about Yuga Labs

News about Yuga Labs. Yuga Labs, the company behind the Bored Apes Yacht Club (BAYC) and the Otherside metaclass universe, will release a new Mecha Apes NFT collection. According to sources, Yuga Labs will release another Mecha Apes NFT collection in hopes of raising an additional $50 million.

The new NFT collection will help bolster Yuga Labs’ piggy bank, though the company has already raised $450 million in a seed funding round this March and also raised $600 million from sales of the Otherside meta-universe NFT.

Yuga Labs bought the cryptopunks. An unstoppable stream of new NFTs

Yuga Labs first launched the Bored Apes Yacht Club (BAYC) NFT collection in April 2021, and the company has been growing the ecosystem ever since, releasing additional products.

It looks like this year we will witness the launch of another NFT collection from Yuga Labs.

It is not yet known what the monkeys in the new collection will look like. However, according to a leaked document, this NFT-collection will be closely related to Otherside’s meta-universe and play a major role in its development.

So why Mecha Apes? The Mecha Piece artifact can be found in the territories of the meta-universe. It is assumed that this item will be linked to the new NFT collection.

Big Business

In addition to buying cryptopunks and continuing to promote its own NFT collections, Yuga Labs is also acquiring other non-interchangeable token collections. In March, the company announced that it had bought well-known collections such as Cryptopunks and Meebits from Larva Labs. Yuga Labs is currently valued at $4 billion, and with further launches of new and exciting NFTs, the company may be worth much more in the future.

Yuga Labs’ monkey business is still making huge profits for the company and this is likely to be the trend in the coming years.

cardano stablecoin djed

On January 25, the COTI network announced that Cardano-developed stablecoin Djed will launch next week. The announcement did not include a specific Djed stablecoin release date, but generally confirmed previous Cardano notices that the stablecoin would be introduced to the cryptocurrency community by the end of January 2023:

According to developers, the only technical reason for the launch delay is the chain index synchronization process. They specified that this process could take 14 days, with it having been started “a week ago and is expected to be completed next week.” Accordingly, Cardano stands a good chance of meeting its deadline and launching Djed by the end of January.

The announcement also says that DJED and its balancing coin SHEN will be listed on the Bitrue exchange. This Singapore-based exchange has already officially confirmed its readiness to list the new stablecoin:

Also, Minswap, the leading decentralized exchange (DEX) in the Cardano ecosystem, has already announced the creation of two pools (ADA/DJED and ADA/SHEN) for the new tokens starting next week.

As the developers promise, the amount of overcollateralization of stablecoin will be 400% – 800%. Thus, “it will have 4-8 times more base value behind it compared to the total amount of Djed coins issued.”

Will it help the ADA exchange rate

Amid news of the imminent launch of a new stablecoin in the ecosystem, the Cardano (ADA) exchange rate has been showing strong gains lately. However, the token came under pressure this morning during the Asian trading session.

ADA marked an 11-week high of $0.384 on January 22, but is pulling back today along with the entire crypto market. At the time of writing, its intraday drawdown was about 5.7% and it was trading around $0.36. However, inside the week, the coin continues to stay in the green zone (about 3.5% at the time of writing).

The current pullback could be a convenient opportunity for Cardano and ADA enthusiasts to enter the market at profitable levels ahead of Djed’s imminent release.

We previously reported that the Wall Street Giants were among the lenders to FTX.

Former Chancellor of the Exchequer to head a UK cryptocurrency company. Is cryptocurrency regulated in the UK?

is cryptocurrency regulated in the uk

Former UK Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond has become head at copper.co, a provider of institutional solutions for storing and trading digital assets. Is cryptocurrency regulated in the UK?

Hammond has served as a senior advisor to Copper since October 2021. During that time, he provided strategic advice to the company’s team as the firm grew significantly and expanded its operations and services worldwide. Since he joined the company, its staff has grown from 50 to more than 300 people and revenues have doubled.

“I was honored to benefit from Lord Hammond’s strategic experience based on his successful career in politics and business. I am very pleased that he has agreed to become chairman of Copper,” said Copper CEO Dmitry Tokarev.

He said Hammond, in particular, will focus on combining traditional finance with distributed ledger technology.

“I’ve really enjoyed working with Copper, a company that pioneered digital asset investment technology and is increasingly becoming a leading option for global financial institutions to trade and protect their digital assets,” Hammond said.

Is cryptocurrency legal in the UK?

According to Hammond, the UK now needs to accelerate the creation of a better regulatory regime for digital assets, as Switzerland and the EU are already well ahead of the United Kingdom in the development of the cryptosphere. He believes that the U.K. financial services sector should use distributed ledger technology as a key part of its strategy to remain a major global financial center after Brexit. Should we expect bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to be legalized in the UK?

The U.K. set its sights on the cryptosphere a few years ago. Since then, the UK has introduced a lot of initiatives aimed at regulating and developing crypto. Among the latest key changes is the extension of tax breaks for digital assets. British authorities intend to extend investment managers’ exemption rights for crypto-assets, making it easier to include them in portfolios of foreign funds managed in the UK without the risk of taxation. Also, the UK Central Bank has begun preparations for the issuance of the state digital currency (CBDC).

Earlier, we reported that the SEC began inspecting the holdings of cryptocurrency by investment advisors.

Realized bitcoin yields are back in the green zone: should we expect a move towards $24,000 amid high bitcoin yields?

best bitcoin yield

The new year in the crypto market started with an impressive rally and bitcoin’s realized yield returned to the green zone. Let’s examine whether BTC will continue to move towards the next resistance level on the back of higher bitcoin yields, or whether it was a bull trap.

Bitcoin’s key metrics have strengthened considerably, with a prominent PlanB analyst reporting that we are seeing BTC yields turning positive again recently. This metric measures the actual profit made during the holding period of an asset.

According to Woo Charts, bitcoin’s selling price is currently at $19,785. BTC surpassed that level on January 13 and has been trading well above it ever since.

The next frontier in the asset’s path is the 200-week moving average at $24,685. This metric is traditionally an indicator of the bottom of the bear market, and fixing above it will confirm the uptrend.

Market sentiment has shifted to positive

Moreover, market sentiment has also improved, with the BTC Fear and Greed Index entering the “greedy” zone. This is the highest since the end of March 2022.

Capriole Fund founder Charles Edwards commented on Twitter:

“Many people thought the collapse of FTX would end the crypto market. But bitcoin always comes back stronger than ever after the purge of bad players. Nothing will stop the inexorable pace of our industry.”

What to expect from the bitcoin price

At the time of publication, BTC was trading at $22,930. The asset has been developing in this area for almost a week now.

Bitcoin’s next target is $24,400, a price we last saw in August 2022. If resistance is broken through, there won’t be many obstacles left on the way to $30,000.

We previously reported that Polygon beat Ethereum and MATIC pushed Solana out of the top 10 cryptocurrencies.
