U.S., though that is a contentious subject. We’ve also been seeing both the SEC and CFTC actively trying to create frameworks and arguing to have more jurisdiction over the crypto market.
