Weird World of Crypto

This new segment explores the weird, whacky and downright baffling crypto related news of the week. LimeWire, our favourite torrenting software from the naughties is back, but not as you knew it! It’s been re-branded as an NFT platform for music related digital assets, will be as big of a hit as it was all those years ago? And celebrity chef Gino D’Acampo is taking his first step into the video game and NFT space with his new “metaverse” video game “Big Town Chef”. Will it be a boom or bust?


Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelensky just signed a law to give crypto “regulatory structure

A month ago, Ukraine’s parliament passed a bill to “legalize” cryptocurrency, preparing a framework for the regulation and management of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. Now, the country’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, has signed into law that bill, named “On Virtual Assets,” which establishes a legal framework for the country to operate a regulated crypto market. Crypto exchanges and firms handling digital assets will now be required to register with the government to operate legally in Ukraine, and banks will be allowed to open accounts for crypto firms.


What we cover in this episode:

  • Federal Reserves decision to hike interest rates
  • Limewire being rebranded as an NFT marketplace
  • Gino D’Acampo’s new NFT videogame
  • Ukraine’s new law giving crypto “regulatory structure”
