Indian crypto exchange WazirX reported a significant growth in its user base and trading volume over the year. They claimed the platform’s user base grew to 10 million during 2021, which represents a tenfold increase. WazirX’s 2021 trading volume to date has been around $38 billion, CoinDesk reported, with a month-over-month increase of 44%. They had an important surge of 2,648% in users who registered to the platform from some of India’s largest cities, Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad (Tier II and Tier III), where crypto trading already had reported maturity before with high rates of interest and transactions in users under 35 years. They claimed this healthy growth also saw a great amount of support and interest by women investors in the areas, who had increased 30% to 40% in the user base by September. India reportedly has one of the world’s fastest-growing crypto market, with a 641% yearly increase, according to Chainalysis: Large institutional-sized transfers above $10 million worth of cryptocurrency represent 42% of transactions sent from India-based addresses, versus 28% for Pakistan and 29% for Vietnam. Those numbers suggest that India’s cryptocurrency investors are part of larger, more sophisticated organizations. Related Reading | Indian Investments In Crypto Grow Rapidly As $40 Billion Milestone Is Reached Towards Crypto Literacy In the past year, WazirX has focused on a strategy that aims to grow crypto literacy in India by providing transparency and different sources of education. For this reason, they launched India’s crypto exchange first transparency report last October, where they stated the following: we are committed to spreading the right information to our users by fostering a conducive environment to help them make informed choices. Amongst their efforts, WazirX CEO Nischal Shetty carried a Twitter campaign under the hashtag #IndiaWantsCrypto with the purpose of sharing cryptocurrency insights and creating awareness on the industry, “which generates thousands of jobs, not to mention vast amounts of monetary value.” They have also launched YouTube series, ‘Blockchain Papers’, and a podcast. All to grow the user’s understanding of their platform, clear fears, and misconceptions. They are also collaborating with educational institutions, such as IIT, IIM, and Delhi University. Tackling misinformation and busting misconceptions around crypto is just one of the ways we think will help our users make informed crypto investment decisions. These projects are also meant to open paths between the crypto industry and the country’s policymakers, hoping that more widespread information will help bring regulations. Crypto Exchanges Hope For Regulations Cryptocurrencies adoption has had a rough path in India over the years. The scenario is not clear enough, although many users and crypto exchanges remain hopeful for future regulations to bring clarity and the possibility for growth in the industry. In 2018 the central bank of India banned all cryptocurrencies, which had many responses from investors and exchanges who were affected by the decision. Around that time, WazirX launched WazirX P2P “to help users buy/sell crypto with INR” and carried a 1000-day Twitter campaign “to build a case of why we need to allow crypto to foster innovation”. Then, in March 2020, The Supreme Court of India lifted the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) ban and called it “unconstitutional”. The crypto panorama started to soften for India, which allowed WazirX to become one of the country’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges. Discussions around regulations started to arise back then. India’s crypto exchanges and investors participated in off-the-record meetings with law enforcement agencies and banks hoping to reach a point of amicability. The expectations are for the government to classify bitcoin as an asset class and for the Securities and Exchange Board of India to regulate cryptocurrencies and bring clarity, closing the doors to another ban. Currently, the lower house of parliament listed a meeting under the name “Hearing of the views of associations, industry experts on the subject of ‘CryptoFinance’: Opportunities and challenges,” believed to happen in February 2022. Crypto exchanges, like WazirX, were officially included as invitees for the first time around and their hopes continue to raise.

While Jason Citron said the NFT feature was in “pre-release” mode, he has now changed his tune after being bombarded with thousands of comments calling on him to drop the plans.
At least Discord knows where it’s standing now. And, with this story, we know how early into the cryptocurrency game we all are. And how misunderstood all of this is by the general public. Discord’s founder and CEO Jason Citron hinted at possible integration with the Ethereum ecosystem, with NFTs, and with the incoming Web3. And all hell broke loose. Related Reading | Top Stars Line Up To Support Environmentally Friendly NFT Platform OneOf Discord fanatics spammed Citron’s replies and canceled their subscriptions to their Nitro premium service. Discord’s own employees took to social media to express their discomfort. Video game culture influencers rallied the masses and gathered hundreds of Likes and Retweets. What were their reasons? Environmental concerns. And that they consider NFTs a scam, that’s also ruining video games somehow. Sight… Let’s unpack all of this. How Did Discord Unveil Their Web3 Plans? Content creator Packy McCormick wrote an incredibly long article about Discord’s history and how it could evolve. Of course, the plan ended with cryptocurrencies, NFTs, their own multichain wallet, and an ill-advised new token. How could it not? It’s obvious that should be the direction that a successful but not entirely profitable company like Discord should go, right? The article concluded: “We strongly believe that the company should follow its users’ pull into web3. The company’s biggest successes to date came when it decided to build the communications infrastructure for gamers; now, it has the opportunity to build a more complete set of tools for this game that we’re all playing all across the internet.” Apparently, McCormick overestimated the crypto movement. Not everybody is playing the game. In fact, some people hate it with a passion. Discord’s Jason Citron replied with an image that showed some kind of integration between the service, Metamask, and WalletConnect. It also featured the Ethereum logo. The popular meme phrase “probably nothing” completed the tweet. probably nothing pic.twitter.com/p4P6MoNGgd — Jason Citron (@jasoncitron) November 8, 2021 The tweet received hundreds of replies. Most of them bashing their plans, denouncing NFTs, and citing environmental concerns. Which is really funny, if you think about it. Discord’s logo is a videogame controller, and that community was their original audience. And playing video games uses orders of magnitude more electricity than all of the blockchains combined. BTC price chart on Bitbay | Source: BTC/USD on TradingView.com Are Discord And Web3 A Match Or Not? They seem to be. If you read the article that started it all, it’s hard to argue with its logic. McCormick said: “The last of these gestures at Discord’s grip on web3. It has undoubtedly become the coordination platform of choice for all manner of projects including NFTs, DAOs, crypto investing groups, and crypto startups. It’s genuinely startling how quickly this has become a norm in the sector.” A huge number of DAOs and NFT projects run their communities on Discord. This seemed like a foolproof bet. Techcrunch even took it a step further: “With MetaMask support, Discord could become a place where people display their NFTs in galleries linked to user profiles or choose “verified” avatar images, with ownership backed up through the blockchain.” So probably nothing = actually nothing pic.twitter.com/IlzIFSWnnL — cobie (@CryptoCobain) November 11, 2021 This is something Twitter Crypto seems to be working on without complaints. How could this have gone so wrong? What makes the Discord community different? McCormick asked: “What would it look like if Bored Ape holders could buy and sell within the same channels they host conversations? What if members of the Bankless DAO could buy new tokens in-line with a discussion about them?” We’ll probably never know. Related Reading | Christie’s Will Auction Original Art From Gary Vee‘s Veefriends NFT Collection The Aftermath People are severely uninformed about cryptocurrencies. Those articles about the environmental risks that blockchains supposedly pose really did a number on them. However, there’s something else going on here. Casting a wide net, the Discord community seems to be technologically driven and one that appreciates art. They should be on the side of NFTs, but they are wildly against the movement. Almost manically. This is the reaction of a 3D artist that works for Discord: I hope leaders can humbly listen the chorus of vehement moral disgust this teaser has already invited. this sincerely does not have to happen. https://t.co/JZZBI2npVs — Kevin Tang (@Yolo_Tengo) November 9, 2021 And this is another Discord employee, who also retweeted these two terrible-terrible takes on the event: kinda cringe ngl https://t.co/hceLj105UN — Kaara ➡️ Forge Ahead (@kaara_raven) November 8, 2021 Where is that rage coming from? Is this just about the environment? Because they work in a tech company, and technology uses dirty electricity. Is this just about scams and money laundering? Because the art world, in general, is built upon scams and money laundering. No, there’s something else here. The crypto world arises a rage in them that shouldn’t be ignored. Check the replies under Citron’s tweets and you’ll see. Just remember how many furries use your platform, and how much money furries have,and how they almost universally hate NFTs and crypto. I would genuinely be surprised if you could show me 5 furries without discord accounts. You do have competition in the market. — Logan Mish 🗝️ (@Mishaniz) November 11, 2021 Speaking about Discord’s CEO, he backpedaled his company’s whole Web3 plan with a PR friendly: “Thanks for all the perspectives everyone. We have no current plans to ship this internal concept. For now we’re focused on protecting users from spam, scams and fraud. Web3 has lots of good but also lots of problems we need to work through at our scale.” And to drive the point home, they told Techcrunch that the screenshot came from a hackathon: “We’re always exploring and hacking away at things we think will improve Discord for all the communities we serve.” Yeah, sure Discord. We believe you. Featured Image: Discord’s Ethereum plans from this tweet | Charts by TradingView

Crypto Exchange FTX US reported great growth during 2021 third quarter with an average daily trading volume of approximately $360 billion, a 512% jump from the second quarter. FTX US’ user count surged 52% quarter-over-quarter, increased its headcount by 30%, and held about 4.5% of the U.S. crypto spot market’s volume by September 30th, a 2% increase compared to the beginning of the quarter. The company has reached a total value of $25 billion. Related Reading | Solana, FTX, Lightspeed Ventures To Launch $100M Web3 Gaming Fund Brett Harrison, President of FTX US, commented during a Yahoo Finance interview: The trust and support of our user base has allowed FTX US to become the fastest growing and most in-demand crypto exchange in the US, but we have barely scratched the surface. We will continue to improve our existing offerings and rapidly expand into new areas, including derivatives, NFTs, and payment services. Institutions Make 60% Of FTX US’s Trading Volume The growth shows a contrast with the Q3 report from crypto exchange giant Coinbase, which showed a 29.2% drop in their trading volume and a transacting user count decrease of 16%, from 8.8 million to 7.4 million quarter-over-quarter. The main difference between FTX US and Coinbase, Harrison explained, is that the latter sees more retail volume, while 60% of FTX US’s volume comes from institutions like hedge funds, high-frequency and proprietary trading firms. FTX had great brand exposure and marketing strategy during Q3. Harrison stated that the successful numbers are partially owed to the sports partnerships with distinguished athletes such as Tom Brady -and his wife, Gisele Bündchen-, alliances with Major League Baseball and the Miami Heat, as well as the weight of institutional investors in the platform. Harrison commented to a news portal: “We’re now really being able to activate those partnerships and use them to advertise for our brand, to run promotions, to run giveaways and get people excited about signing up for our product,” He also commented on FTX US’s aim to expand into the NFTs ecosystem, having recently launched a Solana-based NFTs marketplace of their own that focuses on providing “simpler, safer and easier tools to remove the barriers (…) to enter the NFT space”. Their NFT project interconnects with the alliances with the athletes: Many of our partnerships with these athletes involve NFTs and intellectual property that can be used for NFTs in some way, to really be able to activate those and bring exclusive NFTs to the FTX marketplace that no one else has, we really want to improve our offering there.

Terra (LUNA) has surged during the past week after a period of consolidation as the network has begun burning the supply of its native token. As of press time, LUNA trades at $51,16 with a 5% loss in the daily chart. Related Reading | Why The Terra Ecosystem Delayed A Major Mainnet Upgrade For Late September Yesterday, before Bitcoin and major cryptocurrencies dropped from new-all times highs, LUNA started a breakout to the upside and seem ready to breakthrough the resistance at $54. However, the rally was spoiled by the flash crash and LUNA was rejected near the mid area around its current levels. The rally seems drive by the implementation of 3 major upgrades on the Terra mainnet. As NewsBTC reported 3 weeks ago, the network was ready to introduce the Colombus-5 and Wormhole v2 with the Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) protocol upgrade. The first of these 3 improvements COL-5 was set to implement a deflationary mechanism for LUNA. In addition, the upgrade was designed to increase Terra’s interoperable capabilities. In the past year, tokens with a burning supply system have seen great appreciation. For example, Binance Coin (BNB) rose from the low $50 and reached an all-time high above $600. Ethereum and its recently integrated EIP-1559 is another example. The network changed its fee model to burn a portion of ETH with each transaction. LUNA could follow a similar path with $80 as a potential reasonable target for LUNA in the short term but could record further gains above $100 and join Solana (SOL) as one of the top performers in 2021. Investor Daniel Cheung has been very bullish on Terra (LUNA) and its ecosystem due to its potential to disrupt the stablecoin sector. Upon launch of the burning mechanism, Cheung said: Thesis for $LUNA is playing out; $140 price target in the short term still holds. Long term, Terra is one of the few protocols with the potential to be in the trillion-dollar market cap range given TAM for stable coins is infinite. 🔥has started Parabolic pic.twitter.com/Yi1FSTZjSz — Do Kwon 🌖 (@stablekwon) November 10, 2021 Terra (LUNA) Started Its Moon Phase? With Bitcoin moving sideways after the crash, the altcoin market could take the opportunity to diminish the BTC dominance. For LUNA this could translate into price discovery. Related Reading | Why Terra (LUNA) Will Reward Users With New Community Bounty Program To achieve this goal, LUNA must reclaim $54 and smash through the resistance at $56 with a potential short-term price target at $60. Cheung added the following on LUNA’s potential to enter the top 10 by market cap, the current phase of the bull run, and the asset’s fundamentals: It is important to learn to zoom out on the charts. $LUNA & $SOL are amazing buying oppts here, bullish structure still very strong and story continues to get better here. The run is not over yet and both will go parabolic soon. Best assets always have bids.
